Very nice shot, excellent clarity and colours. DOF is perfect.
ciao, Melania.

I love the color and detail. Yellow, pink, and green, that's real natural color blending.



Hi Horia,
Beautiful composition of colors.

Dear Horia
Thank you for showing us this colourful little Butterfly!

The emerald green eyes are beautiful, and the little''toupee'' matches the flower, on which it feeds.

I assume, that butterfly's camouflage also evolved according to their habitat?!?

I like your ''clean'' presentation and especially the natural colours! I deplore the number of members who increase the saturation to unnatural levels!

I also thank you for visiting my portfolio and your kind words.

Have a nice week-end
Greetings Ingrid
