Ciao Valerian.
Oggi vicino di posto,con una stupenda macro,con di colori molto belli,eccellente nitidezza,molto bene la composizione,complimenti.
Ti auguro un buon week end ciao Marco.

This is a very ..very pleasant capture Valerian! f/5.6 creates almost brilliant depth of field here. Gorgeous light and classical diagonal composition and on top of that an accurate white balance, perfect natural colors and sharpness! Bravo!

Ahhhhhh more signs of Spring! Love this, POV and even the eye contact with sun bathing his wings in light. So lovely

fantastic colour rendering from this beautiful copper with big eyes; bg is well blurred too and framing is great; but I felt DOF a bit shallow, part of butterfly left unfocused; .. IMHO with a couple of step narrower aperture that'd have been avoided, .., pleasant to see nonetheless

Hello Valerian.
Razor sharp focus will excellent details. Exposure is perfect with wings back lit by the sun giving very nice glow effect. Even the underside of the wings are well exposed.Best regards Siggi

Hallo Valerie
Looking at all the butterflies featured in the gallery, one cannot believe that there is such an enormous amount of different types, all with their own prominent markings, colour and features. There are just so many pretty ones and this Large Copper is one of those. It is undeniably a striking butterfly with warm and and subtle colours, and you have captured it beautifully. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

hello Valerian
great sharpness and good composition with beautiful colours
thanks greeting lou

Salut Valerian,
O captura spectaculoasa cu detalii si culori excelente. Rar am intalnit aceasta specie cu aripile de un rosu spre portocaliu foarte bine redate aici.
Numai bine!

Hello Valerian,
You have an interesting collectoin of butterflies. This one I like especially for its vivid coloration and also because it is very rare in my country. Your presentations are always well made what concerns the composition, but the sharpness in general could be slightly improved.
Kind regards

Ciao Valerian. Excellent details beautiful natural colours and intrigant transparencies against the blurred BG. Very well done indeed.


Valerian, this is such a great capture of this very colorful butterfly. Beautiful sharpness and detail. Bill
