Buena luz aunque algo subida en algunas zonas blancas. El enfoque es excelente así como la disposición de los insectos. Bien encuadrada. Preciosa.
Un saludo Tanja.

fantastic shot !!!! my compliments,luciano

Hi Tanja,
A luminous capture!
I like all the details got on this pair, in which we can observe the differences on the antenna's colours and whites spots on the wings.
The vertical composition works pretty good.
Well done and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Hi Tanja.
You managed to catch so interesting scene and have done it perfectly. I like excellent POV and sharpness of the butterflies and stem, natural, well blurred BG and true August southern colours. My warm greetings and TFS.

Hello Tanja,
Excellent capture of these pairing blue butterflies nicely in focus. Sharp details and a beautiful composition. It's just a little overexposed but still a fine image.
TFS and regards,Ulla

Hi Tanja
Now I can say I've seen butterflies mate. A nice capture of this natural event in soft light.....I guess the soft light creates a special mood for these two love butterflies :D

I guess summer is almost over, I think tomorrow the 22nd is the official first day of fall.

Hello Tanja

Félicitation pour cette tres belle image de cet accouplement de ces deux magnifiques papillons, les couleurs sont belles et nettes.
Merci a toi et au revoir....JP

Hello Tanja,
Well timed and captured in absolute brilliance. The light is perfect to expose the vividness of the colors and the act in a very well isolated subjects. I like it so much and hope you won't mind me adding this in my personal theme.
Well done and thanks for sharing.

Have a wonderful weekend.
