Hello Vanni

Good Morning Jose,

Excellent spotting! The tones look very warm here, and the gatekeeper seems to stand out from its surroundings. Quite a suitable frame too.
TFS and have a nice day/week!

Hi Jose,
I like your Pyronia, the quality of the picture is excellent, the pose of the butterfly with half opened wings very natural and the light is diffuse. You might have cropped a little more to avoid the green twig but that is a matter of taste and circumstance. My compliments!
Best regards
