[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Today a posting of a small bluebutterfly,it was busy feeding at a flower and a pity that the antennaes are not visible,but I wanted to post this with open wings,I think its an Idas blue,but it could as well be a silver studded blue,as they are quite a like I posted another version with wings closed in the workshop,maybe someone knows,

Hope you like it

Hi Paul, Great close-up. Excellent details and well exposed colours. Perhaps moving the butterfly more over to the right may improve the composition a bit more as it seems a bit central at the moment. Apart from that very well done and TFS.

Hello Paul,

Excellent capture of this wonderful butterfly! The colors are superb and the exposure perfect. Great details and DOF! Composition is very nice and the defocused BG makes the butterfly stand out. Very good work! Thanks for sharing with us!


Olá Paul,
Você tem macros maravilhosas, gostei muito desta, a inclinação das asas da borboleta marca a fotos. Otimo POV.
Um abraço.
