As dutch from origin and a soccer lover I had to post something orange today,luckily our garden has lots of Small Tortoiseshell's these days hovering aroun our lavendel and could make some captures,

I dont think this butterfly does need an extra comment as it has been posted many times before on TN

Thanks for watching,

Hallo Paul,
Ik hoop inderdaad dat Holland er vanavond door komt. Dan moeten ze eindelijk wel eens wat beter gaan spelen. In de voorronden voor het WK was het af en toe schitterend om te zien, maar nu.... Als ze in de finale komen heb ik ook nog een mooie oranje foto om te plaatsen.
Deze foto is erg mooi en goed van scherpte. Uitstekende compositie.
Veel plezier vanavond,

hello paul, great colour combination, looks very good...thanks

Hello Paul,
really a nicely captured butterfly in excellent sharpness. The clarity of the body is well seen with nice fine hairs. The blurry background really make it so exciting to lookespecially with your top view.
the view is so newatr and smooth.


NB: Hope the cup will be yours this time!

Ja Hup Holland!!!

Hi Paul.
It is a pleasure to watch your new picture and work of legendary macro lens. Superb details of the beautiful butterfly. I also like wonderful bokeh and blameless composition of the image. Well done and best wishes.

Hi Paul,
Dit is niet alleen een mooie vlinder, maar je hebt hem ook zeker heel mooi weten vast te leggen. Prachtig van scherpte en steekt goed af tegen de achtergrond van lavendel. Jammer dat een vleugelpunt net niet scherp is.
Genomen vanuit een goede hoek en prachtige kleuren.
groetjes Paula
