Congrats on your third 'birthday'! An excellent image to celebrate it with, not least as the subject can be hard to find. Excellent colours and details, and the flower against the dark background works perfectly.

The focusing on the Thecla betulae is perfect. Excellent the composition of colors that give a great contrast between the little insect and the flower. Great hand of light and exposure with very impressive sharpness and colours.

Happy Third Anniversary. You came on board three months after I did and I just cannot imagine TN without you. You have educated me and motivated me. I'm so proud to be able to call you friend. A beautiful butterfly to celebrate with and a fine example of all the beauties you have posted in the past three years. Here's to the next three!!

a nicely composed portrait of Th. betulae with both butterfly and blossom in very well placed position, well isolated with much impact from a dark background. Good details and pleasantly naturalistic colours under rather difficult natural light conditions.
My congratulations to your 3rd anniversary! You have been very prolific and successful in these years here, sharing a very broad and rich sprectre of observations and your expert knowledge with us, and giving a lot of very constructive critiques and comments. We all ow you a lot for all your valuable contributions here. Looking forward to many more years to come!
With thanks, and best regards,

3 years...my how time flies...a bit faster to me and maybe a bit to you...some days it all seems like more of a memory...ah well..on to the image..
What you HAVE done is diminished the flora just enough so that the butterfly gets full stage...Quit the nice lighting trick there..I think I know how you did it...but my butterfly work will have to wait another day!

Well, congratulations on your 3rd years on TN. I hope we will see you and your great posts here for many years.
This is great selection to celebrate. Great sharp details, POV, composition and marvellous colors. Thanks for sharing this beauty.
Best regards to you and Ulla.

congratulations, you are a very important "landmark" for all members on TN, your knowledges about Nature are absolutely necessary and useful to me and i think to all friends on TN; a fantastic picture of the Brown Hairstreak taken from an excellent POV in a nice pose, superb sharpness and splendid colours in a pleasant composition.
Have a good week.
These congratulatory wishes for your 3rd anniversary at TN is a belated one.
I havent been around much with critiquing, but this message comes with all the admiration i have for you as fellow TNer and your work.
Excellent capture- the image is razor sharp bringing out the patterns on the Hairstreak very well.The smooth velvety texture of its wings can be felt just one looks at the picture.
Thanks a lot for sharing not just this and all your finds but also for your knowledge and understanding of the wild world.
