Hi Peter,

A well taken shot of this beautiful butterfly. Good focus showing fine details and natural colours.
TFS regards Bill

Hallo Peter
Beautiful and sharp detail captured on this Satyrus ferula. Colours display beautifully against the grasses as your backdrop. Its body fascinate me as it reminds me of the white-ant's body. I also like the golden markings on the wings and it almost looks as if lights are shining in from behind. A great macro which is presented in a lovely manner. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hello Peter,
A really lovely capture of the Great Sooty Satyr with wide open wings. The details are very sharp and the colours beautiful. I like the contrasting background very much too.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Lieber peter,
Von grosser Schlichtheit und Feinheit ist dieses Bild! Da hat sich ein Schmetterling wieder von seiner besten Seite gezeigt und Du hast es perfekt übertragen. Mir gefallen speziell das Zusammenspiel der Farben. Ich konnte Satyrus ferula nie mit ganz geöffneten Flügeln sehen, eher mit geschlossenen, wie auf meinem letzten Bild. Aber eindrücklich sind sie diese Schmetterlinge!
Ein schönes Wochenende Dir und Deiner Familie
Herzlich grüsst

Hi Peter

Hello again Peter friend,
See what I said? ... You and your E1 are a great duo! ... As Luke and R2-D2 in Star Wars! ha ha ha ! :)
Good work, a tremendous close-up, perfectly detailed and with accurate light. A picture brilliantly efficient to observe the species.
The force be with you! :)
Regards, TFS, Jesús
