this small tortoiseshell (aglais urticae) was taken late last summer on this flower. they are just reappearing now from hibernation. I did a tight crop on this one to make a better presentation of it.

Hi Sue,
Why did you chose such a frame.
I think it is taking away from the subject.
Nice colors and details otherwise.

Hi Sue, this is the second Tortoise shell I am seeing today. Your picture has come out pretty sharp and vivid. Good work.

The pic I was mentioning is at: http://www.treknature.com/gallery/Europe/Sweden/photo102259.htm

Enjoy viewing.

Good work, TFS, Regards, Kiran

Hi sue,

A nice composition with a nice frame,well capture with good colors and sharpness,regards and TFS


Hi Sue.
Sooo colourful! great detail. A superb close up. Well done.
Regards, Steve.

Hi Sue,
I think your picture is quite artistic and great and that it probably would come out very nice as a print rather than as a screen presentation; personally I don't think we have to feel obliged to fill the 800x800 px frame unconditionally but can use optimal px-measures adapted to our particular purpose. Since you yourself have experimented with cropping it in WS, I felt like playing that game too and did another WS with some more saturation of colours and more sharpening too (hope you don't mind). But, as I said, your first pic will certainly be beautiful as a kind of miniature when printed in full resolution.
With best regards,
