Perhaps the image is not sharp as I'd expected but it's obvious that you have a talented eye to see such a good composition. It's neatly and carefully organized. Nice shot.
Well Done & TFS.
Nice macro Nigel woth excellent composition, sharpness and DOF.
I like it a lot: composition, POV, DOF, sharpness, focus, color,framing, lighting, background.
I like it: notes.
I don't like it: nothing.
Only as a game, I made a Workshop eliminating the branch unfocused up to the right... I hope you like it.

Fine presentation of agestis underside, pretty sharp and well composed. The rest is a matter of opnion: more sharpening causes over-sharpening of the already sharp parts. Personally I would remove the smdge of a grass straw to the left but that's also a matter of opnion and taste.
TFS, regards, Ivan

beautiful picture of agestis. Pretty good sharpness on head with palpi and antennae and most parts of he wings. Nice natural colours and good contrast against the blue sky.
Best wishes, Peter

This is a superb shot. The technical aspects are all excellent. The composition is what makes it special. Very unique and well done. It is sharp on my monitor, and I do think Ricardo's workshop helps. Great camera work here, and an artistic eye.

You've made really nice picture. I like especially the composition with the blue sky. Good colours and sharpness. Thanks
another brilliant shot of Aricia agestis, showing the glittering scales of wings, and very well demonstrating the charming lycaenid habit of rubbing its wings against each other in a rotating way at rest, wonder why they are doing that - maybe activating some scenting scales on the surface of the upperside of wings?
Thank you! Best regards,
