Merhaba Volkan, transparan kanatlı dişiyi çok güzel, tam da iş başında yakalamışsın. Ellerine sağlık.


Selamlar volkan bey,
harika bir çalışma olmuş.
tam beslenme anı.
En güzel dileklerimle,

Merhaba Volkan,
I was happy to see this beautiful butterfly for the first time last summer in Turkey. Did you noticed the sexual dimorphism? Yours is a female with brown veins. Males are completely white. Well done! Selamlar,

Hi Volkan,

The butterfly is well placed in the frame. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the aporia Crataegi butterfly. It is sharp and clear. The light is enhancing the colors. have a nice day.
