Ahhh Ahmedim iyice makrocu oldun. Mükemmel olmuş. Kelebek de güzel olunca ustanın elinde 1 numaraya dönüşmüş. Eline sağlık. Sağlıcakla,
Bu arada başka zaman uğrarım çocukların 2 si hala ordalar 10 gün üreme dönemi kesintisiz in situ izlenecekler. Mehmet de geçici geldi yarın o da tekrar dönüyor. Daha sonraki arazide uğrarım yanına çok sürmez. 20 gün kadar sonra...

Hallo Ahmet
Time is little, but I cannot pass without leaving my comment and appreciation for this beautiful photograph. A most pleasant sight. The soft and smooth colours and patterns of this butterfly are stunning. The arrangement of colours is breathtaking. Good focus and sharp details. I just love the furry body. It is actually difficult to describe the beauty of this butterfly. Perfectly framed and pleasing to the eye. It was lovely to look at.
Kind regards
