Slav Durzan,
another lovely species I havent seen. The orange wings are lively with the black markings around it.
well contrasted with dark background.
The sharpness of the hariy body is lively.


Hi Durzan,
A nice capture of this beautiful Colotis Sp. Good composition and sharp details. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Dostum Mezopotamya Kolotisi'nin ilk karesini yine senden görmüştüm. Yanılmıyorsam o yandandı. Burda ise kanatüstü güzelliği harika bir şekilde gösterilmiş. Ellerine ve emeğine sağlık.
Bi slaven germ.


Hi Dûrzan. Love the diagonal framing with vivid markings on the wings. This one probably escaped the predator like a bird maybe. Well done and thanks for sharing - Jusni

Merhaba Durzan bey,
Değerli bir türün zor bir pozisyonu kanat üstünü çekip bizlerle paylaşmanız çok güzel,emeklerinize sağlık Selamlar,

Hi Durzan.
Brilliant reproduction of colouration and texture of a nice butterfly. I like impressive combination of sunlight and darks, excellent selection of the DOF and as a result level of sharpness and blurriness. Composition of the shot, arrangement of all object into the frame are excellent too. TFS and best wishes.

Hello Durzan,
A typical Durzan-picture, with a fine composition and subtle colors, a well chosen horizontal framing too and wonderful light falling on these so beautifully colored butterfly-wings. Very pleasant!
Kind regards

Hello Dûrzan,
A fine capture of Colotis fausta captured with the wings half open while feeding on a Rubus flower. The Sharpness and DOF are superb against a contrasting neutral BG.
A fine contribution to TN my friend!
Thanks and kind regards,
