Hi Ahmet,

This Spotted Butterfly wants to be noticed. What a great and unusual shot! No pretty flowers, no green leaves - nothing but this beauty walking along on the ground. An amazing closeup showing off the lovely colors, textures and beautiful markings. I didn't know it was possible to capture the personality of a butterfly! Love it.

Hi Ahmet,

What a fantastic macro of that skipper! Excellent detail and colors. It's so clear that it looks like someone made a highly detailed model of a skipper and put it there for you to photograph. Very well done! TFS.

Hello Ahmet,

What a special close-up of this butterfly you have made! You have got an excelent DOF so that the whole butterfly is in focus. The image is extremly sharp showing excelent details of the butterfly's body and wings. The POV you have chosen is aslo very good shaowing a fine perspective over the insect. As you have used the light well there are very nice colors and many fine color tones in your photo.

Congratulations,
Cristian

Merhaba Dostum Ahmet,
Dün galiba ben ayrıldıktan sonra yüklemişsin, yeni farkettim. Bu güzel Zıpızıpın inanılmaz detaylı bir karesini sunmuşsun. Bir de çekimde kullandığın ekipman insanı gerçekten şaşırtıyor. Demek ki maharet makinada değil.Yüksek model meraklılarına duyurulur:) Tebrikler dostum.
Hoşçakal.

Bu minik güzeli şimdiye kadar görmemiştim Ahmet, bakış açısıyla, nefis yanal ışıklandırmasıyla, mükemmel netliğinden kaynaklanan detay zenginliğiyle harika bir kompozisyon oluşturmuşsun, kutlarım arkadaşım.

Merhaba Ahmet, gfantastic macro with wonderful skipper, amazing details, great colors and splendid sharpness, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hello Ahmet,
The first think that struck me about this mot is that it has nearly identical markings on its wings to the Porina moth that I posted a few weeks ago.
Of course this is a very different species.
Your photo is very well exposed especially since the sunlight was so bright.
You've done a great job of preserving the crucial detail here.
Great work.
Cheers
Steve

Hallo Ahmet
The details of this Skipper is unbelieveably beautiful. I just love the hairy wings and body. The big black eye is really enormous and lovely to look at. A perfect macro with super sharp focus. The portrait framing on this is excellent and the exposure just great. I am really amazed by its fine beauty and features. This is a great image. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards.
Anna
