Hello Friends,

I'm going on to share beautiful insects, butterflies. This is second image from the same species but this is male. I took this one in the same place with female one.

Festoons are really beautiful creatures with ornamental pattern wings. But females are more beatiful, unlike males. However, other butterflies look more beatiful than female ones. For example, "Coppers", "Common Blues"... It seemed me strange. Why are the female of Festoon are more beatiful while in other species male ones are more beatiful?

You can find female person here

Hi Fevzi

Great posting - excellent pose and detail - good BG too.


Merhaba Fevzi,
Astonishing capture, with a beautiful light and sharpness on the Festoon and a dark green background... The light seems to come from the butterfly itself! Well done. I wish you a good weekend,

Merhaba Fevzi,
An excellent calibration of the exposure, for archieve perfects details on this butterfly whose wings combine black and white. The background is deep, well suited for contrast. ** Special mention to the composition, among the best of the day! **
TFS, Regards,

Merhaba Fevzi bey, bugün de erkeği ile dönüş yapmışsınız:)
Diyagonal kompozisyon harika oturmuş. Elinize ve emeğinize sağlık. Bu arada fisto nun manası ne? biliyor musunuz?
İyi geceler ve iyi bir hafta sonu diliyorum...

merhaba Fevzi Bey,
bu güzel fisto kelebeğinden bir başka kare görmek ne güzel. yine çok güzel bir fotoğrafla görüntülemişsiniz. renkler, netlik, kadraj; hepsi çok güzel. elinize sağlık.
sanırım iki Fevzi, Malezyada buluşacaksınız. turla mı gidiyorsunuz, bireysel olarak mı?
sağlıcakla kalın, iyi geceler, selamlar.

Hello Fevzi
Wonderful capture of this unknown butterfly for me.
Thanks for sharing

Hi dear Fevzi ,
So nice work.
Great details and nice light.

Hallo Fevzi
I found the statement in your note that females of this specie is more beautiful than males very interesting as that is not something one come across regularly in the animal world. The decorative patterns and markings as well as the soft colours on the wings are really a delight to look at especially with the wings as wide opened as the one in your image. It is an great macro with a pleasant centralized composition, which I like a lot. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Harika bir türün karesini yakalamışsınız Fevzi bey..
renkler,detaylar enfes olmuş.

güzel kanat üzeri fotoğrafı, elinize sağlık Fevzi Bey..
