Hallo Seyfi
Like usual this is a splendid image with a beautiful butterfly as subject. I very much like the colour of the butterfly's wings as it is not a colour that we see often. It is a blend between, yellow, brown and orange with a dash of cream in between. The colour and details is brought out beautifully by the natural sunlight. Pleasant composition and point of view. Thanks for sharing a great macro. Best regards.

A superb photo of this beautiful butterfly.
Excellent detail and light. Wonderful warm colours with nice markings.

Hello Seyfi,
Fine almost pastel colors for this butterfly-picture. We have this species in my country too, but I have seen it very rarely. Interesting horizontal composition( I think a lot of people would have chosen a vertical one).
Kind regarsd

Hola Seyfi.
Great Macro shot. A lot of fine details to admire in this lovely Butterfly. The pose and BG makes it even better.

Hi Seyfi,

The flower is helping to frame the butterfly. The point of view is showing with precision the details and colors of the Ringlet butterfly. The afternoon light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.
