Hi Mario,

The colors and the lines in this photo are great.
I also like the splendid contrast and greenish background.
Well done and TFS.


Hi Mario,
delightful clear presentation.
Perfect describing shot, and a piece of art as well.
Combination of colours very well chosen.
The bluish green leave provides a very effective simultaneous contrast to the rich red hues of the lacewing.
Very good work. Thank you!
Best regards,

Hello Mario , wooouw what a nice colours , composition

Greeting Teunie ,TFS .

Hi my friend,
It's a busy life around here; now and then I manage to steal 15 min. for a quick look over TN, reward people with a smiley for the good stuff.

Regards, Petru

Hi Mario,

You did well with the capture and details.
The diagonal line is strong, it battles the right corner. It's saying to me, to bring it down horizontaly.


Hi Mario

You been looking at my hard drive? :-).... I have a photo of one of these to upload too.... We don't have a huge variety of butterfiles either in the wild, or, at our two tropical butterfly houses, therefore, I have many the same as you have uploaded, so forgive me when I post something the same... I am not copying you, just have what I have...

This is a really nice shot. Very good saturation of colours. Lovely POV and nicely composed. A pleasure to view! :-)

most prominent properties of this work are graphism and colour....
diagonals are superb..
very very well done..

Hi Mario,
Superb shot!. I love this intense colors and beautiful wings design. the composition is great.

Wonderful butterfly!
Very vibrant colours!
Excellent on details!
Excellent DOF!
Very good POV and BG!
Keep on going and TFS!

Hi Mario,
What a great colors and patterns. I like the diagonal line of the grass. The sharpness is excellent again and the DOF is perfect.
How many shots did you make at the Montreal Botanical Garden?

Hi Mario
Very good butterfly. Nice DOF and POV. You managed the to take good composition and the colors are perfect. The species is very attractive and it has show nicely on film. I did not like the disturbances on the Background, and on the right side. If you remove those, this looks more beautiful.

Hi Mario,
The colors in this are very beautiful. Very good detail. He really stands out against that nic green OOF backround. Excellent!

Salut Mario!

Superbe ce papillon. Le contrast de couleur avec le fond fonctionne à merveille. Le papillon est d'une netteté exceptionnelle et l'exposition sous un lumière douce est très bien réussie. La composition est bien équilibrée et j'aime bien le fond flou ainsi que que la diagonale que forme le brin d'herbe.

Bravo pour cette belle réussite.

Hi Mario,
Very good closu-up.
Nice DOF, composition and framing.

This is a really splendid shot of a beautiful butterfly! The composition is great, colors are brilliant and warm and the details are sharp! The BG is very nicely defocused which makes the subject stand out perfectly! Congratulations and TFS!
