Hallo Robert
This is really a beautiful photo, with lots of striking colours and clear details. The mallard with its streched out wings displays beautifully against the grassy as background which is an ideal backdrop as well as frame around the butterfly.

This butterfly in your image is indeed a beauty with clear markings and striking dark colours. It displays beautifully against the sandy surface which is an ideal backdrop as well as frame around the butterfly.

I honestly think that your photos deserve more credit but because you do not frequently write critiques (only 2 since 2011 and 8 since you joined Trek Nature), your images are passed by without the necessary acknowledgement of your good work. Please try to visit more memberís photos as well and you will see a difference in the amount of views on your postings.

I am sure you as photographer (as per your intro) would appreciate more positive feedback on your photos.

Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
