Hi Erwin. A very clear well detailed picture of this beautiful butterfy. You have captured very natural colours .and good use of the light. I may have cropped the right hand side a little . well done TFS.

Hello Erwin,

You have done a superb job of capturing the details of this butterfly and its habitat!

Nice, well-saturated colours and a perfectly placed, off-centre focal point!

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Ola Erwin
Bela foto a composição ficou espetacular, a cor da borboleta deu um bonito contraste na foto, a nitidez esta muito boa e os detalhes muito ricos e limpos. A luminosidade esta muito boa.
