WOW again, Peter!
What a fantastic capture of the Purple Emperor perfectly tamed on your finger and feeding from it! Ha,ha. I love it!
I didn't know this species could be found in 'Sierra de Guadarrama' I'll have to go round there some day :o)
You gained a magnificent sharp and clear picture with only one hand.
Thank you very much for it and for the excellent note.
Greetings and best wishes

Very beautiful image of this very beautiful butterfly.
Wonderful how it sits on your fingers licking the minerals of it.
Great note, WS and sharpness.
Details and the way the butterfly does stand out against the green and blue colors of the BG are wonderful.
Thanks for sharing.
Warm regards, Harry

Stunning the focus on the butterfly!
I like so much the sharpness and the vivid colours got all over.
Details on the wings are remarkable, what a beauty patterns!
You seems to have an excellent connection with the butterfly, looks so confident on your fingertips!
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,
Hab lange nachgedacht, wie ich es schreiben soll. Eigentlich schätze ich Darstellungen mit Fingerspitzen im Bild gar nicht. Es ist irgendwie ein störendes Element und ich kann mich am Bild nicht so recht erfreuen. Aber beim Durschauen Deiner Workshopfotos hab ich welche gesehen, die auf alle Fälle sehr gelungen sind und Deine Texte sind immer von Topqualität und auf alle Fälle Punkte Wert (Ich denke , es geht Dir ja sowieso nicht um diese). In der Hoffnung, dass Du meine Ehrlickeit nicht zu übel nimmst, schicke ich ein freundliches Lächeln nach Wien..

Hi, dear Peter.
Once again my favorite subject and perfect set of workshops with brilliant note. Landscape of your picture is separate nice shot but as BG for so wonderful butterfly it is fantastic. Brilliant reproduction of all butterfly features. Amazing light, colours and details. Perfect detailed, fine scenery. Bravo. I feel myself near you at this moment. My best wishes and TFS.

Perfect DoF,sharply focused.
Lovely natural colors.
It seems to be a very friendly guy.
Perhaps one of the best finger landings I've seen documented here on TN :)
The emperor is very sharp and clear, with excellent color, DOF & details. I do enjoy how your camera brings in the BG, it works very nicely here..Exemplary note.
Very well done, Thank You.
Good to know the nature of butterflies' kisses! Excellent details, colours, light and composition. Good to see background too!
TFS, José Miguel
Now I'm sure that you are the master of batterflies.
They love you so much. I tried this many times but with little effect.
Excellent shot great POV and a beautiful butterfly on your hand.
The BG is also something magic.Looks like you shot this butterfly in front of a landscape photo
TFS ans see you

Super clear shot. Just the right amount of BG, you can see it but it doesnt detract from the subject. The tongue is a great bit of detail.

Not only a wonderful photo technically but it brings a smile to my face! :) It's always beautiful to see the interaction between man and 'other.' :)
