Hi Milos.
What a brilliant reproduction of this beautiful moth. Amazing details and sharpness of the image, vivid colours and wonderful pictured scene at whole. Fantastic light and BG. Last one is simply perfect and impressive. Bravo. Next refined work by you, my dear friend.

Excelentes enfoque y composición. Colores ligeramente subidos pero bellos , ayudando así a reconocer mejor a la especie. Muy bonita. Saludos Milos.

Hi Milos,

Beautiful moth and a beautiful picture. The colors, patterns and shape of this one are magnificent. Looks marvelous on the green leaf and the green background.


La prise de vue est impeccable, rien ŕ dire.
Bonne journée.

Lovely color contrasts... and the details are wonderful. I like the diagonal composition. Some day I will figure out how to get butterflies and moths to sit still long enough for me to find a correct camera setting.. ;-]

TFS, Mish

Great colors! The colors are so rich and well saturated. The exposure is perfect to show the subtle color changes of many shades of brown and tan. Outstanding focus with very nice details and fine edges.
Best Wishes,

Superbe, composition magnique et détails précis.

Hi Milos,
Splendid shot of this beautiful moth. Such lovely colours and patterns on its wings. The image is sharp and the focus is spot-on. I like its upside down pose and the green grass blade acts as a superb BG. Excellent POV and the tone of the shot is marvellous. Very nicely composed. Kudos.
