Fantastic shot Heinz. The orage paterns on the wings and the orange flower look great.
Very good DoF and colors.
Very well done.

Heinz, this is a beautiful buterfly and you showed to us perfectly. The effect of wings and flower colours are great. A bit tight at the bottom for my taste. Very nice post. Thanks.

Oh my gosh! This is an absolutely stunning butterfly and capture, Heinz. Wonderful color, detail and lighting. Well composed and excellent BG. Thank you so much.

I like your picture Heinz, great colors and contrast between the flower and the butterfly.
Beautiful sharp close-up. TFS


This is a beautiful photo. The colors are superb, and sharp detail. This is an excellent job!

Butterfly and flower detail is quite good with good contrast between them. The frame is a bit tight, but overall a pleasing image.

This is quite an amazing butterfly, Heinz. I have never seen a butterfly that has wings in that shape, and the colors are beautiful. You did a good job of capturing the irridescence on the wings. Sharp details and great composition too. TFS.

J'aime beaucoup la macro de ce superbe papillon à la forme et aux couleurs inabituelles. Bonne netteté grâce à la profondeur de champ bien adaptée.
Well Done !!! Sorry points later...

Excellent shot Heinz, great colours contrast, good composition and very good details! Nice work, thanks for sharing.

This photo caught my attention because of it's name Kallima, as my daughter's name is Kalina. The lovely soft blue color looks almost like velvet. The orange of the flower looks so beautiful as the background. Well done. Amazing details.

Awesome shot Heinz. Exceptional POV. Very pretty b'fly. I like the different colours on the wings. The blue is beautiful. Very well composed. Great light and tack sharp. Congrats on this superb work :-)
