Hello Alina,
beautifully composed and nice colours. The background is optimal to show the
outlines and colouration of the butterfly as well as the details of the plant structures.
You focused precisely from an well selected point of view and achieved superb sharpness.

Witaj Alino,
Zjawiskowy jest ten mały motylek. Kolory niesamowite: delikatne brązy i beże w połączeniu z rozjaśnionym turkusem, i do tego świetnie maskujące tło.
Pozdrawiam serdecznie,
