Hi Chris,
Neighbors today he he. A nice capture of this beautiful butterfly. Very well composed with sharp details. Thanks a lot for sharing.

This arrangement is so pretty, Krzysztof, excellent sharpness and brilliant colours.
I love the tiny tails at the wings, also saw such a butterfly in Italy but the shot I made isn't good ...
So thanks for yours, very well done, thanks

I like the very delicate colors you have rendered in your photo. I am impressed by the very good hsrpnes you have shown the butterfly with. Colors of flower, insect and background makes a very nice combination.

Thank you for sharing,

Hello Krzysztof,
A wonderful macro of a feamle Cupido argiades taken from a great POV with fine sharpness and well composed on the large red clover flower.
This is a species we don't have in Sweden.
Thanks and best regards,

Hello Krzysztof
The composition is perfect with some lovely tonal hues from the flower and the bg grasses and greens...The only point I would make is perhaps you have over sharpened the subject.
All the Best And TFS

Ciao Krzysztof, wonderful composition with beautiful butterfly and lovely flower, splendid colors, fine details and excellent sharpness, very well done, ciao Silvio
