Hi Slavek,

Great macro capture of the adorable brimstone butterfly!
The lemon color of the wings of the butterfly is very well shown with crisp sharpness. The POV is just great. The dark BG is just wonderful and gives great contrast to the light colored butterfly. Very well done!

thanks and regards,
Paras Bhalla

Excellent photo!

Hi Slawek,
I see you are able to do good macro portraits with this small compact camera, the same I have. Perfect light, perfect sharpness. Great job, Slawek.
With my best regards

Siemanko Slawek,
This is a good macro MF. Wings are sharp like a razor-blade, color contrast's very good, so is the composition, background's well blurred. Maybe, with small level adjustment with Photoshop the colors would even be more harsh - otherwise a fascinating image. Congrats and tfs.
Friendly regards, László
