Hi Goldy . a fine dedication to Francine . You have taken a fine close up of this orange butterfly. Which you have taken with fine detail and bright colours. a good view of the wing markings. Well taken TFS.

Hi Goldy,

I like the fact that human elements are included in the pictures. The background is very special and gives good atmosphere to the photographic plane. I think the F/4 was an excellent decision. The colors are strong and varied. Light is good, very even, well distributed.

Hello Goldy,
Though not the best way to present a butterfly it is a sharp capture and the upperside details of the wings of this Peacock Pansy are clearly seen even though its wings are only less than half open. Nice composition on the bowed flower too.
Nice tribute to our lost friend Francine!
Thanks and all the best,

Hello Goldy,
Excellent details and wonderful colours.
This image has a impressive contrast and a good composition.

Ciao Goldy. Stunning details and brilliant colour here. Good POV to exalt DOF. Exciting light too. Well done.


Namastay Goldy bhaaji!

Great dedication to Francine!

This is a wonderful macro capture of an adorable pancy with wonderful details!
I like the sharpness and POV here with great natural colors. A great contrast can be seen between this golden colored butterfly and green blurry BG.
Splendid work!

best regards,

Excelente efecto óptico conseguido por el ángulo empleado.

Hi Goldy,

This is a stunner, those colours are amazing. Love the POV, perfect exposure, and the OOF wire fence just adds to the overall composition, just wonderful like it very much,

All the best, cheers Rick :)

I hope this both technical and artistic image gives Francine some Amour,. I purpose she has writers block but not being a pro...and she isn't...she speaks from the heart...she may be in one of Quebecs...darker moods naturally.....so you have both done her and all of us a service!

Hello Goldy,

A great capture with brilliant colors, sharpness & details. Very nicely taken & TFS.

Best regards!


Hello Goldy

a good an unusual pov with good details and sharpness.
Fine natural colours.


Hi and Good Morning L'il Bro,

Amazing macro capture of this pretty beauty from an unusual but impressive POV. Great dedication to our friend Francine too.
TFS and have a nice day!


Hallo Goldy
A lovely macro from your lens. What a delight to look at such a beautiful shot, filled with warm and rich colours. The detail captured is great and pleasant to look at and admire. The striking pink and red flower is very beautiful and eye-catching. A fascinating approach. Thanks for sharing this pretty image. Best regards

Hi Goldy,

The leaves are framing well the butterfly. The close-up view is showing with precision the details and colors of the Peacock Pansy butterfly. The intensity of the light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

Great clarity.
Controlled contrasts.
