Hello Mariana,
A very well done collage showing different views of the Peacock butterfly ion different flowers and from different POV's.
Each image is of high quality.
Thanks and enjoy the rest of your weekend,

Hello Mariana,
Hope life will be good in 2010. This is a fine collection of this beautiful butterfly in various postures, in different settings and on different flowers. I think all the photos have been taken with great care and the results are so fantastic.I know running after these butterflies at times is so difficult. One is desperate and the butterfly does not sit still and one gnashes one teeth and does not know what to do....hahahah...thanks a lot for sharing all this....I appreciate your effort...that is... your running after these butterflies....smile...take care...warmest regards/Abid

Hi Mariana

Wow, what a fabulous collage of this beautiful European Peacock butterfly. The various
angles and poses gives one a wonderful opportunity to thoroughly observe, assess and
appreciate this species. Images of the underwings, overhead shots, side views, and also
some oblique views offer a perfect study of the insect. Each little image is perfect in its
own right; from sharp details, to colour rendition, and even compositional. Brilliant lighting
all over.

Well done and TFS.

A very nice compilation, Mariana, that really shows off your peacock to advantage. Excellent clarity in all the exposures and a good, informative note.

Well done!

hello Mariana,
colors that fascinate in this very good presentation, each photo a small beauty and very fine different photo story!
keep photographing! TFS

Hi Mariana.

A very nice overview of the "dagpauwoog".
It is very colorfull and gives us an view of the behaviour of it.
Very well done and thank you for sharing it.

Hallo Mariana
Once again a collection of beautiful butterflies from your hand and lens. You surely know how to capture these beauties, and this collage is proof thereof. It is really so nice to see the inner and outer side of this Peacock's wings, and one can almost not imagine that it is the same butterfly. The wings on the outside is almost dull and common, whilst on the inside you find and explosion of colour and splendour. Great set of macros, each worthy for appreciation. Thanks for sharing this lovely compilation, each individual image a show piece by itself. Best regards.

Hi Mariana,
it's a joy for the eyes, I like this collage very much. Fantastic colours and this butterfly is so beautiful, thanks, very well done

Hello Mariana,
You become an expert in producing assemblages! This one is particulary colorful, thanks to the striking Inachis Io. You seem to have taken quite a lot of pictures of this butterfly, perched on different flowers. Pleasing posting, indeed.
Kind regards

Hello Mariana,
Congratulations,great collage.

Buna Mariana,
Fantastic collection, very pleasant collage showing one of my favorite butterfly species. Awesome color palette. My favorites (although each photo's effective) are the lower left and one of the upper ones (the peacock on Zinnia elegans). Great work, Madame. Congrats and tfs.
Best regards, László
