Merhaba Seyfi,
wow...this is lovely and lively presentation. The colours and patterns are well seen in excellent details.
congratulations for your anniversary...
Such an excellent presentation to celebrate.
looking forward to seeing more of your lovely capture.


Hallo Seyfi
Congratulations for your 1st year anniversary on the site. Your presence and participation have only but given me endless joy as your butterfly images are unbelievably beautiful just as the one you celebrate your birthday with. The Two-tailed Pasha is a colourful butterfly with an assortment of lovely patterns and markings. The shape of its wings is also very delightful and the colours would do a stained glass window proud. It's a pity we don't have these butterflies in our area, or I'd be out after them everyday. This one is indeed a painters dream. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Seyfi Bey merhaba
güzel kelebek fotoğraflarınızdan birini daha zevkle izliyorum.
birinci yıldönümünüzü de tebrik ederim; nice uzun yıllarda, nice güzel fotoğraflarınızı görmeyi diliyorum.
kutlama için çok güzel bir seçim olmuş, Paşa'nın bu nefis karesi. Workshopdaki de çok güzel. elinize sağlık.
