Hello Friends,

This time I dediced to dedicate this photo to our friend Foozi Saad (foozi) from Malaysia. Do you know, we both Foozi and me, have the same name in different languages. Our name comes from Arabic (original: Fawzi) and means "my great victory, my salvation, my liberation". Thus I'm posting this special photo to my dear "namesake" Foozi. I hope that he likes.

I took this in my garden again :). This butterfly stands on a plant and looks at me like saying "Hey, don't look at me! This is my plant and my flower! Keep away!"

With my best regards.

Dear Fevzi!

This is a very nice present for our friend Foozi! As far as I am concerned, I have to admit that I have some problems with the dutifulness! I can't help looking again and again at this butterfly! I mean, he also looks at me in a very strong and almost fearful way...


Your picture is superb, you have created a great impact on the viewer with a technically perfect picture.

Many thanks and kind regards

Merhaba Fevzi,
Foozi ne muhteşem bağlılığı.
Bir POV daha normalden daha özel.
Mükemmel detayları ve üst BG.
Birçok regards

Hello Fevzi !
This is a POV we do not get to see very often with butterflies, they look so different. I like all the details on the face, each little hair is pin sharp. The colors are beautiful, as well, standing out nicely against the grey blurred BG. Pleasant composition, too. Very well done !

Salam Akhi Fevzi,
such a wonderful feeling to have this stunning shot as a dedication. My heartfelt thanks and appreciation for such a lovely view of the insect. The stunning eyes are really wonderful. The sharpness and beauty is beyond elaboration of words. The silky white bristles from the flowers are so intricate yet well shown in details.
You have presented it in such an outstanding composition.
Really like it and THANKS again for such a great picture.

Best regards,
Foozi means my victory
Saad means moment

Hi Fevzi
Wonderful macro!
The eyes of this lovely butterfly are fantastic!

Ciao Fevzi. Is it a jewel? Superb DOF and fascinating golden colours. Razor detaisl in FG with intrigant blurred BG. Indeed a special macro shot. What magnificent gift for our friend Foozi!


Açının gücü... diyen nefis bir çalışma
derinlik hayran bıraktı.
Emeğinize sağlık Fevzi Bey selamlar...

Merhaba "Fawzi",

A great shot with nice colors, details & POV. Very nicely taken & presented.

A great gift for the deserving Foozi on TN.

TFS & salam


Hi Fevzi,
An art of composition and an excellent POV, great cut! this is a different and interesting way to see a butterfly! good job!

Fevzi dostum, nefis bir çalışma. Bakış açın çok etkileyici. Gözler hemen ilgi alanı olup çıkmış:) yalan öylemez bunlarınki:) Bana bakın resmen diyor:D "Aynen şöyle: Bana bak! Bana bak! uzak dur çiçemden:d"
Karanlık alan gözümü hiç rahatsız etmedi, bilakis konunun daha ön plana çıkmasına yaradı dersem yeridir. Derinlik hissi çok güzel.
Senin bahçe de bahçe yani.. Ne bahçeymiş bee. Hergün ayrı bir dilber:)
Eline ve emeğine sağlık:)
İyi geceler.


Bonjour Fevzi
C'est une excellent Prise de vue ! La composition est très jolie avec de belles couleurs, grande acuité et détails. Merci pour le partage .
