nice shot, great detail and colors, well doen

Ciao Chris, fantastic Delias hyparete against a wonderul blurry BG, fine details, excellent sharpness and splendid colors, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Chris.

Thank you for that picture of Delias hyparete.

Good composition and point of view of the photo. The sharpness is very good.
The colors are properly saturated.

With your authorization, a small critic. In my opinion, it will have be better to focus more on the subject, removing part of the right side of the photo.

Anyway this is a great photo.

Thank you for the sharing. See you soon on treknature for other pictures.

All the best.

Hello Chris,
Splendid coloured butterfly in this photo. Together with the flower they are contrasting very beautifully against the dark BG. Great POV and composition.

Hallo Chris
Thanks for sharing, such a colourful and friendly image. Thanks also for your friendship that you share amongst fellow members on the site. This is such an beautiful butterfly, with striking and prominent features, and the selection of colours on the insect is really eye-catching. The tiny and thin antennas is well seen, and the pretty flower rounds of this image to being tops. It was a pleasure to stop by such a beauty. Best regards.

Hi Chris,

Details are clear and sharp.
Thanks for sharing.

Best Regards

Sencillamente maravillosa !!!
