Hi Yiannis,
Very pretty image of a gorgeous butterfly. Its has very nice pink colors and is in a very nice natural setting. We have a butterfly like this in Canada we call it a clouded sulpher.

Εξαιρετική η φωτογραφία σου Γιάννη. Καλή εστίαση και ωραίοι χρωματισμοί.

Good Morning Yiannis,

Firstly welcome to TN file! A nicely done macro of this lovely clouded yellow beauty. Exposure is excellent, good sharpness and nice shallow DOF to blur the background.
TFS and have a nice day!


Καλημέρα Γιάννη,

Hi Yiannis,
Very good light and bright colours. Nice composition.TFS

hello Yiannis interesting shot of this Couded Yellow, like details and composition

Hello yiannis,

Well captured, good focus and beautiful butterfly!
I saw this kind of butterfly firstly.
It is impressive in a yellow wing that a brown spotted pattern and the outside frame are red. And, the contrast between the forground and the background with blurred image draws out a good effect for the whole, I think.


Ciao Yiannis. Low POV i think in difficult light. So very well done! Stunning details and sharp with best colours results.
