Hello Jozsef,
It looks like a gigant butterfly, but when I read your note, it's only 6-7 cm. Excellent sharpness, details and beautiful colours. Unusual POV. Good composition.

Hello Jozsef,
Lucky you to have seen and to have had the opportunity to take a picture..I still run after this butterfly-species! I suppose that after one shot, your butterfly was away..
Kind regards

Buna Jozsef
Te-ai apropiat foarte tare de acest fluture, reusind niste detalii incredibile. Eu nu am reusit un astfel de portret.
Numai bine,
