Hi Peter.
First-class close-up of a wonderful subject. Beautiful butterfly is reproduced amazingly. Colours, sharpness, details are ultimate. I like a bit blurred petals on the FG, They decorate the scene a lot as well as neutral green smooth BG. My compliments and TFS.

Lieber Peter,
Welch gute Ueberraschung! Ich habe diesen Schmetterling noch nie gesehen und Du hast ihn so lange in Deinem Bildarchiv versteckt!!
Farblich apartes Bild und der Schmetterling guckt so hübsch hinter den gelben Blüten hervor. Beste Bildschärfe auch. Bravo!
Hab ihn natürlich in mein Thema der Schweizer Schmetterlinge eingereiht.
Herzlich grüsst
