Merhaba Seyfi,
such a lovely butterfly taken in the light that gives a special visual composition. The lines and the details are splendid. The blurry background gives a unique dreamy effect. I like the presentation of the grass too.
Lively and special presentation.

The vegetation is helping to frame the buttefly. The point of view is showing with precision the details and colors of the Marbled Fritillary Butterfly. The late afternoon light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.
