Hello Anne,
Not a easy target.... Excellent contrast and sharp details. I like the contrast of this yellow-green butterfly against the environment. It is a wonderful specie.
Marius.

Hi Anne,
Well composed and clear image, I don't understand why it's so underrated. Great compo with sharp wings and well mish-mashed, noise free background. Attractive in my opinion, a shot typically done in early spring, when this species is quite common in Europe. Well done.
Thanks, kind regards, László

Liebe Anne,
ein ganz entzückend duftiges Porträt eines Zitronenfaltes beim Besuch einer frischen Blüte des Scharbockskrauts. Wunderbar! Eine Szene, die sich auch bei uns gleich nebenan im Wald derzeit immer wieder bietet, doch sie so einzufangen ist ein ganz seltenes Glück.
Sehe, dass Dein Foto heute gerade ein Jahr schon im Netz steht. So lange habe ich mich hier auf TN also schon nicht mehr umgesehen.
Hoffe Dich wieder gesund und wohlauf und sende Dir und Deinen Lieben die allerbesten Wünsche aus Wien,
Peter
