Hello Anne,
Very nice composition in this picture with a Common Blue. Excellent sharp focus and taken in beautiful light and colours.

Hi Anne,

The ethreal light attracted me to this shot, excellent focus and depth of field showing natural colours, the background is a beuatiful compliment to the butterfly.

I hope you now felling a lot better.

Thanks for sharing

Hello Anne,
Nice to see a post from you after a long absence, hope you are doing much better and mending well. This is a lovely presentation of the beautiful Common Blue. Nicely composed while displaying eye pleasing and balanced lighting. Colors are well saturated yet natural and exposure couldn't be any better. Take care Anne and TFS this wonderful photo!

To my utter delight, I just noticed your post, Anne.
Welcome back!
Hope you have recovered well from your mishap.
This is a delightful composition with the little Blue perched up side down.
Thanks and keep posting again.

Hi Anne,
Great image. Excellent detail and focus.
Beautiful Common Blue in splendid sharpness and amazing colors.
Very good composition and nice bokeh and with interesting light.
Regards Jiri.

Hello Anne,
A nice composition. The Common Blue Stands out from the background. The soft sun light is a plus to this picture. JC

Liebe Anne,
eine große Freude, nach Deiner erzwungenen Pause einen neuen Beitrag von Dir zu sehen. Habe mich selbst nun leider auch etliche Monate lang nicht mehr bei TN gemeldet - und dies versäumt.
Ein gestochen scharfes, lebendiges Portrait einer sich behaglich sonnenden Ikarus-Dame hast Du uns hier geliefert: In duftiger Transparenz und feinen verhaltenen Farben, die so kennzeichnend sind für Deinen Stil - eine Freude.
Mit lieben Grüssen,
