Amazing mymetism, Monika ! Same ideea like the "stick insect" or the "algae sea horse" ... TFS
And I forgive the "sticky" fingers!

I don't think this image has a 'gloomy mood' at all. It's stunning, such detail. I could never take an image like this using one hand!
A great image, incredibly sharp, excellent pov.
Well done and thanks for sharing.

Excellent capture Monika.
Very nice colours, well blurred background and wonderful colours. The dof/sharpness is perfect setting the butterfly off nicely and showing plenty of details. Very good composition.
Monica, I think the light has improved this picture in some ways. I have never seen the fine texture of the wings brought out so nicely in a directly sunlit shot of this species, and here it is very interesting. I always think that the antennae of this species look very strange - on most butterflies they are fine, delicate things. On this one, they look very thick - most odd! I expect it was trying to find somewhere safe to hibernate. They are "programmed" to find evergreen vegetation for hibernation - maybe you were wearing the right colour?

Monika, I like the gloomy mood. The point is I like dark photos :-)
Excellent sharpness, which is great, since one must consider you used only one of the hands.
Great pov and composition. Very nice details.
