Welcome to the wonderful world of slide scanning! I have the same scanner and, with regret, I've given up on it - the results are too disappointing. It's a beautiful butterfly, and I'm sure the original slide is excellent. I've done a quick WS on this to see if I could undo some more of the scan "damage." I hope you approve.

Very nice picture of this butterfly, sufficient sharp and great colors. Thanks, also for your description
I think the quality is pretty good for a scan. The details are very well visible, picture has nice colours too.
This is a real beauty amd your photo shows it well.

Beautiful colors, very good exposure, and perfect POV that show the beautiful pattern in the wings
It is an incredible Picture of a beautiful subject.
I'm glad that I have met another lover of butterflies. I love these wonderful insects no only for their beauty but also for the help that they give to nature.
Keep giving us the pleasure of seeing your pictures.

Stunning markings. I had once tried to show off my painting skills and gl.lued one wing to the canvas while painting the other. Not as easy as it may seem. To reproduce the reflectivity and absorbance of the colors is near impossible. This is nicely posed and set off against the neutral background for maximum effect.

I like to dig deep in portfolios to uncover beautiful photos people most often ignore.
This one is a good example of such a picture. One could say there some problems with DOF (upper right wing OOF), but the colours, fantastic BG makes it a really great contribution.
All the best greetings mf!
Hi, dear Peter.
While you are absent I shall make walk on your gallery. This year also promises to be so busy for me. But now I have made a light rest for me.
I like this species so much and I have few reasons for it. First this species is very beautiful. Second I have met and shoot it near my countryside house with pleasure. And main reason, your first comments were to my first butterfly picture here where I had reproduced just this species.
You have reflected it shapes and colouration perfectly. Dark green BG is great canvas for it. Warm regards and TFS.
