Hallo Heinz,
also der ist absolute Spitze, eine geniale Perspektive. Diese Farben stechen sofort ins Auge. Herrlich scharfe Details; der tolle Schaerfeverlaufh ebt den Schmeterling wunderbar vom Hintergrund hervor. Klasse Bildaufbau und auch schoen umrahmt. Das geht auf meine Favoritenliste. Danke fuer die herrliche Aufnahme.

What an awe-inspiring perspective! The butterfly seems to look down at you from a high perch like some creature from another planet.
Very impressive capture from the point of view of DOF, sharpness and colours.
Thanks for sharing, Heinz.

This is a rather unusual POV, Heinz, and I really like the backlit wings. They look like stained glass windows to me. Beautiful colors and light. TFs. : )

You keep on doing it Heinz.
What a beautiful batterfly and a great composition.
Perfect colors an BG.

Hi Heinz,
I really loves you butterflies, I hope I can shot some soon.
Today I saw the first one, a "Aglais urticae" and a couple of flies. Even crocus and snowdrops even the it's a lot of snow left.
The backlight is very nice, good details and well exposed.
Good composition and POV.
Very well done, my friend.

Wow, so ein Bild ist mein Traum!
Dieser Kontakt von Auge zu Auge und das Licht scheint so wunderschön durch die Flügel, sie wirken so transparent. Einfach spitzenklasse, Danke schön
