very nice shot. The composition is excellent and the lighting is very good too. The shadows aren't too distracting but would like to see a few more or none :-)

You know I have a thing about the blue BG's ;-) The butterfly you captured is very beautiful with that red on the wings! Maybe it's common in Poland, but i've never seen it in my country! Upper side is the sky and below of the sky is a blurry long meadows which has nice brown and green mixing! pov is great and the diagonal position of the butterfly remeinded me a gift box ornament! It's really a nice gift to us! That shades didn't distruct my attention and your meadow looks so beautiful! So it made me would like to drink a tea with you on that meadow! ;-)
VERY WELL DONE!

Beautiful composition and a beautiful butterfly too.
Excellent timing with the wings wide open and a great BG that gives points to your theme.

Lovely butterfly. Nicely composed with good light and crisp, clear, sharp details. Excellent saturation of colour. Nice work. Thanks.
This is beautiful, the first thing that struck me is the lovely warm light and the rich saturated colours, just beautiful. Great POV and excellent detail. This is definitely a 'Monika' shot :-) The exposure on the background is excellent too, it looks very warm and the contrasting colours are excellent. And there is that really strange shutter speed again :-) Great shot!

looks like nature has painted this wonderful macro. Beautiful composition, very simple lines and yet a wonderful impact. Great POV and DoF.
What a nice shot for this beautiful butterfly ! Composition, colors, light, BG, DOF and sharpness are very good. Just a strange effect around antenans...
Congratulations Monika and thanks for sharing.

No time for a decent critique today mf,
BUT a well deserved :)
You know Monika, the shots that you and Greg have posted over the years have opened my eyes to Poland. I used to think it was a drab, cold hostile-looking place. Your work shows that there are many beautiful places and many fasinating creatures in you country. Thank you for continuing to enlighten me, perhaps one day I'll have to make the long jouney and see for myself.
Great shot as usual, I don't think I've seen this species before. Composition is wonderful with trademark POV. Keep 'em coming.

Il est superbe ce macro! Composition très belle avec de belles couleurs, et très beaux détails. Il y a un peut d'ombre qui distrait sur le coté droit.
Merci pour le partage .
Au revoir et merci....JP

this is such a nice picture of this butterfly. It really highlights the colours well and the shadow does not detract too much from the b'fly.
the postition of the horizon in this picture was the important part and you got it so very right. If it had been with no sky, it woudl just not have worked at all.

Lovely shot Monika. This low POV is becoming very much your trademark and which you work to great effect. Compositions are always your strength and this is great. The shadows on the butterfly are the only thing from excellence. Well done.
