I'm not familiar with butterflies, Jaap, but this image is a little gem. So many sharp details together with tender colors. Interesting to note that the overall white color goes even on the legs and antennae! Very nice post.

Your landscape photography works hand in hand when you shoot macro. This is a work of art. Well done.

Good on jaap i love the orange tips they are so restless making them very hard to get sharp clear captures like here, there are a couple of small over exposed areas on the leading edge of the top wing but the rest is absolutly rocking in its detail, the wings are so white in places it makes it very difficult to get spot on all over. I tend to use single point light metering to try and reduce this this can lead to darker images that require lightening aftewrwards but it does give you all the details I find. This is a lot of writting about a very minor nit, good image TFS.

Fantastic detail,it is realy a pleasure to look at your work again. Here the whites look a bit overexposed, but with such detail, colours and composition everything is forgiven. Thanks a lot Jaap.

Excellent details and sharpness Jaap. I have seen similar other great macro shots from you before and this is no exception. Wonderfull rendition of the critter. My only nit being, the bright spots at the top of the wing. Erg goed gedaan vriend!

Deze is nog gemaakt met het oude toestel Jaap, maar deze mag opnieuw gezien worden, ik kijk steeds met grote bewondering naar de beelden van vlinders, ik heb het reeds gezegd Jaap, ik vind hier altijd de grote Jaap terug hoe deze beetjes in beeld brengt is voor mij gewoon fantastisch.

Great sharpness and details Jaap. Looks very shaggy and fragile. I like it very much.

Yes, Jaap, I like it very much.
Something in me feasts!
You bring me the need to improve myself.
A fantastic post: picture and note.

Pragtige "bottervlieg", en die oranje streep is duidelik sigbaar. Ek is mal oor sy 'wol-jas" wat hy aan het. Komposisie is ook baie goed. En there I did all in my language!

excellent colours and stunningly clear details on this "early" last year's contribution of Anthocharis cardamines at rest, now perfectly fitting into the season again. Very well visible bright yellow and black scales around the veins, appearing greenish from the distance.
Thank you, and best regards,

Although this is one of your much older postings I would like to leave my smiley at it today. This is a bright and eye-catching close-up with lots of colourful features. The focus is sharp and the detail of the butterfly is marvellous. I like the fluffy appearance and the big green eye. The composition is good. The patterns and wings are well displayed and the clarity is great. A real neat shot and well presented. Thanks for sharing.
