Hello Yildiz,
the silver metallic appearance of the wing spots is particularly well seen on your picture. Very good point of view and overall composition. Head, thorax and most parts of the wings are presented with pretty good sharpness.
Best wishes, Peter

Hi Yildiz.
I like this shot a lot. I have seen this species at one of your previous shots and should say that the BG is amazing. It is clear the scenery and reproduction of the beautiful butterfly and flower is also great. Shot is framed and composed perfectly. My compliments and TFS.
