[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I've always felt I'd never be able to dedicate a shot to these two favs of mine, for the simple reason that I'd perhaps never be able to do them justice with any shot of mine. So now that I am dedicating a shot to this coulple, I've chosen a shot wherein I put in a lot of effort (yes, I'm aware that some of our best shots are effortless!!).
I do hope you like it Ivan and Ulla.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Goldy,
Thank you so much for this kind dedication! A butterfly is always most welcome now that the colder weather has arrived here and most insects are gone. A fine macro in nice colours and from a nice POV showing details of this beautiful butterfly.
Many thanks again and best wishes, Ulla

Hello friend Goldy,

another good macro picture from you with good pov and warm colours.
I like the eye from these butterfly.


Hello Goldy,
a great dedication to our friends Ulla and Ivan; good sharpness with fine detail, IMHO a bit overexposed, a pleasing composition.
Best regards

Hi Goldy,

The close-up view is showing the details and colors of the Common Lime butterfly. It is clear and precise. The subject is well framed. The surrounding light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.
