A fine capture of a Brown Pansy, old but still going strong as it is sunning itself! Fine POV that shows most of its features, including the tatty wings, with good sharpness, colours and lighting in this almost full frame presentation.
Thanks and all the best,

Yes, the buttefly looks a little bit worn out, but the charming poem from Yeats you join to te picture, just makes us look differently to it.
You have chosen a quite difficult angle to take the picture!
We are also so pleased to see a lot of TN-members coming back :-)

Not fresh but very cute specimen has been photographed by you. Shapes of the butterfly wings are very impressive. Lights and colours of the shot as well as sharpness and details are superb. I also like framing of the subject and POV. Well done and TFS.

eh oui ! il parait bien vieux, celui-ci, ces ailes sont tout effritées, mais la photo est superbe prise avec beaucoup de details et un bon angle de vue, les couleurs et la luminosité sont chaleureuses
passe une bonne nuit

Great shot of this ragged warrior Goldy,
I like the prose you've added in your notes here today.
Those words of insight are most apropos :)
Well done my TN friend.

I like the angle on this aging fellow!
Or possibly he has been in a fight...
DoF is accurate and results in good texture and details in the insect while the back is fading out...
Good light renders fine colours, well framed!

The close-up view is showing the details and colors of the butterfly which is wings damaged. It is clear and sharp. It is well framed. The morning light is enhancing the colors of tthe butterfly. Have a nice day.

What a reminder of how fleshly beauty will eventually fade from all, but we can still keep that inner beauty within us throughout our short lives here on earth. Nicely composed with wonderful detail and colors!!

Here is another poem by the Irishman William Butler Yeats... Unwothy Praise:
O HEART, be at peace, because
Nor knave nor dolt can break
What's not for their applause,
Being for a woman's sake.
Enough if the work has seemed,
So did she your strength renew,
A dream that a lion had dreamed
Till the wilderness cried aloud,
A secret between you two,
Between the proud and the proud.
What, still you would have their praise!
But here's a haughtier text,
The labyrinth of her days
That her own strangeness perplexed;
And how what her dreaming gave
Earned slander, ingratitude,
From self-same dolt and knave;
Aye, and worse wrong than these.
Yet she, singing upon her road,
Half lion, half child, is at peace.
This poor butterfly has seen its day of glory.
We cannot praise its beauty any longer.
Loved it, really.
Mario an Indian now living in Canada.
