Great image of Sooty Copper, Peter.
The details and colours are marvellous.
The angle of exposure creates a powerful composition with the butterfly perched on a shapely blade of grass.
Thanks for sharing this beauty and best regards.

Hi, dear Peter.
I am impressed with shooting distance (I have remembered your comments very well.) When I had only one macro lens with minimal focusing distance 15 cm the process of shooting was really a kind of sport. Later I have began to prefer another distance, significantly more longer. It so difficult to come so close to tiny butterfly. You have done it skillfully. And the result is so impressive. Details of your butterfly pictures the most amazing among TN gallery. I don't speak about composition, lights and colours. These components at your shots are breathtaking. My heart wishes and regards.

An excellent shot on this Sooty Cooper. There little guys are far more work to get a good shot of them. Great job here. Well composed and framed. Spot on exposure has the colors and detail looking amazing.

I don't know how you do it, but you amaze me every time I open your pictures!
It's so good the lighting, POV and superb details got on the buterfly and the leaves around.
The artistic quality it's so enjoyable.
You really mastered the Sony H5.
My compliments and thanks for share it.
Wir mussten ja ziemlich gedulden um den schönen Bläuling zu sehen! Aber so eine reichhaltige Post braucht Zeit. Ein typisches "Stoeckl_Bild" ,würde ich sagen. Deine Handschrift ist offenbar. Ich muss die Qualitäten nicht mehr unterstreichen, sie sind evident. Ich möchte nur noch danken für all die Auskünfte und Workshopbilder über diesen Braunen Feuerfalter. Besser als in jedem Schmetterlingsbuch.
Herzliche Grüsse nach Wien

What I can say? maybe: again the splendi picture of butterfly? Maybe: another great lesson of entomology with special regards to Lepidoptera? Maybe: great shot from the technical point of view? Or - the best - all these thing in one time :) Once again you prooved that macro photography is not only your passion but also a profession :)
My friendly regards,

diese kleinen Kerlchen sind wunderschön - ich hatte auch das Glück einen am Gardasee zu sehen. Die blauen Härchen sind so wuschelig und die Pose mit den geöffneten Flügeln sehr hübsch, vielen Dank und Gruß
