Hallo Peter,
Du scheinst also jetzt in Indien zu sein und schon hast Du diesen schönen Schmetterling gesehen, der einigen von unseren indischen Fotografen präsentierten Schmetterlingen ähnelt. Aber eben, vielleicht ist es noch eine andere Spezies.
Gute Bildschärfe auf den Flügeln, auf den Augen könnte sie ein bisschen stärker sein.
Wünsche Dir ein angenehmes Wochenende
Herzlich grüsst

Ciao Peter, splendid Pieridae, I never see before, thanks, on a beautiful flower, splendid sharpness, fine details and wonderful natural colors, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hi Peter,

A very well captured Aurema, definition and color fastness is excellent. I like the pose, the angle of capture and the decision to the composition. Excellent note, compact but useful.

Hello Peter,
I see this photo comes from North India. Last year I also want to go there with other photographers, but the trip was canceled. But some day...
Fantastic butterfly in great sharpness, details, beautiful colours, good POV and OOF BG.
