[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was lucky to get this beautiful butterfly's open wings.
Also, the diagonal pose helps the compositional issue.
Boosted ISO to 3200 to be able to set a fast speed shutter to avoid the ugly motion blur.
It was late evening, almost dark, so the light is even and there are no harsh shadows at all.

Beautiful butterfly, nice diagonal composition and details

This is simply a beauty, Galder, you managed a wonderful light in this case!

The colors are just marvelous and the butterfly seems to be a fantasy to me, believe me, and that too against such a wonderful bokeh...just Wow!

You got a great focus on its eyes and the wings are well sharped too.

Although the background is a bit noisy due to the high ISO I really love this shot. The butterfly is clear and sharp and the colors are excellent.
Very good POV too...

Cheerzzz, Anneke
