Today, we share the same motive (a butterfly perching on flowers) in our posts, Dilshan!

Yours one is a wonderful closeup from this beauty with such superb sharpness and perfect management of light.
The colors are saturated and very natural.
I like the centered placement of the subject within a panoramic frame.
Great Spring atmosphere can be felt in this lovely picture.
Good job.

Enjoy your weekend!

Thanks and regards,

Lovely image of great beauty and technical quality. Great exposure, good lighting and positioning in the photo. Good contrast and depth.

Hi Dilshan
A lovely shot and fruitful endeavor where you must have enjoyed chasing the blue tiger and captured her with wonderful light and saturated colors..the delicate wings are indeed well shown through the light which looks amazing..very well done my friend.
My Best Regards

Hi Dilshan,
A very sharp capture of this Blue Tiger butterfly dealing with this tiny blue flower!
Perfect details on the fully spread wings of the insect! Great lighting and such a neat presentation.
My best regards,
