Hola Anton,
precioso pov,
sensacional macro,
bellos detalles y original encuadre,

great use of light. nice point of view. like it


Hi Anton, really wonderful capture of this beautiful butterfly. I really like the use of a shallow depth of field to not only make the butterfly pop out against the background of mountains and sky, but also to get certain parts of the golden-brown plants in-focus and others out-of-focus. Good use of natural lighting to really illuminate the butterfly the most and excellent detail and clarity. I like the low point of view looking slightly up at the butterfly and flower to make them look big. The brownish plants at the sides of the photo seem to point to the butterfly and there's a whole unity to the shot, strong composition. I might recommend cropping slightly off the right edge though since the butterfly is just a little too close to the center of the shot. And maybe brightening the shot just a tiny bit would help. Otherwise very beautiful. There are so many shots of butterflies and flowers on this site but the more I look at this the more I appreciate all its qualities. TFS!

Hi Anton,

This is simply superb shot. Great composition.



Great colours, and it's a special POV you've taken
Best wishes,

Hi Anton, considering the light very well done. Good colour and perfect detail. I just wish our butterflies were as obliging. TFS,

Many thanks for your comment on ‘In Flight’

Hello Anton,
Great blue sky! Could be Norway any day, hehehe...
Great details in the nice butterfly, colours come with nice clarity...
I like the composition, where you use the sky as background!
Pablo -

Hello Anton - What an unusual angle to show a butterfly! The patterns of its wings as well as the details of the flower are equally fascinating. The light of the setting sun intensifies the colours in a soft manner. Well done! TFS! Cordelia :))
