Bonjour SIlvio,

Jolie macro sur ce joli papillon, couleurs et détails, un vrai régal....pour les yeux!!!

Ciao Silvio,

(I remember the word from my trip to Sorrento!)
The focus is perfect, capturing not only the colours and patterns, but also the textures of the wings, body and legs!
I like how the shadow repeats the shape of the butterfly on the leaf!
A great tribute to a friend.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Boa tarde silvio
Muy belo.
My regards

dear Silvio,
this pattern of circles is wonder and artistic.
black rings with white center on orange back, and black and white frill are really fine work of art, of nature.
in my feeling this pattern will match the dress for ladies.
thank you,

The diagonal axis of the blad of grass adds superb graphism. Good sharpness colour & shallow dof on the butterfly or moth & a nice dedication to Linda. Tfs!

Hello Silvio! Very nice shot of this beautiful butterfly, a perfect background and a super sharp macro! Well done, grazie!


Ciao Silvio,

I have never seen a skipper doing "catwalk" :) but today, I am happy to have a glimpse of that :D

The diagonally place straw and the position of the skipper along this axis, makes an interesting composition. Your control on light and depth of field of nicely constrained in this shot. The blurry BG helps the subject to stand out well against itself.

Thanks and regards,

You have the best collection of butterflies! I wish I could photograph more butterflies unfortunately we don't a butterfly near Las Vegas. Great lighting and good dof with sharp details. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
