What a crisp shot from a lovely butterfly against a pleasing backdrop, Silvio!

Superb focus on its wing textures and perfect clarity with nice natural colors seen in the scene.
The POV and DOF are excellent, and light is very well managed.
Great job!

Ciao,

Hello Silvio,a lovely sharp macro of the butterfly.The patterns and textures are very clear,and I like that little bit of pink flower that makes a good focal point,as the eyes keep returning to it.
The blurred green bg is a good contrast to the orange wings.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi Silvio,

The leaves are framing well the butterfly. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the Knapweed Fritillary butterfly. The afternoon light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.
