Hi Rose,

Wonderful photo of this beautiful creature on the daisies. Very sharp with a nice smooth background. My favorite aspect is what looks like some backlighting in the far wing. Very colorful and pleasing composition.

Warm regards,

Hello Rose,

A lovely summer capture with this sharply focussed butterfly feeding from the daisies.
The colours are well saturated, there are nice textural details and the dof is well chosen.
Although an off-centre focal point is usually advocated, I think this one works perfectly.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Superbe macro, j'adore.
