Hi Mariana,
What wonderful twins! Nice white flowers with a fancy heart! And what a welcomed visitor to match the perspective. Wonderful white butterfly!
Excellent exposure adorned with good subtle lighting and accurate sharpness.
Very neatly presented.

Dear Mariana
Beautiful flowers, no wonder they also chose the butterfly.
Very nice composition, if it can be called as lepke had to wait until you complete the whole. I feel that I have infinite patience required for such pictures. To do this, congratulations. good work.
Best regards

Hi Mariana,

Very beautiful macro of this splendid flower with butterfly, the flash played a very good role here giving you more depth and sharpness of your subject,the details are fine except for the left incomplete flower,a very good presentation of this white and yellow combination of flower with butterfly.

Have a good day,

Hi Mariana,

A very nice study in white and yellow. This type of photo is difficult to meter, and you've done a fine job. Very sharp and I like the tight framing.

Warm regards,
