Hi Siegfried,
A very sharp macro of this lovely colorful butterfly.
Good lighting and precise details on its geometrical shaped wings, spread magnificently for us to admire.
A very pleasing to the eye shot with the adaptation of the rule of thirds.
Well seen and neatly presented.
My best regards,

Francis Xavier

Beautiful macro capture from Scarlet peacock butterfly with great details, Siggi!

The sharpness and POV are well done and the DOf is also well managed. The light is controlled nicely here, bringing minute details from this lovely colorful butterfly. The colors are original and the blurry BG gives nice contrast to the subject. Well done!

best greetings,

Hello Siegfried
fantastic macro shot of beautiful and very color full butterfly, good contrast with the BG which make the subject more clear. (IMO) how about some color adjustments, could make it more sharper and even eye catching. cos the red color on the wings.

Congrats & Good job
