Hello and good day!

This was almost the last ones found in our area as in these days the weather condition is severely harsh below minus at least 8-10 so this beauty was enjoying the sun's warmth and sweetness of the nectar while I got good chance to preserve it digitally.

Best Wishes

Hi Mushtaq,
A splendid Nature shot of this white butterfly against such a marvelous bokeh BG.
Good use of shallow DOF to get rid of the distructing colorful BG yet producing it in such a glorious bokeh.
A square frame to enhance this composition.
Well done.

Fantastic Bokeh ! Perfect choice of f/4.5 and good timing, this butterfly looks great with a beautiful light through the wings.
It's very nice work with excellent autumn colors.
Best whishes.

Olá Mushtaq,
Applause for the beautiful Bokeh existing in BG.
Nice FP with this beautiful butterfly very well captured.
Great post.

I like the enigmatic (back)light in this floral-cum-butterfly shot, Mushtaq!
Amazing focus and nice contrast to the wonderful bokeh.
The sharpness and POV are well done.
Good work!

Thanks and regards,

Hi Mushtaq,
Beautiful autumn color tones in this photo. Nice bokeh and good strong focus on the butterfly. GOOD WORK ! TFS Julie

Hello Mushtaq,the white butterfly stands out against the varied colours of the bg.The bg is wonderful, with a hint of the flowers, recognisable by their shape and colour, but in a lovely blur.The bg light is beautiful!
Tfs, regards Jean.

Kind Regards,

Hi Mushtaq
wonderful macro captured of this butterfly. Very nice soft bokeh in the background. Great composition and good details. Excellent work. Tfs.

Hi Mushtaq,

The flowers are framing well the butterfly. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the butterfly. The afternoon light is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.

> Ciao Mushtaq,

This is an interesting specimen,
so well captured with the finest texture in the wings!
A composition that is pleasant to look at,
an accurate DoF that isolates the subject well...
I loved the Bg, blurred by the flowers.
