So delicate....so beautiful.


Ciao Silvio,
Finely tuned image with great details and well balanced light.

Hi, Silvio. This certainly is one of the best photos of the butterfly I have seen on recent posts of butterflies. Excellent clarity and the sense of scale with the finger and lighting in this beautiful composition. Well done my friend and thanks for sharing.

Hello Silvio
Very simple but effective image with the hand adding a different look. Nice


Hi Silvio..nice shot...great focus and light...good work.


Excellent sharpness and detail. The dof and colour are lovely.

HI Silvio,

The butterfly is well placed in the frame. The point of view is showing the details and the colors of the Melitaea cinxia butterfly. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice dya.


Bonjour Silvio
Thumbs are the good way to show the scale that is sure, but what is amazing is the way you play perfectly with dof
andthe choice of 1/400 is excellent to avoid to move
Bonne fin de dimanche Silvio

Bom dia Silvio,
Essa sequência de fotos de Melitaea cinxia interagindo com mãos é uma bela ideia e maravilhosa a execução de tal projeto.
Receba meus cumprimentos,
