Hello Krzysztof,
Pictures of these Hairstreaks are indeed uncommon, especially of this excellent quality. You have made a wonderful portrait with great colour and detail, against a very unobtrusive background. I have put it in my favourites. I would have cropped a bit more off the bottom of the picture myself. Thanks for posting.

Hi Krzysztof,
Very good work. Beautiful butterfly. You managed to capture it very sharp and natural.
I like the high perch in combination with the clear sky as a background.

Hola Krzysztof, un excelente macro, con el motivo bien aislado, una toma con buena definición y detalle, tonos de color naturales y un fondo limpio tonos suaves que hace resaltar más la mariposa. Un saludo

Hello Krzys,
I love Hairstreaks and here you've got a superb capture of the female of the Brown. I like your POV and the light and colours are wonderful and details very sharp. The flower is beautiful too and so is the background. Well done!
TFS and regards, Ulla

hi Krzysztof,
nice image of this hairstreak, good details and colors. could have cropped the bottom a bit for more effect. also the yellow flowers are too many here not adding to the image. did a workshop, hope you don't mind. tfs.

comme je viens de l'ecrire dans ma reponse a votre commentaire,je passe dans votre galerie maintenant car il ne faut pas remettre au lendemain ce que l'on peut faire le jour męme.
les commentaires que vous avez deja accumulés sur cette photo en disent long,bien que finalement par sa qualité il n'y a rien a dire!!!
bonne composition et bonne gestion du blanc en BG.
le papillon est presque totalement dans le champ.

Hello Krzysztof,
thank you for this dedication - with such a great picture of a butterfly which I unfortunately could observe
only once in nature. I expect to see it next times because it appears from the number of this year postings to TN
that it becomes more common and succeeds in spreading.
But before that, I will enjoy your perfect and sharp picture of this species.
Best wishes, Peter

Hello Krzysztof,

You did a very special photo!. Sharpness of the image is very good as DOF is covering the whole insect showing in great details wings texture. Light is falling in such a way on the wings that image gets even more depth. Colors are presented in a very good and natural way.

Thank you for sharing,

Hi Krzysztof.
It is true masterpiece, my friend. Brilliant work of camera, lens and photographer. Bravo. The best butterfly subject. Composition of beautiful butterfly and delicate, so fine flowers on light BG is amazing. Lights, colours, sharpness and details and terrific BG are outstanding. My congratulations.
