Hi Heinz
What a nice photo of Charaxes...
Full of vivid colours and with a great sharpness.
Good DOF and POV showing the side wing of the butterfly.
Good work.

Hi Heinz,

wonderful colour and detail on this magnificent creature, good shot!

The only nit is the upper tip of the wing that falls out of the sharp DOF area. An increased f/stop probably would have done the trick, with a slower shutter speed. As low as 1/60 usually is possible, 1/100 if you want to be on the safe side. Or maybe you tilted the camera slightly and with it the plane of sharp DOF?
Regards,
Gabi

Nice one Heinz,
the composition is very good, the wings upstairs are just a little out of pov, but that nothing to shame, the colours are good, and you did a very good job.

Thank you very much Heinz. Great work!

This is so beautiful! Perfect except for the brown cattail? stick? whatever!

Poor butterfly! Has lost a piece of the wing. But photo is very good. Very colorful and rich in details. Sharp.
