Fair competition ! Spring is the season I like and prefer very much.
Here the nature awakes and the colorless seasons autumn and winter makes place free for all shades of colors.
Like here, a corner of my garden . The flowers and a butterfly as if staying in front of the mirror and asking the famous question : "mirror mirror on my hand, who is the fairest in the land" ?
The eyes on the wings of this beautiful butterfly warns the birds : "Keep away" !
Rekabet ! Hangisi daha güzel. İlkbahar geldi, doğa renklendi. Şile evi'min bahçesinden bir kare. Hani o ünlü masaldaki gibi : "Ayna ayna söyle bana, en güzel kim bu dünyada" ?
Kelebeğin kanadındaki gözler, kuşları caydırıcı görev üstlenmiş !

This is a lovely, square photograph of the butterfly and flowers which shows excellent, sharp details of both.
I like how you have used the shallow dof to give prominence to your subject, setting them against an unobtrusive, blurred b/g. They are, also, set in sunlight with the b/g contrastingly shaded.
Your flowers are osteospermums and I think, but not absolutely certain, that the butterfly is a Spanish Gatekeeper.
Have a great w/e,

Nos photos se ressemblent beaucoup ce matin. J'aime les couleurs de tes fleurs qui font bien ressortir les formes du papillon qui pend l'air en cette très belle journée.

A nice close up picture with the butterfly as subject.
Also the flower cares for extra colour.
Excellent composition, nice presentation too.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend.

Delicate and beautiful, both of the subjects you have here as equally as wonderful as each other. Butterflies are one of those things that are so unique in the world, what would be to me an everyday species is to somebody else a rare oddity. You mention that this type is in your garden, so I guess quite common, but to me its very exotic. Perfectly positioned on the plant, I suspect this little guy wanted his portrait taken :) You did a perfect job.
All the best

bella accoppiata: un fiore ed una farfalle per un ulteriore bel tributo alla primavera che avanza a grandi passi.
Una bella macro nella quale ha un grande impatto il colore che permette di ammirare il coleottero in tutta la magnificenza delle sue ali.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

Hello Mesut, very good macro of this beautiful butterfly on flower, perfectly captured in this beautiful and interesting image, with good sharpness, nice color and light. Excellent and interesting job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good night and good Sunday.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.

Hello dear Mesut,
your garden and the whole area of Sile must be full of treasures at this time of the year. I absolutely love this composition characterized both by naturalness and graphism. There's exquisite sharpness on the main theme and delightful framing by the partial view of other flowers and a deep, contrasting background. The light and the colours are so delicious, the shadows allude to a mysterious garden and are atmospheric. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

Deine diesmalige "Wochenproduktion" ist ein wahrer Augenschmaus. All die Farben - und hier sogar noch ein Schmetterling - haben etwas wunderbar hoffnungsvolles und optimistisches. Richtige Stimmungsaufheller ...
Es ist schon toll, wie Fotos auch Stimmungen übertragen können.

Beautiful shot of this butterfly. Even the very large version shows that you have focus spot on.
Spring is getting to Finland too, but we have more or less nothing green yet. So no spring photos from here for a while. But on the other hand I could be on advantage on showing autumn shots some time next September.

excellente macro de ce papillon qui butine cette jolie fleur (gerbera?); les couleurs du papillon sont aussi superbes
chrislo (4155) 2014-04-06 13:36
This is an attractive close-up with very delicate wing texture and colours, and excellent detail in the butterfly. The image is pin sharp and the depth of field isolates the subject nicely. Well done.

Merhaba Mesut bey,
d5000 kullanıcısı olarak 18-55 ile bu şekilde harika bir fotoğraf çekildiğini görmek beni memnun etti.
genelde böyle kareler makro lenslerden çıkıyor diye biliyordum.
makro tüp kullandınız mı acaba ?

Congratulations for not only capturing the moment when the butterfly is in a perfect position, but also for achieving an very attractive composition overall. Thank you for sharing this uplifting scene.
With best wishes,

we can like pictures for different reasons. This picture is just lovely. Flowers and a butterfly are a winning combination and this flower with this butterfly especially. Great colors and a skillful composition makes it fun to look at this picture.
All the best from the north
