Uite, cine zicea ca pun eu mugurasi! Pai cu fluturii tai cum ramane pe vremea asta...?

Cel mai mult imi plac: "butterfly neon" si "butterfly strange". Au ceva magic :)

Traveling Hawk said...

Minunati! Am fost acolo dar aparatul meu (si stiinta mea:)) nu permit asemenea poze.

Wind said...

Well, this butterflies has a castle...in Vienna's Imperial Palace! There was hundreds of uncaged butterflies from all over the globe (including the Atlas, with a wing span of 11 inches (30 cm).Wild with tropical foliage and set to a humid 80 degrees year-round they fly around you without fear!

Wind said...

Robert, fluturii din fotografiile astea au un castel...
Zburau in jurul meu se asezau pe aparatul foto...ca in desenele animate din copilarie!
Mi-a ramas in cap sunetul aripilor...
Daca le faci si tu castele mugurilor, ma anunti!

Love the macros -- their legs are amazing as well as the fuzzy heads and chest. Nice capture of the details in their wings. That Vienna palace is on my wish list to visit.

Stunning work you do.

cheers,

Supper frumosi fluturii tai si lumea plina de culori din postul anterior...

joo said...

They are marvellous. I love butterfilies and this place seems to be a must!

J_on_tour@jayzspaze said...

Wind, these are top class with the colours, detail and cropping. There are subliminal contrasting colours coming from the background. It's hard to pick a favourite again but after much thought given to 2,4,6, 7,10 and 13 with a special mention for 9..... mine is number............ sorry, i can't decide !!

Traveling Hawk said...

Trupuri si antene filigranate, ca intr-un desen in penita...culori vii ca niste flori cu aripi...foarte frumos!

Dumitru ( micky65 ) said...

O seara minunata!

Gorgeous, as always. Your artistic talent is amazing. I'm honored that one of my photographs would inspire you to do a drawing. I'd love to see it when you are finished if you feel so inclined to share it. Thank you!
