Salut, Thierry!

Wow, what a great shot!
Simply wonderful control on sharpness with nice POV and DOF, beautiful colors and great background. The way of presenting the picture is very nice indeed. Well done!

Thanks for sharing.

Great dynamic shot (due to the striped background) I am sure there really wasn't any wind or this shot would have been blurred at 1/125. Well done!

Hello Thierry,

Smart photography! Congrats for the shot, that is not easy as it seems so. These are very small butterflies and very agile. Hats off for your efforts.
