Arnaud, es una preciosa vista esta mariposa y agradable colorido, la luz es especialmente maravillosa, saludos

Bonita macro Arnaud con excelente nitidez a partir de un muy adecuado DOF y foco.
Me gusta el encuadre y el punto de vista capturados, sólo criticaría la sobre exposición que se percibe sobre todo en la flor... no lo informas en tu EXIF, pero creo que necesitabas reducir la compensación de exposición que controla tu cámara (+/-2).
Realicé un workshop tratando de corregir este efecto.
Un gran saludo... Ricardo

Nice macro Arnaud with excellent sharpness starting from a very appropriate DOF and focus.
I like the framing and the captured point of view, only I would criticize the over exposure that is perceived mainly in the flower... you don't inform it in your EXIF, but I believe that you needed to reduce the Exposure Compensation that controls your camera (+ /-2).
I made a workshop intending to correct this effect... I hope you like it.
Best regards... Ricardo

Gret capture of this very beautiful butterfly!
The poV is excellent, showing all the lovely colors and textures of the underwing and the pose of the subject is great, with his "tongue" out searching for nectar :)
Very nicely done!

Hi Arnaud,

A great butterfly shot with superb details! The composition is great and the colors look natural. Good use of DOF to isolate the subjects. It also enhances the sharpness. Very nice job! Thanks!
