Excellent POV to show us this butterfly!
It's very good the pose catched, you got lots of details on the wings, even with the slight damage seen on it.
Your choice of DOF was great, it's works pretty well the couple of flowers OOF and the rest of the soft background got.
Felicitacions pour le premier année ici et merci de partager avec nous.

Thank you for all you have done as TN member, your nice pictures, heart comments and wonderful notes. Many happy new photo godsend, friends and encouraging feedbacks.
I like this picture of so cute butterfly. Your POV is very interesting and impressive as well as the scenery full of flowers and green plants. I also like a very nice cropping and butterfly wings at backlight. My best wishes and compliments.

My hearty greetings to you on completing one year on TN as one of its most outstanding members. Your work has been a source of great joy for many like me.
This picture of a butterfly is an apt contribution on this great occasion. The image is very well captured with special emphasis on the face and the upper wing.
All the best as you embark on the second year of your inspiring presence on TN.

la tête est parfaitement focalisée,mais je trouve que la profondeur de champ est assez limité ce qui fait que les ailes sont flou.
belles couleurs et bon POV.

This is a sharp capture with unusual POV of an old and worn Silver- washed Fritillary (Argynnis paphia) on a flower that is very good for attracting butterflies: Hemp Agrimony. Nicely composed against a pleasing BG
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Hi Valerie and "Happy TN day!"
Nice to see you posting again and i hope in this second year to see at least as many photos from you as we've seen in your first year :)
This is a wonderful macro work with an interesing POV, showing this lovely butterfly in a very moody light.
Even if the DOF is very shallow, the focus on the head, eyes and "tongue" are great and the colors are charming.
Very beatuiful note, framing and composition.
Bravo and TFS

Beautiful composition with very nice flowers.I like managed DOF with accurate sharpness on head(debased part wings stayed in blurry BG).Fine colors and good diffused light make this picture very pleasant for eye.Well done!!
TFS and best greetings,Milos.

Bravo pour toutes les photos postées pendant cette année. J'ai moi même actuellement un peu de mal à trouver le temps de consulter et de poster sur ce magnifique site qu'est TN.
Ce papillon est très bien cadré et bien détaillé.
Vivement l'été que l'on puisse à nouveau faire de belles prises de papillons!

Happy Anniversary, its been wonderful seeing your photos.
this is a lovely shot. I like the colors and the composition a lot. Wonderful DOF and beautiful colors. Sharpness, details and the way your subject stands out from the BG is excellent.

A little late, but congratulations with your 1 TN Birthday. You have given us some wonderful photos and became a experienced nature photographer very quickly. I am always enjoying your view on nature and how you are able to come up with original compositions. This is another beautiful photo with wonderful soft colors and light. Excellent details and a perfect composition.

sorry I am a bit late looking at your image, not being able to look into TN very often these days and weeks.
Lively shot with good frontal approach, well focussed.
Due to the condition of that very battered old specimen the image looks a bit pale, maybe contrast and saturation could be slightly increased in postwork.
The butterfly seems to be a Silver Washed Fritillary, Argynnis paphia.
My congratulations to your celebration of 1 year at TN!
With kind regards,
