[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Attacus Atlas (saturniidae) is one of the largest moths in the world, up to 25 cm when wide open.

Its natural area is tropical and subtropical south east asia (india, malaysia, indonesia, south china...). It is also a regular host of butterfly houses in europe, with guaranteed success when young schoolboys and girls visit the place !

This one was shot at Jardinerie Poullain butterfly house, 90 km from Paris.

this is one of the most beautiful picture i have seen.very good composition,good BG.sharpness is amazing.congrats super picture.TFS

Salut Jerome,
Très belle macro de ce papillon. Le fait que le fond est noir fait bien ressortir les détails des ailles. Le cadrage est bien fait. Merci du partage.

great macro with the wings open. nice colors--great black background--and good focus

Hi Jerome,
Lovely pic. Great colours and the leaf makes for good contrast. TFS.

Más que una mariposa parece un cuadro de estilo "Rococó" ... Has captado bien los colores difuminados y la gran belleza del insecto. Buenos contrastes de verde y negro y también el encuadre. Foto para Mational Geographic!! Saludos Jerome.
Pd.- Te vas a hartar de puntos jajajaja

Hi Jerome,
What better way to show this beautiful moth that has spectacular details and colors. A really nice exosure and the dark background leaves center stage for the star. :)

Absolutely gorgeous, Jerome.
The colors are fantastic.

The moth's beautiful designs show off well against the dark BG.

Bonjour Jérome,
Waouh ! Quel impressionnant papillon, 25cm cela me semble incroyable, mon Sphinx de 12cm me paraissait grand avant ;-)
Beau cliché, bien net avec de belles couleurs et un bon contraste sur le fond noir.
Bravo et merci pour le partage.

bonjour jerome
en voyant l'image je me suis dit,ce papillon n'existe pas en ile de france a l'etat sauvage ou alors je l'aurais deja vu!
mais a parcourir la note cela devient plus evident.
enfin en tout cas la photo est extra et le papillon superbe.

Beautiful image of one of the most beautiful and largest moths.
Wonderful colors, lighting and contrast between the butterfly and the dark colored BG.
Composition is very well done.
Best regards and have a nice weekend, Harry

Beautiful photo with perfect lighting and sharpness. I ran it through a workshop just to see what it might look like without the leaf. I concluded that it didn't look any better. Actually, when comparing the two photos, the leaf adds more character to the composition. Congratulations.

perfect pic, TFS Ori
