bonjour a tous.
je continu dans les papillons avec ce petit mars changeant,comme son nom l'indique plus ou moins ses couleurs changent suivant comme on le regarde par rapport au soleil. comme vous pouvez le voir sur la photo l'aile droite n'est pas bleue car le soleil ne l'eclaire pas de la même maniere que sur le reste.
bien sur le point de vue n'est pas extra mais je l'ai photographié dans un champ de fraises et je ne pouvais pas me mettre a ras du sol,je tenais meanmoins a vous le montrer pour sa particularité de changement de couleurs et aussi parce que je ne crois pas l'avoir deja vu sur TN.
j'espere qu'il vous plaira.

Bonsoir Laurent,
Alors en cherchant des fraises on tombe sur ce magnifique papillon: tu en as de la chance. Ce papillon me semble être plutôt le Petit Mars, car il y a autour du grand point sombre de l'aile supérieure une auréole orange que le Grand Mars n'a pas. Enfin les spécialistes te diront. Tu peux comparer avec celui de Peter Stoeckl qu'il a presenté récemment. Petit ou grand il est superbement photographié.
Amitiés
Anne

Hi Laurent.
Pictured butterfly and your shot are simply wonderful. I like its fantastic of beautifulness colours, outstanding composition and great details. That is why I allow me some thoughts. At your framing (when as BG remote leaf is) you could use flash boldly not being afraid of a dark background and apply a bit smaller f-number. In this case nearest leaf would be in focus (sharp) at whole as well as the tail of the butterfly. I usually take few photos and use various technique (when I have such opportunity). My best regards and BRAVO.
