I am not a specialist in the insects but, these butterflies covering this flower gave me the desire for making the photograph

so some know the name and the espéce, I start to improve me in the matter

Great shot! 5*!
Two at the same time!
They are moths not butterflies.
The specie is Euplagia quadripunctaria (Poda, 1761), a very beautiful moth!
Very rare in Portugal!
I never had the oportunity to take a photo of this specie!
Wonderful colors!
Very good details and sharpness!
Go on, take more!

Good close-up of these moths, structures and sharpness are good, colours are nice... Try to place the main object (in this case the moths) a bit off-centre towards one of the edges, this makes the picture even more interesting... Background is well blurred and has a nice colour.
Well done!

Hi Gilbert

Lovely shot. Nice POV. Good light and colours. Well done

Those are fantastic butterflies you captured here, Gilbert! I posted a workshop suggesting a little different composition and adjusting some other things :)

bonjour gilbert
je m'arrete sur cette photo car même si elle n'est pas super nette,j'aime bien ce papillon que j'ai decouvert pour la premiere fois en vacances,je l'ai pris en photo mais je n'avais pas de pied et cela n'a pas donner de bon resultat.il est tres beau lorsqu'il vole.c'etait a charavines sur le bord du lac de paladru,peut etre connaissez vous?

Bonsoir Gilbert
Wonderfu close-up
excellent sharpnes and colours

Bonjour Gilbert, je n'avais pas vu cette jolie photo dans ta galerie, c'est assez rare de voir des écailles chinées en plein jour car ce sont des papillons de nuit, si tu veux plus de renseignement, tu peux aller voir la noote que j'ai mis sur ce site

What a beautiful pair! They look like camouflaged jet fighters. You did an excellent job here! Cheers!
