Bonjour Laurent,
a nicely composed and beautiful picture with respect to light, colours and geometry.
You focused well on the 'interaction' between butterfly and flower and show both with excellent sharpness.
Best wishes, Peter

P.S. In the upper part of the picture, you can see white dot.
Is it a pixel failure? Do you see the dot on your other pictures too?

Hello Laurent,
Very beautiful composition showing both the upper and underside of this lovely Fritillary. Good light and its colours go really well with that of the Thistle. Fine details and I like the smooth background.
Many thanks and regards, Ulla

Bonjour Laurent,
Many thanks for such beautiful pose of the butterfly!

Ciao Laurent, bella Argynnis sopra uno splendido cardo, ottima messa a fuoco con splendido sfondo, un po' poco definiti i dettagli delle ali, hai usato neat image?
Mi piacerebbe vedere l'originale, sono sicuro che è molto più bello, ottima macro comunque, bravo, ciao Silvio

Hi Laurent. I missed this beauty yesterday sorry. I love the way the wings change colour. you have good detail and natural loking colours. with a nice pose on the flower. well done TFS.

Dear Laurent,
a most impressing, outstandingly well composed, very lively presentation of beautiful Pandora. Perfect approach, showing both sides of wings in an ideal way. And I love the thistle's dramatically powerful rhythmical patterns. Thank you!
My best regards,
