My first butterfly

There are so many butterfly shots on TN nowadays I decided to post one too.. I'm not a big butterfly fan but am curious if I could take a picture you like.. Also I welcome the ID if you know!

35-70 Nikkor + 2xTC + flash used.

Thanks for viewing,

Hi Andor,
magnificent realization for the first one(night), the general quality is really for the meeting. Excellent neatness, well saturated colors and pov of approach carefully chosen.

Hi Andor,

Wow, what a great macro shot of the butterfly showing sharp details! I must say, a very nice shot for your first butterfly shot. The sharpness and POV are ideal where natural colors are well shown. The flash light works very well here. The contrast between the comparatively light colored butterfly and the bright colored flower, is wonderful. Very well seen!

thanks and regards,
Paras Bhalla

Great shot perfect DOF nice color and i like the dark background.


Hy Andor
Your first butterfly is very sharp , with beautiful details on the wings, eye, also the flower. And I see that you used a flash, so, in this way should looks like a picture taken with the flash. TFS

Szia Andor!
Lepkékben nem vagyok erős, úgyhogy csak tippelem a nagy gyöngyházlepkét. De maga a fotó gyönyörű, midenütt, ahol kell, tűéles, jók a színek, az alulexponált háttér pedig telitalálat. A vakut is jól használtad. Grat a debütáló lepkédhez - ha ilyen az első, milyen lehet majd a többi?! Ez csodaszép.
Baráti üdv, Laci

Hi Baratom Andor,

As a 1st butterlfy you took an awesome macro capture of a fritillary here. You captured it expertly from dorso-lateral POV on a beautiful flower with great colours, perfect exposure and flawless details MF!
TFS and Happy Valentine's day!
