Bonjour Luciano,

La végétation aide à cadrer le papillon. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails du papillon l'Ensanglantée des Renouées. La bonne luminosité fait ressortir les couleurs. Bonne journée.


Hello Luciano,
Beautiful coloured Moth and well captured. Details and DOF are excellent. Although you didn't get such photogenic POV but not bad POV here. Well done.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice WE,

Hi Luciano,
Thanks to your unique light management, fantastic colors and a spectacular photo are what we get here. Good shallow DoF and unbelievable color contrast. Probably the moth could be a little (very little indeed) sharper, otherwise a photo to be proud of.
Kind regards from Ireland, László
