[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

This butterfly has bees showed several times on TN, that I don't want to come back on it.
I was looking for a picture to dedicate to Marie-Christine (mariki) who has shown on this site so many unknown and small creatures which she mostly also had identified, which is quite a lot of work!
I would like to say to her a great thank you for her most valuable contributions.

Un grand merci Marie-Christine!

Halo Anne,
genau in dieser freien 'Minute' trifft dein Baumweißlingsbild hier ein. Bei den weißen Flügelflächen
lassen sich deutlich die Oberflächenstrukturen erkennen: Weiß und schwarz sind die schwierigen 'Farben'
für Fotograf(inn)en. Das Problem hast du hier aber belichtungsmäßig perfekt gelöst.
Die hervorblinzelnden Lilatöne bringen etwas Bewegung in den Hintergrund.
Das Bild ist farblich und geometrisch ausgewogen komponiert.
'So ganz nebenbei' ist der Falter auch noch scharf abgebildet.
Schöne Grüße, Peter

Hallo Anne!

Ein feines, zartes Geschenk für Marie-Christine. Das Bild besticht durch den gelungenen Aufbau, insbesondere aber auch durch den wunderbaren Hintergrund mit den Farbtupfern, die ihm Leben verleihen. Hervorragend, wie du die Weisstöne beherrscht hast!

Hello Anne,
You saved a real beauty in your archives here. This is an excellent closed-wing capture of A. crataegi on yarrow flowers. Everything is perfect, the sharpness, the OOF natural BG, the focusing, lighting and composition.
Well done and thanks for sharing what is a text-book illustration of this species.
Bon weekend,

Fabulous image.. Must have my Girlfriend look at this. she does lots of similar shots but i think this is the best i've ever seen...
Well done.

Best wishes,

Bonsoir Anne,

Merci beaucoup pour cette superbe photo, ça me touche beaucoup. La composition est superbe. La photo est techniquement parfaite. Malheureusement je ne suis pas chez moi et l'écran que j'ai ici laisse un peu à désirer.
Merci encore,
Bon week-end,

hello Anne!
This extremely elegant butterfly with embroidered wings,will be well accepted by Marie.
I have not yet met, your capture is well designed with natural colors in to BG
and perfect details of Aporia.

best regards sERGIO

Hi Anne
Perfectly sharp and perfectly exposed photo. Great composition, perfect OOF background Nothing to critique :-)

You are a specialist in this arena and your work with whites is exceptional...an extremely hard colour to work with. If given an assignment to do somethign which contained white..back in the day...I had to have Jane work it up real well in the darkroom. Jane was 30 years ago my main darkroom person..she knows her images and standing here right by me nodding as I type:-)

Hello Anne,

You have shown very well this butterfly. I like the way you rendered the delicate veines of the wings as well as wigs and body texture. Colora have many color tones and are naturaly looking. I like that same color tones can be found on the insect and on the flower it is sitting on.

Thank you for sharing,

Hi Anne. This is a first class close up of this beautiful looking Butterfly which you have taken with sharp focusing and fine detail. Your side POV shows the wing markings so well. TFS,

Hallo Anne
What a most beautiful butterfly. A very striking insect with clearly visible details. You managed to capture this beauty in a lovely pose. I just love the dark coloured "veins" on the wings as it creates some kind of sovereignity. Great focus, sharpness and composition. A definite PPPP – Pretty, perfect, picture photo. The blurred flowers makes a very favourable background and the white flower highlightes the details of the butterfly even better. This is indeed a "ladies" butterfly. Very soft and delicate to the eye. Thanks for this contribution and dedication to Marie (Mariki)
Best regards.

Bonjour Anne
Quel belle composition.J'adore le point de vue et la pause du sujet.L'arrire plan hors focus est sublime.Comme toujours l'image est bien en focus.La lumiere est également exquise.
Merci Michel

Superbe Anne!
La composition et la nettetés sont parfaites. Ce qui n'est pas toujours évident pour le papillon et la plante. La texture est vraiment bien rendue avec les veines en relief. Une photo de 1ère classe et une belle dédicasse pour Marie-Christine! Amitiés,

Ciao Anne,
bellissima composizione con la leggera inclinazione diagonale, eccellenti POV e DOF che mostrano splendidamente le carattestiche di questa meravigliosa farfalla, super la definizione, magnifico il contrasto dei colori del primo piano con lo sfondo che crea un bell'effetto TD.

Hai Anne Gattlen,
Perfect shot of the mariki,very good background with a cool composition.A little more sharpness would have been much better.On the whole a good picture.

Hallo Anne,
