[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Butterflies love these yellow flowers a lot. Unfortunately I don't know their name. I think they are from the Aster-Family. Sometimes I could observe about 5 different species sitting on them. Here the Polygonia c-album.It looks like a decoration for the flower.

Hello Anne,
Excellent close up,
Very good lighting, sharp and detailed image, very nice colours.

Hello Anne..Lovely capture of a comma but I think a lot of cropping and sharpening could make this an outstanding image..The butterfly has a great POV and has posed perfectly for you. I'll try a workshop and see how I would change it if you dont mind. Well done!

Hello Anne,
Nice shot of the Comma Butterfly on these compositae flowers.
This shot is sharp and shows fine contrast of colours with the grey BG.
TFS, regards, Ivan

Hi Anne.
I like very much this capture.Butterfly has perfect position.Used are very good angle look,nice sharp details on main subject.Pleasant light gives beautiful natural colours.I like composition too,only I think as though butterfly might be more to left and because yellow flowers is there enough so from my opinion smaller cut never mind.See my workshop,if the like.
Well done,excellent shot.
Thanks and regards.
Milos

Hi Anne

This is a very beautiful butterfly captured very nicely here by you.
The POV is excellent - showing it with its wings wide opened, the details are clean and clear and the colors lovely.
Also the composition is great, presenting the butterfly in its natural habitat.
Great work, overall!

Bravo and TFS
Horia

Bonjour,
Belle et harmonieuse composition.
Bonne journée

Bonjour Anne !
Voilá un joli papillon que je n'ai encore jamais pu admirer en vrai - j'apprécie d'autant plus cette photo. Les détails et les couleurs sont magnifiques, tout comme la pose du papillon. Il aurait peut-être fallu couper un peu à gauch et en bas, pour éviter que le papillon ne soit au centre de l'image, mais cela reste une trés belle photo que j'aime beaucoup. Félicitations !
Valerie.

Hi Anne,
A wonderful close up.Colors,clear details and composition are perfect.Nice work!.TFS

Salut Anne
Elle est superbe cette prise de vue avec ce beau macro,les couleurs et la présentation tout est joli. Merci pour ta présentation qui est vraiment spéciale avec ce beau papillon.
Bravo et merci....JP

C-album is my favourite butterfly, Anne, and you have shot this one beautifully.
Ideal point of view that offered you a perfect open-wing stance of the butterfly and the flowers around it.
Great composition!
Ram

Hello Anne,

Colorful and well composed, but the focus seems a little soft. I like the ws by Mikou.

Bonsoir Anne,
Il est superbe ce papillon au milieu de ce bouquet de fleurs.
Les couleurs sont belles, la profondeur de champ est bien vu.
Bonne soirée
Roland

Anne,
ich habe noch nichts gesagt über diese tolle Aufnahme von Dir, aber schon ein paar mal darüber nachgedacht, warum sie eigentlich so gut ist, abgesehen vom schönen Sujet. Heureka, jetzt habe ich etwas gefunden: der Falter ist genau im Fokus, und alle Blumen darunter leicht unscharf, das fügt Perspektive ins Bild. Genial. Mit meinen besten Wünschen zu den Festtagen, auch an Deinen Sohn,
Dietrich

Guten Tag, Anne,
sehr schön komponiertes, stimmungsvolles Wiesenstück mit Falter in sanften, natürlichen Farben. "Robert le diable" ist durch seine Schärfe perfekt aus seiner weich gezeichneten Umgebung herausgehoben. Mit Dank und besten Grüßen,
Peter

Bonjour Anne,
ce papillon est très bien cadré. Depuis que je l'ai découvert près de chez moi, il me plais particulièrement. La forme de ses ailes dentellés et sa couleur de camouflage lorsqu'il ferme les ailes.
Belle captures et la nettetée est très bonne.
Arnaud.

bonjour anne

trés joli ce papillon bravos

Por algún motivo que desconozco, había perdido hasta ahora esta bella composición Anne, con un punto de vista maravilloso, donde las flores tiene tanta importancia dentro de la escena como la mariposa, con apropiada profundidad y foco, realzado por el difuso fondo y la correcta iluminación.
Me gustan los colores captados, intensos pero no saturados innecesariamente.
Mis mejores deseos y Feliz Año Nuevo!.
Ricardo

For some reason that I ignore, it had lost this beautiful composition up to now Anne, with a wonderful point of view, where the flowers have so much importance inside the scene like the butterfly, with appropriate depth and focus, enhanced by the ddiffuse bottom and the correct illumination.
I like captured colors, intense but not saturated unnecessarily.
My best wishes and Happy New Year!.
Ricardo

WOW! Really beautiful and well achieved shot! I love the sharpness, color and composition.
Excellent job.

Your butterfly is amazingly sharp Anne. I think I agree with some of the others about showcasing the butterfly a little more. I think I prefer Milos' version.

Thanks for sharing and all the best to you in 2007!

hello ANE

tres beau travail
amicalement
edith

bonjour anne
je ne sais
pas si quelqu'un vous a informé sur l'espece mais je pense que c'est un "robert le diable ici ,je l'ai photographié alors qu'il allait surement mourrir car il ne s'envolait plus.
je trouve votre cliché tres reussi.
laurent

Hello Anne
I really love the composition of this butterfly among flowers!
colours and DOF are great!
best regards
pedro

Excellent composition Anne
The butterfly inside this garden of yellow flowers look so real
Maybe a closer look to the main theme will be better but the POV here beautiful.
TFS and see you

Hello Anne,
Je suis encore jaloux, un deuxième "Robert le diable" dans votre gallerie et moi tujours zéro ;-)
Il est superbe au milieu des fleus jaunes. Belles couleurs, bonnes netteté et profondeur de champ. Je penche aussi pour un recadrage gauche+bas pour décentrer le beau papillon...
Compliments à ma voisine Suisse.
