Hi Jeanpaul
Una mariposa "equilibrista".
Bella presentación, con muy buena luz.
También yo desconozco la ID de la mariposa.
Un cordial saludo, JL.

Hi Jean Paul,
I do not know him either, but he is beautiful!
Very nice capture and enjoy spring!

Bonjour JeanPaul,
A beautiful capture!
I like so much your POV and the pose of the insect catched, hangind to the left of the flower like challenging the gravity.
Very good the DOF and the soft background got, that stand up the butterfly.
I like very much the wide compositon made.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Hi Jeanpaul, sorry I don't know id, wonderful butterfly with splendid light and colors, excellent details, very well done, ciao Silvio

Salut JeanPaul,
great shot, the sharpness and details are excellent.
I Like the composition the DOF combined with this POV works very well.
Great colors and excellent lighting.

Hi Jeanpaul,
This is very nice shot. The image is well in focused with perfectly blurred background. This butterfly picture is as good as your bird picture. TFS,

Hi dear jeanpaul ,
very nice shot with great BG.
well composed and beautiful colours.
well done
thanks for sharing
Best wishes

Hi Jeanpaul,
The depth and focus is sure perfect. I like this antennae going straight up like that. I think it is a beautiful setting you found.

Bonjour Jean-Paul,
Nice capture of a Mustard White (Pieris oleracea oleracea), a species closely related to the European Green-veined White (Pieris napi napi).
This interesting POV is captured sharply showing a glimpse of upper and undersides against a pleasing breen blurred BG
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Great capture with fantastic sharpness and a marvellous bg. The point of view offers an aceptable sight of both sides of wings. I love the colors and composition.
Wonderful job, my friend.

Hi JeanPaul

A very beautiful photo from you and a rather different approach - macro :)
I really like the DOF here most of all, that does such a great job in isolating your subject from the BG.
The details are also terrific and the colors everywhere (including the BG) are gorgeous.
A very beautiful composition, too.
Sorry...can't help you with the ID :(

Bravo and TFS

Good to see a butterfly from a bird expert, JP.
From your perspective, you have captured both the sides of the butterfly's wings graphically.
Could it be one from the Whites family?
Superb sharpness, DOF, colors and composition.
Thanks and best regards.
