Beautiful shot Luc. I like the diagonal position of the Blue with in the frame. The textures of the bark adds greatly to the overall effect..Very nice!

Très impressionnante composition. Les détails sont tellement clair.
Je suis allée souvent voir cette exposition du Jardin Botanique, c'est toujours fantastique.

Nice capture on this Blue Morpho. I agree with Howard that the texture of the bark really adds to this composition. Hopefully you have another shot of the top of his wings to post. As good as this guy looks, I know the top side color is superb.

Luc, ton image est magnifique: netteté, arrière-plan, profondeur de champ, composition. Tout bon! Je communique avec toi par email au sujet du nom de l'espèce. Merci pour cette superbe réalisation.

An excellent shot Luc.The textures on this butterflys wings look good against this bark.
(please don't feel bad about not doing as many critques as you think you should. I know how hard it is to keep up when you're busy. I think we'd all rather see your wonderful photos than not see them)

Absolutely stunning. This is beautiful! What a great creature and what a great picture. RAZORsharp details and superb colors. Magnificent composition and excellent POV & DOF. No nits whatsoever. :) TFS!

Superbe Luc. La composition, la netteté du sujet et le fond neutre sont très réussis. Les textures sont bien rendues. J'aime beaucoup l'amalgame de tons chauds et l'effet apaisant que ça procure.

Wonderful butterfly! Very sharp details and wonderful colours!
