Bonjour Pierre !
Voilà un papillon magnifique, que je n'avais encore jamais vu ! Et la photo est très réusie, avec d'excellents détails, de jolies couleurs sur les ailes du papillon et une très belle composition. Le papillon ressort très bien sur ce fond sombre. Félicitations !

Hello Pierre,
Seems like you're getting the hang of this!
Great details in this little fellow, pattern in the wings come out well thanks to wise use of flash...
Good colour palette, only minor improvement I can think of is a slightly tighter crop!

Hi Pierre
Beautiful shot and excellent POV with the wings wide open.
I love butterflies in this position
TFS and see you

Hi Pierre. Your macros are very good. This is well presented with excellent clarity and colours. Murray.

Nice capture, Pierre! Great subject with symmetry and details on this shot. I agree with Pablo about the tighter crop. And I think the flash did help, but you might try dialing it down a bit (with my D50 from the "pencil" menu, Option #6 is "flash level" that I usually dial down to -1.0 when there is natural light I am trying to balance. Unfortunately the exact level depends on the distance from the subject. But that is a good starting point for these types of shots.)

Bonjour Pierre
Ce papillon se découpe bien, c'est le cas de le dire, placé ainsi sur le rebord de la feuille.

À la prochaine

Ehi, it's posing for you!
Perfect view, well composed. Did you consider to partially crop the image?



Hi Pierre, beautiful clear shot of this butterfly, very good colour and detail on the butterfly and leaf. It's an interesting composition with the leaf bisecting the frame, and the butterfly hanging on to this leaf.

Thanks, John
