[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [French]
Hi everyone, I'm new to TN and this my first post.

The shot was taken in the Natural Regional Parc of the Vercors, that's in France near Grenoble.

The flower is a Knautia arvensis, quite common in prairies of low and average altitude. I haven't found the name of the insect, if anyone can help that would be great!!

A little bit of workshop was done with Aperture ( Exposure, Levels, Color and sharpening )

Hello Loic
Welcome to TrekNature.
First of all, you've described your image will. It's nice to know where and what your image is. The colours here are bright and vivid. Composition is good and the lighting is nice and soft which brings out the nice detail.
