[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Parfois on a la chance de pouvoir capter un couple en plein vol.
Ainsi, on peut remarquer les tâches noires sur les ailes postérieures, des 2 cotés en même temps.
La Mélitée du plantain : vue de dessus

Bonsoir Laurent,

Très belle photo de ce couple de papillon. Excellente netteté. Je trouve déjà difficile d'arriver à photographier un papillon au repos, alors deux en vol ! Très bonne composition et splendide couleurs.
Bonne soirée,
Mariki

Bonjour Laurent,
superb picture of in-flight-cinxia!
In spite of large aperture, you captured both with pretty good focus and sharpness.

Bonjour Laurent!

C'st une image surprenante, en effet. L'effet de flou augmente l'intérêt de l'image et les papillons semblent voler dans l'espace. Bien vu!

Hi Laurent,
Wonderful shot of these beautiful butterflies playing the courting game. Very impressive sharpness and colours and you have done a very skillful job here. This is a very difficult thing to achive and you make it look so easy. Superb lighting and a precise DOF isolates the duo from the BG nicely. Excellent POV and composition. Kudos.
TFS.

Hallo Laurent
Time is rather limited at the moment, but I could not pass without leaving a few words of appreciation for your posting. This is a lovely image and you have managed to capture these two butterflies in interesting action motions. It looks as if they are performing acrobatic moves in the air. Especially the one on the left hand side of the scene. The pink blurred out flowers in the background reminds me of candy floss and creates a lovely back drop. The details of the patterns on the wings are well displayed, here especially the butterfly on the right hand, and this one in particular looks as if it is preparing to do some kind of landing. Lovely presentation.
Kind regards.
Anna

Bonjour Laurent,
J'arrive un peu tard pour commenter cette photo spectaculaire. Tout est réussi : instant très rare de deux papillons en parade, magnifique couleur des sujets, lumière latérale très agréable, fond de centranthes éclatant, et en plus, bons focus et profondeur de champs. Un must dans ta galerie !
Amicalement

Hi Laurent,

Excellent photo. I like it. I like the composition, the colours and emotions (the feeling). Bravo.
