Heterosais giulia (Hewitson, [1855])

Thanks to Dany friend (dany13) by the correct ID!

Well, I've dusted off an old Olympus SP565 UZ ... Well really I bought it (very cheap) to a friend who never learned how to use it, ha ha ha ... :)

This is my first macro with this camera, I think this do not so good for macros as my beloved Canon SX, but really, I think using it to shoot some birds and landscapes, not macros. So, I hope you forgive the technical shortcomings of this photo, taken almost at night in my garden!

If any of you have similar camera, or know how I can improve the macros with this, then I would appreciate any information provide. (Thanks in advance)!

Thanks by stop and visit!

Hello neighbour Jesus,
In spite of the old camera, a very beautiful photo in nice natural colours and good sharpness. Excellent DOF and composition. You took advantage of the poor light, see the beautiful OOF BG.

Hi Jesus,
I love these glasswings so much, amazing to see them in free nature. I saw some in a butterfly house here in Germany, beautiful.
Your shot is very nice, I love the colours, so fresh and sunny. Excellent details on the butterfly, thanks

Hello Jesus,
A wonderful close up from you.Excellent sharpness,colors and details.Great
POV.Thanks for sharing.Best regards Siggi

Hola Jesús

Que alas más originales, por el brillo que tienen parece de plastico. Que buena imagen de esta mariposa que tampoco conozco, pues si que hay, esta tampoco la había visto. Fantastica.

Un saludo de Antonio

I know this little camera, friend Jesus! Yes it is old indeed, but still can compare with newer machines in some degree. The Dual Image Stabilization probably is the greatest feature and along with (they call it) Shadow Adjustment Technology which recognises dark elements in the frame and adjust accordingly to record the most realistic image possible. So , I am waiting to see your technical skills with it!
Well captured transparency of the butterfly wings, good clarity and dept of field! Bravo, happy job!

Hola Jesus,
These Ithoimiines love shady places and avoid sunlight, so lighting is always a problem. This is made worse by the transparency and refelctivity of the wings. So I think you have done very well here.
I dont know about this Olympus camers at all, so I'm afraid I cannot be of any help. But I like your picture very much.

Una cattura spettacolare,sia come luce che come qualita' dei dettagli e dei colori,la trasparenza delle ali e' davvero eccezzionale...e che bella composizione! I miei piu' grossi complimenti,buona giornata,Luciano

Ciao Jesus. Compo magnifica con eccellente resa graficaa dal meraviglioso disegno delle ali. Una farfalla bellissima. Luce e colori ottimi.


hello Jesus interesting shot of this specie, but i think itsn't Gréta, I think it is probably Hétérosais Giulia ..I'm not sure at 100%
So well done and regards

Creaste un buen ambiente con ese manejo, casi al límite, de la luz; el resultado es sorprendente y efecytivo, ya que no se pierde detalle y además creo que los colores no perdieron fidelidad.
Atractivo formato al igual que en tu anterior trabajo. Excelente.
Gracias por tus amables comentarios Jesús.
Un abrazo: Josep Ignasi.

Geia sou Jesus
A very beautiful photo in colours.Fine focus, sharpness and details.
