Bonsoir Anne,
Les douces teintes de cet Argus sont admirablement restituées. On dirait qu'il est en soie et les détails de sa tête et de ses pattes sont impressionnants. Très belle composition et arrière-plan qui met bien en valeur le sujet. Bravo! Bonne soirée,
Catherine

Ciao Anne, elegant butterfly on a beautiful flower, lovely blurry BG, superb macro with fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, ciao Silvio

Dear Anne
An excellent macro, very clearly presenting the details of butterfly wings.
Best regards,
Oana

The creature almost looks like it is floating above the flora. Gives it an ethereal quality. Super sharp! 1/640 is a great speed for this kind of shot.

Liebe Anne,
der ist SPITZE! Trotz des - so vermute ich - starken Sonnenlichts perfekt belichtet.
Dazu kommt noch die großartige Schärfe: die Hinterflügelfransen kann man
fast fühlen!
Schöne Grüße, Peter

Very good Anne! Every element in this frame looks in its place! Very good!

Salut Anne,c'est vraiment super cette photo,sans doute une parmi les meilleures de ta saison.C'est un petit papillon tres difficile a capturer si bien,sois pour les dimensions,sois pour les couleurs tres claires,il faut faire un parfait "white balance" pour avoir une excellent resultat comme le tien.Mes compliments et bonne semaine,LUCIANO

Hello Anne,
Fantastic shot. Very nice natural colours and razor sharp details.
Exceptional composition.

Liebe Anne!

Die Silberdistel und der Silbergrüne Bläuling - ein wunderbares Paar, sehr gut fotografiert mit dem Akzent auf der Harmonie in der Farbgebung. Die Schärfe ist ebenfalls sehr gut und zeichnet feine Details. Ein angenehm zu betrachtendes Bild...

As liebs Grüessli

Markus

Nicely composed and executed, Ann. That relatively wide aperture gives you good DOF control and the fast shutter speed freezes the motion effectively. A concise, useful note and a crisp, clear presentation. Well done.

Hi Anne,
Excellent photo, very nice colors and fine and sharp details, TFS!

Liebe Anne,

besser geht es gar nicht, Anne! Der diffuse Lichteinfall von senkrecht oben,, die Schärfe auf dem strikt parallel zur Kamera gezeigten Flügel, der farblich gut abgestimmte Blütenstand, der neutrale Hintergrund, das ist Photographie vom Feinsten.

Ich habe immer noch kein Makroobjektiv (es ist in Revision), deshalb kann ich keinen Vorschlag für eine Herbst- Exkursion machen.

Danke für den Kommentar zum Schnäggli!

Herzlich grüsst Dich
Dieter

Hello Anne
les couleurs de la fleur ressemblent aux couleurs du papillon, les fines pétales ont eux aussi des reflets argentés sous le soleil,
les details de la tête et des pattes sont vraiment excellents
Passe une bonne nuit
