The temperature was very high and during this hot day, many butterflies were drinking on wet ground. I caught this Iphiclides podalirius with my camera using the built-in flash.

Hej Emmanuel!
Excellent macro picture! Great details, colour and sharpnes. Good work!

Excellent DOF and the colours are awesome. Very good detail.

Excellent job Emmanuel

Hello Emmanuel
This is my beautiful butterfly and if you take a look in my photos you will find some.
I thought that they love only me but I think they love the camera.
The only time to reach them is when the temperature is very high and they are drinking water.
Don't try it another time.
Everything is perfect...colours...details...

Brilliant! Perfect in every detail, a great document of the species' habit of sucking minerals from the ground. Delicious colours. Very well taken. Congratulations! Peter

Just beautiful - but maybe cropped a little too tight?
Regards, Nigel.
