Bonjour,
C'est ma première photo sur ce site :papillon machaon déployant ses ailes sur des fleurs de lavande. Pas d'objectif macro pour réaliser l'image mais uniquement le zoom 55-200 de canon. J'attends vos critiques avec impatience

Jean Jacques bonjour et bienvenue sur TN, c'est un bon passe temps pour les retraités et pour les autres!! Pour une premiére photo c'est une reussite. Le cadrage est bon ainsi que le piqué. Le flou des lavandes en arriére plan donne beaucoup de relief à cette photo. La petite touche de bleu a l'extrémité des ailes du papillon est la cerise sur le gateau "des lavandes"!! Dans ma liste des favorits et félicitations, Didier.

Hello Jean Jacques!
Very good shot of this beautiful butterfly taken from a POV ensuring the sharpness of both wings. Good exposure and composition. I like the purple flowers surrounding the subject. Good work. Congratulations,
Mark

Hello Jean Jacques,

Welcome to TN! This is a nice place where you can learn a lot about photography and view a lot of beautiful pictures. Enjoy it!
Excellent picture of a superb Swallowtail! The scientific name of this delicate butterfly is Papilio machaon. I posted some pictures of this species on TN where you can find notes and links. Great colors and contrast! Perfect exposure and DOF! The butterfly is very sharp and stands out from the defocused BG! A great work of art! Thank you!

Regards,
Eddie

Bonjour Jean Jacques!

Fantastic photo of this beautifull butterfly. Swallowtail is sharp, detailed and colorfull. Composition with many flowers is splendid! Blurred blue spots on background add some dynamic to your picture. I like it very much!

Hello Jean-Jacques,
that swallowtail in excellent pose is definitely a very good starter. Well focussed, and well set off against a very beautiful background of contrasting blue lavender in a delightfully dynamic rhythmic pattern.
Welcome to TN, and thank you!
Best regards,
Peter
