hello has all.
I arrive finally has to approach the butterflies but that remains a exercise of patience. those of my area do not have the beautiful colors only one those which one sees on the site but it one favours it food in freedom.
The Vulcan
Vanessa atalanta
Vanesse Vulcan, the Admiral.
the Vulcan, it is one of the rare butterflies to dare to put its nose outside when it rains (not too nevertheless). Large traveller, it seldom spends the winter to the north of the Alps. One finds it in almost all the mediums, even downtown it is not rare. At the end of the summer one can see it in group, accompanied by Frelons, Abeilles and Wasps, in the orchards, attracted by the odor of the spoiled fruits. If it is disturbed it flies away but frequently returns to the starting point (I do not advise you to make the same thing with a Frelon…) It is one of the last butterflies that one can observe before the end of the autumn. And the favorite plant of its caterpillar? You guessed: The Nettle.

Excellent picture of a wonderful butterfly with great details! Sharpness is very good and colors look very nice and natural! Very good use of DOF! Composition and POV are also very nice! TFS!


Hello Laurent!
I think you did a really good job with this one. The composition, sharpness and exposure are all very good. I like the colors of both the butterfly and the flower it is sitting on very much. Your patience was well rewarded. Congratulations,

Hi Laurent,
You capture the beautiful patterns in this butterfly very well!
Well composed, DOF spot on, fine natural colours...

Hi, Laurent.
Superb butterfly and composition of your shot. Rich colours and exact details please an eye. I think, it was possible to make hardly more dark a green background. But it is the matter of taste. My compliments.

Hi Laurent,

A very good composition. I like the colours. Well done.


beaucoup plus de détails que sur le premier,super en couleurs comme en prise de vue , le flou de l' arrière plan y est pour beaucoup dans ce chef d' oeuvre
continu a nous faire réver surtout moi de pouvoir en faire autant

Great capture. On focus. Framing okay.
Well done

Hi Laurent,

Its indeed patience that you need a lot to approach them :-)
Great shot of this wonderful butterfly, i like the colors and the composition a lot

Hi Laurent,
This is a really great portrait of the Admiral! The composition is very appealing and the colours are gorgeous and technically it's of very high quality. It's fun to watch it like this with the "nose in the air"! Thanks a lot for this lovely contribution,

Perfecta composición mi amigo con un encuadre, foco, colorido y DOF muy adecuados.
Los detalles tanto de la mariposa como de la flor y los contrastes de los fuertes colores son muy atractivos.
Una gran presentación, otra más.
TFS y saludos... Ricardo
