[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This photo was taken during a walk in 'het steengelaag' in Stekene, Belgium, which is former sand winning area, for making bricks, and now protected. The chalange with butterflies is to convince them to stay in place while approaching, and preparing to take the picture. Specialy with my older sony camera, which takes his time to 'click'. Now that I have a Nikon D70, with telelens, I hope it will be easier.

Welcome here to TN and I like your 1st post.

The composition is great and the sharpness excellent.

Very well done and thanks for posting. I hope to see lots more of your work in future.

Welcome on TN Marcel. - Nice and clean shot of this little beauty on a well blurred background. Personally I would crop a little more of the right side to get the butterfly out of centre but that is a personally matter. Otherwise it is a very nice capture.

Bienvenue sur TN, Marcel.
Une très jolie première image bien composée avec un angle de prise de vue atypique. Restitution des couleurs naturelles réussie.
Un bon travail: image et note.
Merci et au plaisir d'admirer vos prochaines photos et de lire vos notes.
