[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Le paon du jour (Nymphalis io) est un insecte lépidoptère de la famille des nymphalidés.

C'est un papillon mobile, très commun dans toute l'Europe tempérée. On rencontre souvent les chenilles sur des buissons d'orties desquelles elles se nourrissent.Comme tous les insectes, les papillons sont des animaux à sang froid (Comme les reptiles). Il leur faut un peu de chaleur, de soleil, pour voler. Quand la température est insuffisante, ils ont un petit truc très efficace: ils battent fortement des ailes sur place pour provoquer un réchauffement corporel de quelques degrés.

Et voilà pourquoi on trouve des Lépidoptères qui vivent pas loin des régions polaires!

Hello Pat,
Love the way the beautiful warm colors of the butterfy do stand out against the small white flowers.
Composition, sharpness and lighting are good, but there is so much grain, wich I never have seen before using my own D200, in the image that it does let the beauty of the image a little down.
Best regards,
Harry

Imaginer d'encore si belles ou chose si sauvage et libre. Le coeur du vôtre est rempli avec l'amour pour ceci. L'image très délicat et très émotive.

Hi Pat,
A beautiful one with such lovely colours and sharpness. Perfect lighting and exposure and you have captured a nice pose on the small white flowers. I like the way its proboscis is out ready and the diagonal alignment. Excellent POV to portray it and very nicely composed. Kudos.
TFS.

Bonjour Pat ! Incroyable les 'yeux' sur les ailes du papillon. On dirait des vrais avec la 'lumière' réfléchie. Bravo pour ta prise, c'est piqué et bien exposé. Excellent DOF. Merci !
