[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Dear colleagues from TN. Well I have you found. For several days I returned after a week spent in Croatia.
I visited the island of Pag bis Novalja.
It is my first attempt to photograph butterflies.
I hope you like it.

Hello adrian,
What a lovely shot with very beautiful colors, i like the pose of this Scarce Swallowtail
superbe sharpness and lighting.Best regards Siggi

Hola Adrian,
primero gracias por tu amable comentario y luego felicitarte por la bonita Iphiclides. Naturalidad en los colores.
Con esa luz tan potente y esa buena eos 450 intenta otro dia subir f y bajar la velocidad ( si usas trípode o monopie) y seguramente conseguirás más nitidez.
Mi anterior cámara fue la eos 450 y quedé muy satisfecho de su calidad de imagen.
Un abrazo: Josep Ignasi.

They are elusive for me Adrian! This or of this family is among the few I have...They make a good subject...sort of like driving a white Buick.

Bun revenit din vacanta, mai ales ca observ ca ai alergat si tu dupa fluturii de acolo, si nu fara folos. Am abuzat si eu de fluturi, caci a fost perioada lor de glorie. Este prima "coada de randunica" de pe insula Pag pe care o vad, si imi place.
Astept sa vad pe fratii si surorile ei!

Hi Adrian, welcome back!

You show us that you are realy succesfull on butterfly macros. A fine close-up capture of a Scarce Swallowtail (Iphiclides podalirius) from wonderful POV with excellent details and delightful composition.
TFS and have a nice day!

Salut Adrian
O poza frumoasa, bine incadrata si cu detalii bune
Numai bine

am asteptat si eu sa se aseze acest urias fluture pe o pajiste prin Bibinje...nu a vrut nici pace! :)
vine insa destul de des o pereche in copacii din fata casei...dar 200mm nu ma ajuta f tare!
oricum mai incerc si tie felicitari ca l-ai ochit si chiar bine!

Ciao Adrian, bella podalirio ben ripresa ad ali spiegate, ottima la resa del bianco, buona la messa a fuoco e bello il contrasto con lo sfondo scuro, molto bravo, ciao Silvio

Lieber Adrian,
Ich sehe...Du gehst jetzt auch auf Schmetterlingsjagd! Uebrigens mein erstes Schnetterlingsbild war eben dieser Segelfalter (Iphiclides podalirius). Die Komposition des Bildes ist gut, es fehlt vielleicht ein bisschen an Licht. Hast Du eine Fotobearbeitungssoftware? Du könntest so Schärfe und Helligkeit korrigieren. Bin natürlich auch gespannt, was Du für eine Ueberraschung hast..ein Schmetterling??
Herzlich grüsst

Hi Adrian. Really a god POV and light to exalt the splendid colours of this old one. Very good details. And now we’re waiting for others fascinating butterflyes!


Interesanta poza asta cu fluturele cu aripile intinse,chiar daca a avut un accident si nu mai are varful din spate stanga.Salutari si bine ai revenit.Alin.

A fine capture of this somewhat worn I. podalirius, taken from a fine dorsal POv to show its wings with excellent clarity against a fine OOF contrasting natural BG.

Hello Adrian,
This is a beautiful Swallowtail even though it is a bit worn! Great focus on the head and the antenna and fine natural colours. It stands out against the green very well and I like your composition.
TFS and cheers, Ulla

Hallo Adrian
gutten morgan
very beautiful butterfly species and its very nice shot. nicely composed and focused. danke
best wishes

Hello Adrian!
Nice capture of Iphiclides podalarius a rather common species in South Europe :)
Nice composition and colours.
Best regards,

Hallo "Nachbar",
ich habe Deine Gallerie durchgesehen und entdeckt, dass dies Dein erstes Schmetterlingsbild ist. Ich sage dazu nur: mach weiter so. Der Segelfalter ist leuchtend (obwohl es ein abgeflogenes Exemplar ist), scharf abgebildet und der Hintergrund diskret. Die diagonale Anordnung und die azentrische Position des Falters macht das Bild interessant.
Beste Grüsse

hello Adrian
nice composition with good details and great colours
greeting lou

Hi Adrian
Not an easy subject to capture, but you have done a great job with this butterfly on a flower.Nicely composed with great exposure.Unique designs on its wings with one missing tail point.Well done and TFS,
cheers erwin...

hello Adrian,
Hope you'll be doing fine friend. After your comments I went looking for your recent photo but then had to resort to your home page and found this beautiful butterfly there which looks just like a beautiful kite. It is sharply focused, with a view from above and the thistle flower she stealing nectar from also is so elegant. The scene is really very impressive and the photo a keeper. Thanks a lot for sharing this and thanks a lot for your support brother.....take care...warmest regards/Abid
