Hi Lourent
Wonderful shot this lovely Pieris napi! Great details and colors.
I like the perfect POV and the great yellow dandelion!

Hello Laurent,
Good work made with light, which seems to have been pretty hard when taking the photo. A 1/800s + ISO 200 is a good way to keep balanced the difficult color of this butterfly. It looks like some of the species on our continent (Pieris rapae and Ascia Monuste) and because of that I know are difficult to achieve pictures with good details. I think the POV is challenging, but very visually appealing. I recommend modifying the contrast with post-processing for pictures of these butterflies, maybe could achieve something extra visual impact. But that is cuetión of taste!
Regards, TFS, Jesús
