Good shot! You've captured this Peacock butterfly very nicely indeed. Sharpness and focus are excellent, and the colours really work well together. DOF might be a little deeper I think, although it's hard to tell at this size. About the only thing I'm slightly less convinced by is the composition itself, the position of the butterfly seems slightly off to me... Anyway a very nice capture :-D
P.S. I'm sure someone will be asking you shortly, but how did you sharpen this one?

Beautiful shot Christophe.
With this kind of clarity,you could possibly afford to crop and enlarge it if you wanted to.
Very nice as it is though.
Hi Christophe. This is a lovely image. I often find peacocks a bit nervous and difficult to approach (compared to say Painted Ladies or Red Admirals). You've done a good job here with lovely colours and details. The composition is lovely but I've done a workshop to show some possible alternatives. It can often help to play around with composition during PP. I'm not saying they are better but just different. Yours is lovely, TFS :)

Ahlalaaaaaa quelle merveille... J'ai couru presqu'une heure après un Paon du Jour il y a une semaine. Et c'est terrible, ce papillon a la bougeotte, il reste rarement dans cette position, il faut toujours qu'il replie ses ailes. Bravo pour cette photo, c'est parfait, et quelle belle profondeur de champ..

I love this butterfly and I think you have done it justice here - it looks great on the bracken. Very nice colours and details - a great shot. Well done Christophe.

Strong visual impact.
Aptness of the photo for the site: excellent.
Personal assessment of the note: complete.
Thank you very much for sharing.

Magnifique papillon, bien mis en valeur sur ces fougères qui, à elles seules, sont déjà un très beau sujet photographique. L'usage du flash était recommandé ici, et cela fait bien ressortir la palette de couleurs, tout en conservant de la douceur à l'image. La profondeur de champ est limite au bas de l'aile gauche, mais c'est un détail, compte tenu du bel impact visuel.

Thank you for your critique on my photo. I was looking through your photos and they are great. I like this one because of the butterfly's colours, and also because I am attracted to fern leaves. Very good close up, with good sharpness and colours. The wings show many details. Well done.

Hi Christophe! I love this little fellow. What pretty colours and amazing patterns. And the fern makes him stand out even better. Very good capture, well done.

Beatifull! Very good with the contrary colors red and green. The vern makes the focus on the butterfly and gives it dept.
