Bonjour Mike,
Le sujet est beaucoup trop grand pour que l'on puisse apprécier la finesse des détails et la délicatesse des couleurs mais il est relativement bien présenté malgré une opposition sur l'arrière plan pas assez forte.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hi Mike,

Another excellent capture of Mediterranean species. This one is difficult to find against a green background, but you managed that well. Again, compare to my recent posting of the same species from Israel (http://www.treknature.com/viewphotos.php?l=3&p=177509).
