La fotografia
E’ stata scattata con il teleobiettivo 300 mm., con misurazione della luce spot, regolazione manuale del tempo e del diaframma. Anche questa immagine fa parte della serie di farfalle (Vanessa cardui, Colias crocea) fotografate posate su astri selvatici (aster diffusus). La femmina (sono evidenti le due macchie scure sulla parte superiore delle ali anteriori) è posata sugli astri ed assume la postura per il possibile accoppiamento con il maschio (evidente l’unica macchia scura più tenue sulla parte superiore delle ali anteriori). In WORKSHOP un’immagine con la messa a fuoco sul maschio.

Hi Maurizio,
Somehow, this picture looks like a painting. Tones of colors and natural exposure and very nice to see. Those butterflies seem ready to mate. The ideal would have been a faster shutter speed which could have frozen the second one but I'm sure that lightning that day wasn't strong enough for that. Well seen and TFS,
Claudine

Ciao Maurizio, foto difficile, ma hai fatto bene a tentarla e a postarla perchè è molto interessante, mostrando la preparazione della femmina all'accopppiamento d il mashio sul punto di scendergli sopra, grande scatto, bravo, ciao Silvio

Ciao Maurizio,
Bellissimo!
This is a wonderful action macro of a P. rapae female showing that she does not want to be fertilised by raising her abdomen that has male pheromones at its tip.
The female is totally sharp and the flying male well seen in this excellent composition against a fine neutral BG.
Bravo!
Grazie e complimenti,
Ciao,
Ivan

Hello Maurizio

Very nice composed.

ciao Maurizio,oggi vicino di posto.....
bella composizione con cattura del momento
del richiamo amoroso della femmina,ma ancora una volta quello che mi colpisce sono le tonalita' e il cromatismo cosi leggero e soffice e la perfetta gestione della luce .
Ho anch'io degli scatti similari,ma l'esposizione e la difficile gestione del
bianco della pieride li rendono inutilizzabili.

Hi Maurizio,

How wonderful to capture this pair of beautiful butterflies. Interesting to see the female in perfect focus resting on the flowers while the male is fluttering around her. I like the composition with the pretty flowers.

Hello Maurizio

A unique look at these small white butterflies.
A very good display of the mating behaviour,the one perched is receptive to the approaching butterfly.
Good timing.
The focus is very good,with an excellent POV and DOF.

Muy hermosa foto. Bello el momento capturado aqui. La pose de las dos Mariposas son una exelente imagen. Felicidades y gracias por compartir.
Un saludo y un fuerte abrazo mi fino amigo.

Hi Maurizio. Real top class post with double butterflies in frame. Nice perspective and very well done. Jusni

Maravillosa fotografía Maurizio, con un gran encuadre y enfoque del segundo plano uy como no, esa preparación del insecto receptor. La guinda la pone la mariposa que se acerca. Un excelente trabajo técnico de gran visión por tu parte.

Bonjour Maurizio,
Scène très naturelle, finement photographiée. Les couleurs subtiles de cette image me plaisent particulièrement. J'avais aussi pu prendre des images du même genre l'année dernière, mais je les ai perdues lors du crash de mon PC au début de l'année. De toute menière ton image est bien meilleure avec un excellent cadrage et le focus sur le papillon femelle. Bien Vu!
