Bonjour Luciano,
Un joli papillon que la Phoebe. Etonnée que tu l'as vu en octobre, mais vous avez eu un bel automne. Belle pose, classique, comme tu l'écris. Un beau posting de plus dans ta riche galerie.
Bonne semaine!

Hello Luciano
Another beautiful closed up image.As usual razor sharp image with great natural colours and great details.Light is excellent
TFS Michel

Ciào Luciano.

Belle prise de vue de ce Fritillary. Belle netteté de l'ensemble. Couleurs naturelles et contrastes satisfaisants.

Mise en page bien orientée, en diagonale ; personnellement, j'aurai réduit un peu la partie droite de l'image, qui n'apporte pas grand chose au sujet. probablement, un cadrage carré.

Note comme d'habitude pleine d'intérêt.

Arrivederci

Hello Luciano,
An excellent capture with great details of the texture and patterns of wings,lovely natural colour and very well balanced composition.
TFS and my regards,
Joy
