[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Each time I try to identify this kind of buterflies I am always wrong, so I will appreciate the ident from the experts.

I have been experimenting with the sony+close-up+polarizer mixed with difusse flash.

It centainly eliminates many reflections and gives a nice contrast. In the other hand focus is almost impossible, quite a lot of noise appears and details are completely lost if you zoom into the result.

The veredict is that it can be useful for general views, but not for big magnifications, at least with this cam.

Hope you like!

ISO100 - F8 - 1/320 sec. - Manual exposure - Diffuse flash - Hanheld.

hi Felipe,
very good shot of this butterfly, brown color is complementray of green. Good DOF and flash use.

Very nice butterfly image. Excellent sharpness and exposure. Lighting is very nice also with part of the shadow of the butterfly in the frame. Just would like to have seen a bit more space on top and the left side. Butterfly is to much centered in the frame. Best regards, Harry

Hi Felipe,
a very nice picture of a beautiful butterfly.
The details are very good and the colours very nice.
It's a bit to much flash for my liking.
Well done, my friend.

Hello Felipe,
Very fine capture of the Speckled Wood showing very sharp details and good colours. I'm not keen on a black background but you probably found it in the woods with little light and had to use the flash.
TFS and regards, Ulla

Hello Felipe,
Nice capture of The Speckled Wood, Pararge aegeria (Southern European subspecies aegeria).
Fine detail and lighting of the underside, helped by the flash, in an excellent composition.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Hola Felipe|Cristina,
Bellísimos colores y una presentación impecable. Dices que es difícil enfocar, pero claramente lo has conseguido.
Abrazos, José m.

Muy buena la foto. Se nota que hay luz artificial, pero si no, no habrian salido tan bien los detalles y toda la mariposa enfocada. ¡Enhorabuena!

Despite the use of additional close-up the photo looks actually quite sharp (better than the result i used to get with the 250 D on my powershot G3). Really good picture of this Tircis.
