Hello Jean Marie,
The markings on this butterfly are just fantastic, I love them.
Excellent details and colors in a perfect POV.
The whites might be just a tad OE,
but the DOF is very well managed.
TFS. : )

Hi JeanMarie.
Very expressive shot. POV and DOF are selected extremely exactly. DOF is shallow but large enough to contain the whole sharp image of this beautiful butterfly. Diagonal composition of the picture, its perfect lighting and colours make a strong esthetic impression. Well done and TFS.

Interesting combination of colours. Superb buterfly. Very good first plan and background. Bravo.

Nice macro JM with excellent point of view.

I like it a lot: composition, POV, DOF, focus, sharpness, color, lighting, , framing, notes.

I like it: background (exists a slight noise bottom).

I don't like it: nothing to grumble.

The white balance is not the ideal, but the composition is really very pleasant.
Thank you and greetings... Ricardo

Hi JeanMarie

Another beautiful macro ofthis beautiful specimen.
Again the colors and the pattern on the wings here are standing out nicely and look great!
The details are good and the DOF is very nice, blurring the BG wonderfully.
Very good POV and charming composition.
Perhaps the nit here is the slight noise in the BG and the very small softness on the details...but these are very minor things and your photo is great even so :)

Bravo and TFS

Jean, maybe sharpness could be better, but that's just an opinion.

I like composition and colors. Excellent bg too.

One day, I intend to go to Bonito.

What a beautiful butterfly this Callicore Hydaspes is. I love his patterns and colours. And he is nice and sharp too. Well done JeanMarie,

Hi JeanMarie,
that's a beautiful butterfly, the design of the wings is wonderful - but when you look longer you will get dizzy ;-)
Thanks and greetings

bonjour JM
j'avais loupée cette photo joliement colorée de papillon,j'aime aussi ses motifs sur les ailes,la netteté est bonne.
bien vu.

Wonderful colours. Composition, background, details great.
best wishes

Hi Jean Marie, great capture!!!
Beautiful butterfly!!!

quel beau papillon et tu l'as si bien mis en valeur. J'aime le flou sans doute du à l'ouverture de diaph choisie, l'accent si bien mis sur le graphisme de ses ailes. Je m'en inspirerai volontiers dans mes dessins. Par curiosité et échange va voir mon "nocturne" dessiné l'an dernier qui est sur mon blog http://irisgwen.canalblog.com/archives/ex_votos/index.html.
Toute ma sympathie
