Hi Anne.
What a perfect shot you have taken. The reproduction of butterfly and whole scenery is excellent. I like rich colours of the shot, sharpness and details of the butterfly image, beautiful sharp flower at the FG and fine well blurred BG. Lighting of your shot is amazing as well as the whole composition. My compliments and TFS.

En voilà un qui s'est laissé photographier dans toute sa splendeur.
Bonne journée.

Hi Anne,
nice shot with a very good DOF, the subject is well seen against the BG. The details and composition are also good.
I think you have used little too much noise reducing for the BG.
Well done.

Hello Anne
Very nice shot of this wonderful butterfly,
Great focusing,lighting and composition,
A little bit noise around the wings,
Welldone, TFS.


Hi Anne,
Beautiful composition. Great sharpness and exposure. This Dark Green Fritillary stands out from background nicely. Lovly picture.

Liebe Anne,
Deine Technik (1/500 usw.) zahlt sich wirklich aus. Hier hast Du wieder ein schönes Resultat eine nicht häufig gezeigte Art vorgeführt. Warum ist das Bild nur 92 kB gross, Du könntest es doch doppelt so gross sichern? (In PS unter "Sichern als Web Datei" kann die Grösse in kB gewählt werden).
Herzlich grüsst

Hi Anne,
A beautiful one....
Nice colours and a very good sharpness.
Love the light as well...
Well done

Hello Anne,
Fine summer shot of a Dark Green Fritillary, somewhat worn, but sharply presented and well composed with pleasing Bokeh BG.
Something to look forward to in a few months!
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Bonjour Anne,
An excellent image of this butterfly!
It's plenty of clear and sharp details all over, specially on the antennas.
The colors and patterns on the wings are so good.
Great the way you managed the DOF, the blurred flower under the insect works so well for this composition.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Bonjour Anne et merci beaucoup pour ce cliché très aimable et "pédagogique" du Grand nacré! Cette photo me plaît particulièrement comme une prise très réussite avec les ailes complètement ouvertes et tout les points et marques clairement visibles pour servir comme comparaison entre d'autres Heliconiinae! Elles sont très/trop subtiles et égarantes des fois toutes ces marques se ressemblantes quand on veut confirmer un id seulement du haut de la surface du papillon, mais maintenant tu nous a donné un spécimen exemplaire comme modèle - merci!
Bonne journée,

Hi Anne

A simple but very beautiful capture and composition.
This lovely butterfly stands out lovely from the lovely BG and it's presented with plenty of very sharp details and charming colors.
I really like to see all those textures on his bod and also those sharp antennas.
The exposure and lighting are very nicely managed and the POV is terrific.

Bravo and TFS

Bonsoir Anne

Hola Anne,
Una composición de gran belleza y excelente definición, con luz y fondo muy bonitos. Saludos

Hello Anne,
Well, what can I say about this picture? At first: I really like it :) Colours are really great, contrast very good and detals on butterfly's body well seen.
TFS and best regards,

Nice work Anne,
Very good DOF, color, exposure, sharpness, detail, POV, and nicely OOF BG.
A pleasure to view :)
Well done!

Hello Anne,
Sorry for catching up with your new picture a bit late.
The Dark Green Fritillary you have captured so very well seems to be a veteran with good many experiences behind it. The state of its wings, spread wide for you to capture, suggests that.
Excellent shot with perfect focus, sharp details, natural colours and a fine BG.
Well done!

Hello Anne,
Elle est vraiment superbe cette prise avec ces couleurs vives, détails, composition, exposition et profondeur de chmpas, Ton sujet est magnifique et vraiment bien rendu avec un beau BG flou pastel. Bravo!

Guten Tag, Anne,
zauberhaftes Portrait des Grossen Perlmutterfalters. Perfekte Detailwiedergabe, und sehr malerische, stimmungsvolle Einbettung in die Pflanzen seiner Umgebung. Prächtiger Hintergrund aus Licht und Dunkel und Wolken von zarten Farben.
Mit Dank und lieben Grüßen,

Hello Anne,
this looks great, I love the light and the colors. The POV and background are amazing. Sharpness and exposure are just perfect. A beautiful composition.

excellent shot. Brilliant colors.
Very appropriate DOF.
Clear details.
I might have chosen to slightly crop out the right, to have the butterfly less centered and remove a little of irrelevant space. Just a small nit. Brilliant picture.
Good note: consice and informative.
