Bonjour Laurent, c'est un tableau de premiére classe, la papillon est super mais la fleur qui doit être je pense un Buglosse d'Italie est trés reussie. Agreable couleur du BG qui met en valeur le sujet. Magnifique, Didier.

Bonsoir Laurent,
Un beau machaon sur une belle fleur, voilà un sujet de photo rêvé. Tu as saisi l'opportunité et en as fait un magnifique tableau. Une seule petite remarque, le haut de l'image aurait pu être un tantinet plus généreux.
Merci et bonne soirée
Anne

Hello Laurent,
Very nice,colourful close up.POV,details,blurred BG and composition are wonderful.

Hi Laurent,
I love to see this elegant swallowtail. This is great pov. You freezed this butterfly in action nicely. Very well done.
JC

I can understand your preference to keep as much of the lovely flowers within the frame as possible, Laurent. They are so integral to this great composition.
Though the tip of one wing of the butterfly has gone a little soft, it is still a superb image.
Well done and TFS.

moi je dis que quand on arrive à faire des photos pareilles, on devrait vite passer PRO!

bonjour Laurent
la composition fleur/papillon est parfaite, très joli machaon, j'aime bien, tu connais plein de noms, il n'empêche que je les oublie au fur et à mesure, mais les photos beaucoup moins, surtout de cette qualité, excellent POV, l'arrière plan clair détache parfaitement le sujet du reste, les couleurs sont magnifiques, belle prise !!

Hi Laurent,

This looks more like a beautiful painting than a photograph. The butterfly and the flowers are all spectacular. Wonderful colors - fine details - and a beautiful composition.

Jane

Excelente enfoque y profundidad de campo Laurent. Los colores de las alas los has plasmado fielmente . Los detalles de todo el cuerpo de Papilio son magníficos y eso que esa mariposa es muy grande. El conjunto els bello y artíatico. Una excelente fotografía. Gracias por tus correciones, yo no soy muy bueno cambiando colores y modificando las tomas jejeje. Saludos.

Bonjour Laurent,
Je suis jaloux de ce beau cliché : J'ai des photos de ce superbe papillon, mais aucune de profil, car je le préfère ainsi. Sauf erreur il est sur une Vipérine (Echium vulgare)... Belle netteté et bonne PdC donnant un fond doux.
Bravo !

Bonjour Laurent.
Magnifique la photo.c'est le roi des papillons.

Hola Laurent,
Una increible mariposa retratada muy bien por ti, me gusta mucho el encuadre, los detalles captados en el insecto y su diseño. Me llama la atención las florcitas, crecen unas muy parecidas por aquí durante el verano
Felicitaciones
Hernán

Fabuleux!!! Je viens de découvrir cette beauté et je n'en reviens pas. Une photo parfaite! Merci 1000 fois!

Salut Laurent, je me promène dans ta gallerie et je m'appercoit que j'ai souvent regardé et montré cette photo sans jamais y laissé une note positive !!!!
Honte à moi,
c'est vraiment un petit chef d'oeuvre et je suis très fier de lui donner 2 point et de la porter ainsi a un joli score tout rond de 100 points bien mérités,
un énorme bravo pour cette merveille
amitiés,
Pat

Salut Laurent,
C'est vrai que celle-ci est mieux réussie que la précédente que j'ai regardée sur ta galerie. Ce n'est pas la précédente qui est mauvaise, c'est simplement celle-ci qui a quelque chose de magique avec ces fleurs colorées (de la grande consoude ?), et la beauté de l'arrière plan, et un perfait dof ! Bravo et meilleurs voeux pour 2008.
Antoine.
