Hi Edith.
What a colorful nice picture of the beautiful butterfly. Great composition, excellent details and perfect POV. BG is amazing too: smooth and nicely coloured. Lighting is very impressive. Only note is too short -: ))). I like your nice picture and my kind regards.

Nice colors and compo, good details on the head.

bonjour edith,

quel superbe animal et quelle superbe photo d une extreme beaute tous les 2!
merci beaucoup,

Hi Edith,
Sharp with color clarity. You captured well on the beautiful blue color on the upper side wings. POV and composition are great. Very well done.

Hello Edith,
the intense blue colour of the wing upperside of Polyommatus bellargus is well shown in your picture. It is also nice to see clearly the underside wing pattern. The brownish ground colour and the fiery orange spots are also characteristic for bellargus. Observing these little jewels flying in bright sunshine is a particular experience.
Best wishes, Peter

Bonjour Edith
Je suis ravi d'avoir des nouvelles de toi, pour ce qui est de mon Sphinx il est surtout de sortie la nuit... une prise de cet individu le jour est plutôt un hasard (des fois le hasard fait les bonnes choses)
Pour ton poste: très belle prise, les couleurs sont superbes ! cadrage soigné Bravo
Amicalement Robi

Espectaculares colores con un buen encuadre. Original y buena pose del insecto. Conjunto llamativo y agradable. Saludos Edith.

Hello Edith,
You've captured one of my favourite Blues here, the Adonis Blue (Lysandra bellargus) that I've seen in Dorset in England. Your composition is very beautiful and details are sharp but it's a great pity that you've sharpened it too much to make the colours very harsh.
TFS and regards, Ulla

Bonjour Edith,
Fine capture of the Adonis Blue (Polyammatus bellargus) showing the characteristics, including the typical almost turquoise blue. This is pretty sharp and well composed with excellent BG but I thinks tyhe colours are a little over-saturated.

magnifique ma didith, il viendrait bien butiner mes pensées de TL
j'aime beaucoup les couleurs, bleues sur le dessus et brunes sur le dessous, le corp est aussi splendide
très joli ma didith

Salut Edith,
Cest vraiment a tres bonne image!
I like so much all the colour's explosion used here, in such harmonic composition.
It's very good the focus and sharp details, as well as the nicely blurred background.
Mes felicitacions et merci pour le partage.
Mes amities sinceres,

Very nice shot but unfortunatelly it's NOT Polyommatus icarus. Argus is right: it's Polyammatus bellargus - very nice and attractive species. Thanks

Hello Edith,
Colors are great and very saturated, to much saturated in my opinion, and due to that they don't look natural anymore in this wonderful Adonis Blue butterfly.
Sharpness and lighting are good and the soft color tones in the background against wich the butterfly and flower do stand out perfectly, are wonderful.
Composition is very good to, but your name in blue at the lower left corner and the yellow line insede the frame are leading the eye of a bit from the main subject, wich is the butterfly.
Very nice image anyway.
Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards,

Bonsoir Edith,magnifique photo,les couleurs et les détails sont superbe.Bravo,merci pour le partage


I really like this shot Edith. I agree with some other comments that the frame and signature take away from the photo. I also notice several dust spots on your lens. I did a WS to see if I could Improve it some. I hope you like it.

Hi Edith,
I like this butterfly and I think you have done well to capture it's true beauty.
You caught perfect wing position because we can see top side and bottom side of wings. This is difficult to do for many butterflies, but when it happens, that's a bonus.
It is a very colorful image. The colors are a tiny bit strong, but I like it.
It is a tight crop on top, but you may not have had a choice. I would love to see about an inch of empty space there.
Thank you very much for sharing this one!

beau travail de pro


Bonjour Edith, très jolie photo de ce papillon, j'en ai posté un également, je le prenais pour un Agestis d'Arcia, votre photo est très intéressante car on voit les 2 faces des ailes de ce magnifique et minuscule papillon, les couleurs sont peut etre un peu trop saturées mais c'est la une opignon bien personelle, en tout cas bravo, très beau shot,

Hi Edith,

WOW!!! A beautiful photo. So much color. Detail and POV are excellent. Very well composed.


hello edith,
what a wonderful capture, your point of view gives visibility to both side of the wings, the colours are well saturated and are in good contrast, the insect and the plant stands out well against the blurred bg, liked the composition and framing too,
well done,
tfs & regards

Belle photo de ce papillon superbe, bien pris, il a de jolies couleurs et le fait de le prendre sous cet angle nous montre bien les détails qu' il soit du dessus ou du dessous. Amitiés Thomas

Hi there,
I am finally back and semi-recovered from my jet lag, so I hope to catch up on some of the beautiful shots I have missed in the past month. : 0
What a special shot you have managed, Edith.
I love that you were able to show both the top and the the underside of this butterfly's wings. It always amazes me how different in colors and patterns the two sides can be.
Beautiful colors on this one.
TFS. : )

Hi Edith,
Wonderful shot with brilliant colours and fantastic lighting. The illumination looks superb and against the smooth BG it stands out well. Excellent POV to portray it and very nicely composed. Kudos.

Bonjour Édith, long time no see comme ils disent en anglais. Qu'elle belle photo et saturation de couleurs. La composition est superbe aussi. Bravo!

The colours in this are stunning Edith.I enjoy this DOF and positiioning of the butterfly.

Bonjour Edith,
J'aime beaucoup cette prise, la compo est excellente les couleurs sont bien rendues et POV idéal, j'ai pris pas mal de photos de ce papillon mais je ne suis pas encore content du résultat, bravo

les couleurs me semblent un peu trop saturé,bien que ce ne soit pas mon ecran.pour le reste c'est une belle photo de ce joli petit papillon.

Hello Edith,
what a beautiful colorful photo! I do so love the blue butterflies, and what makes this one so great is your angle and great POV. the bright orange of that flower bud is perfect. TFS

Hello Edith,
It is interesting to see this colourful fellow showing both sides of the wing!
Fine point of view and an attractive composition, really bright and vivid colours...
Nice composition!
