photographied this one inside the house where he was hanging around for a while.don't know his id at all,if anyone can help.i like him because of his small haired wings and his greenish face,and... he was very cooperative.
his nose part is turned up,does anyone know why?

Hello Caroline,
this is a nice specimen of
- Pararge aegeria
- Nymphalidae / Satyrinae
Presentation of its wing colours and surface structures is admirable, very sharp and natural.
The 'nose' are the so called palpi which are not an organ for the sense of smell.
Best wishes, Peter

Hello Caroline,
Very nice close capture of a Speckled Wood, showing the underside of the wings. The butterfly practically fills the image and it is sharp and shows excellent detail.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Bravo, Caroline.
Amazing reproduction of the cute butterfly. I am impressed of technique and quality of the shot. F-number is great as well as the other exposure parameters. POV is selected very well. Details and sharpness if the butterfly image, colour reproduction are simply outstanding. Colours of the FG and BG are fantastic. My compliments and best regards. Superb work.

Hello Caroline awsome sharp detail you got here light was perfect I like how the shadow goes horizontal, good crip detail in the eye. Nicely composed and good closup tfs rgds Necip.

great macro details
very beautiful butterfly with excellent sharpness and colors
well done Caroline


Wowwww! It's so great ! S'marvelous .!

Hello Caroline,

This macro photograph is perfect! The details are amazing and beautiful and the DOF very well controlled. There is no sharpness fall of on the butterfly and the background is perfectly blurred. The composition is also very good and the empty space was distributed correctly. I would have preferred a natural support for the butterfly but this is no mistake. This is a high quality picture Caroline. Great Job! Thank you!

With Friendly Regards,

bonjour caroline
il n'y a rien a dire,c'est parfaitement realisé.
netetté details DOF et BG parfait.
ps:même pas une cuisse de marcassins!!
