Hello Christian,
great to see a post from you :)
This is an exceptional shot!!!
Excellent timing to capture the flying hoverfy as well as the butterfly! Very sharp and full of detail. Brilliant clarity.
Well composed and a good POV.
Decent DOF.
Well done!
Best regards,
Joe :D

Hi Christian!
Great timing! I am really impressed in quality and sharpness of this picture! To take a good photo of mobile butterfly is not easy, and here we have also a very fast Syrphidae fly!
Bravo and TFS!
Best withes from Poland,

Salut Christian,
Excellent combination picture!
I like so much the details and sharpness of the image.
You managed pretty well the composition with the flying hoverfly at the top right of the frame.
Very good lighting and blurred background.
Felicitacions et merci du partager.
Mes amities,

Hello Christian,
beautiful spicture, great colors and composition
nice detailes
Regards, Dejan

Nice capture of these two getting into this thistle Christian.
Good detail considering the bright light you were working with.

Hello Christian,
two lovers of the thistle, totally concentrated on their object of desire. Splendid use of backlight on the butterfly - beautiful transparency of wings with so many different shades of whites and subtle yellow, green, blue, and grey. And a very funny intruder completely within focal range is cheerfully stealing the butterfly's show here.
The thistle modestly decided to stay half hidden behind the curtain of the frame - a good way to get additional attention from the audience, her other lovers, me included.
Thank you! My best regards,

Bonjour Christian,
Heureuse de te revoir sur TN. Un joli duo attiré par le beau chardon. Image très fine, comme tu sais si bien les faire. Flore et insectes que j'aurais pu voir aussi chez moi, naturel puisque nous sommes voisins
Bonne fin de semaine

Hi Christian,
Just marking this wonderful post from you for now and will come back later with a proper critique. Sorry tied up with an urgent assignment.

Hi Christian,
This is wonderful image. Hoverfly, Large White, and Welted thistle are in sharp focus. Nice color contrast. All three subjects are stand out nicely from background. TFS,

Superbe composition Christian et belle technique. Excellente image comme à ton habitude, du bon travail ! Bravo !


Hello My Friend.....

Wow.... you have really caught the action here. A magnificent clear sharp shot of both insects. The in flight bee has been masterfully captured. Congrats! Your composition is pleasing and the quality of the image is awesome. Thank you for sharing this beautiful image. :-)

Some good luck to get the inflight hoverfly so sharp along with the large white Christian.
Excellent capture mf.

Bonjour Christian, je reviens de temps en temps sur TN pas assez souvent!! et je laisse passer de bons clichés. Celui ci est remarquable par son association de "personnages invertébrés"!! le Syrphe envisage peut être de se poser sur l'antenne! Félicitations Christian, Didier.
