[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

Black-veined White

Still looking back to last summer!
We still have cold and cloudy weather, but it seems that for tomarrow we will have some change. So let's hope.
Aporia crataegi is a quite frequent visitor in the area where I take pictures. It is not always easy to catch it, but in the late afternoon it sits quite often for a longer time on a well chosen flower, very often on daisies, like on this picture. It's probaly for camouflage reasons.
I don't present this butterfly any more, I already have done it several times.

I would like to dedicate this picture to Bob Shannon to thank him for his natural pictures and interesting notes and also for the interest he has for other photographers and subjects of all kind.

Hallo Anne !
Ein interessantes Bild.
Ein herrlicher fangen einige ausgezeichnete Farben.
Eine schöne Woche,

Hello Anne !
What a wonderful picture ! In France we have to look back to last summer, too, if we want to see butterflies, because we can't see any of them yet. I love this picture from your archives. Sharpness and details are excellent, nice natural colors, and exposue was very well-maaged on white butterfly and white flower. Composition, POV, pose of the butterfly and blured BG are amazing, too. Very well done !

Hello Anne,
A fine close-up shot of this lovely butterfly with great details and composition.
TFS and G's,

Ciao Anne,
una splendida ed elegante farfalla in una composizione accurata e raffinata con la bellissima posa sulla margherita leggermente inclinata in un perfetto equilibrio, che dà la sensazione che per un attimo il tempo si sia fermato, più o meno quello che dice Michel con una vena di dolce melanconia.
Buona notte

I am very late today, but am so much honoured because you saved or took a once in a while super shot for TN. this is wonderful..and again thanks...I wish to meet you some day..but if I met everyone...I would be broke!

Bonjour Anne,
You have captured not only a beautiful butterfly, but the light, sharpness, and depth of the Daisy is remarkable.
Excellent work by Anne...

Hi Anne,

Top class butterfly shot with so much details and clear markings on the wings. The perch on the solitary flower is so well isolated against the muted background. Excellent work and TFS.

Best regards,

Merhaba Anne,
harika bir makro; netlik ve detaylar mükemmel olmuş.
Pozlama ve kompozisyon olarak da çok başarılı.

This is a super picture Anne, I love the diffused BG and the exposure here. The sharpness is also amazing. little space at the back could have been cropped

Bonjour Anne,
Très belle composition de deux sujets bien en focus et bien détachés sur un fond flou, la lumière captée est également superbe
Bravo et merci pour le partage de cette belle photo

Ann, nice sharp picture with sharp focus. Great shot. Ganesh

Picture is good but I tried workshop.

Hi :)
This is a beautiful photograph. Perfect setting and an ideal perch for such a silvery butterfly :)

PS. I did some composition-wise edition, hope you like it.

Bonsoir Anne,
Elle est très belle cette femelle 'Gazé' sur sa marguerite... comme sur un plateau.
Merci pour cette très belle prise

Hi Anne,
