[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Esta borboleta foi fotografada num jardim da empresa onde trabalho de manhã, quase foi esmagada por mim, por não ter visto ela no chão, mas rapidamente peguei a máquina e tirei algumas fotos dela, logo após ela foi embora.

Phocides polybius (Hesperiidae)

Obrigada a Jose Roberto pelo ID.

Hola Nilson
a fantastic picture of this small butterfly taken from an excellent POV, very good sharpness and very beautiful natural colours, well composed.
Best regards

Qué envidia me da ver tus fotos Nilson, por la rareza y belleza de esos insectos que tenéis por allí. El enfoque en diagonal hizo que se perdiera algo de foco al fondo, pero aún así, un bello e interesante documento.

Un abrazo: Josep Ignasi.

Oi Nilson, ainda bem que a viu a tempo, lindo trabalho. Gostei muito das cores. Você parece comigo, ando com a camera a tiracolo, muitas vezes dá tempo de registrar um momento assim, outros não. Fico feliz que tenha conseguido e compartilhado.

Hola Nilson,
Very interesting butterfly, well photographed. Very good lighting and focus. Many thanks.

Olá Nilson.

Hallo Nilson
This butterfly has gorgeous and most striking colours, especially the mustard yellow at the bottom. You have captured its wide opened wings with great clarity, showing all the lovely details to its best. The red patches on the wings and head are eye-catching and draw ones attention to look closer. I like the point of view and composition. It was a pleasure to stop by such a beauty. Best regards.

Another fantastic borboleta in Your gallery. Wonderful macro, great sharpness (even on the antennas, too), great pose and POV. Simply excellent technically, and pleasant to the eyes. Bravo.

Hello Nilson.

Very nice photography of this butterfly.

Very good point of view and composition of the picture. Very good sharpness and depth of field, so that many details are visible. I particularly appreciate the contrast between the black color from the wings and the green color from the background.

Thank you for the sharing.

See you soon on treknature for other pictures.

All the best.


Essa borboleta tem as asas muito bonitas, e ficou bem enquadrada. Parabéns pelo trabalho!
