Actinote anteas (Doubleday, 1847)

Hello friends!

Taking pictures of butterflies with my new macro lens; without stabilizer, hand held and with manual focus, it is not easy! ... But I have so much fun with this! ... Now I am used more firmly grasp in the camera, also I use my knees as points of support to put my elbows making like a tripod and I also avoid breathing in the moment of taking pictures .... Really fun! ... And very different from how I was taking pictures with my little compact camera!

Hi Jesus,

Amazing capture of this lovely butterfly. Very sharp image and lovely colors.


Ciao Jesus, non ti stancare di far foto che io non mi stanco mica di vederle, bellissima questa su un delizioso fiore, bello lo sfondo omogeneo e luminoso, ottima nitidezza, splendidi dettagli e fantastici colori, bravissimo, ciao Silvio

Bonjour Jésus, bonne composition mettant bien en valeur le papillon. Bonne profondeur de champs et jolies couleurs. Congratulations, didier.

Ciao Jesus. Macro spettacolare. Gran POV e gestione di luce e colori.


Hi Jesus

This sharp beautiful photo takes full advantage of the contrasting colours and the tilted flower for composition. Just wonder why the first antennae differs from the 2nd even with f13. maybe the angle or the light.

Hello Jesús,
A fine hand-held capture of this species of Heliconiid.
The POV and composition are just right for the closed wing pose, taken with excellent sharpness and natural colours.
You use you new equipment well!
Thanks and best regards MF,
