Hello friends, this photo of the
Red Admiral Butterfly it is shot
in front of our house at the flowers
of my Mother. They are by 10s and 10s,
are they start there migration ?

I have done some photos, here is
one of them. It is my first time
photographing butterflies with my DSLR.
And DSLR or only compact camera i realized
that photographing butterflies it is an ART.

Hello Asbed,

Beautiful composition of this butterfly. This is actually a Vanessa cardui, I believe (notice the five eyespots on the outer margin of the hindwing). Beautiful color, choice light & I really the partially blurred background that evokes & enhances this butterfly's domain. Well captured & so well engineered.



Gorgeous colours and DOF. Great foreground and background. Nicely framed with the right lighting for such wonderful colours. Well taken Asbed. TFS Trevor

Interesting to see a butterfly from you Asbed! Beautiful photo with very good composition, nice colors and good sharpness.

Hi Asbed
this one is like a fairytale here, with so much natural beauty. Nice to see these kind of images from you. Fantastic point of view, depth and clarity. Bravo! In the Workshop I am presenting you an alternative with some difference in the white balance ...hope you like it Asbed! All the best and once again well done!

Bonjour Asbed,

Les fleurs font un cadrage naturel au papillon. La prise de vue permet de voir les détail et les couleurs du papillon Vanesse. La qualité de la lumière fait ressortir les couleurs. Bonne journée.
