Bonjour Roberto,
Au manqué cette image fine et typique pour toi. J'aime bien quand tu accordes beaucoup d'espace au papillon, le montrant ainsi bien dans son environnement naturel.
Belle luminosité et couleurs naturelles.
Bon dimanche
Amitiés
Anne

Hello Roberto,
A wonderful photo of this pretty little Berger's Clouded Yellow. The white balance is perfect allowing us to see the natural colors in it's wings. Excellent detail and composed in a very attractive manner.
Today is the first day of Fall here in the US., but this image makes me think of Spring.
