Bonjour Luciano,

Les fleurs cadrent bien le papillon. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails du papillon Cuivré fuligineux. La lumière fait ressortir la beauté des couleurs. Bonne journée.


Ciao Luciano, una delizia, non facile da trovare ad ali aperte ed è sempre rognosa da mettere tutta bene a fuoco, gran macro, bravissimo, ciao Silvio

Perfect metering, though I have not much knowledge about the insects but from photographic point of view I see that, nice catch.

Well done to capture the details in the dark coloring of the insect, though it led to over exposure of the flowers behind. You could use PS or LightRoom to dial down the brightness of the flowers, Luc.
