Je ne suis pas un grand spécialiste mais je pense qu'il s'agit d'un "moyen nacré" (Argynnis adippe), famille des Nymphalidae, sous famille des Heliconiinae.Plutôt Issoria lathonia comme me l'a suggéré Chris
Le papillon est sur une fleur de lavande.
La photo a été prise avec un zoom 55-200 Canon (pas d'objectif macro), focale 200 mm, sur un 350D Canon.
Petit recadrage. Réglage des niveaux et du contraste

I am not a big specialist but I think that it is about a " High Brows Fritillary " (Argynnis adippe), family of Nymphalidae, under family of Heliconiinae or rather Issoria lathonia (thanks Chris!).
The butterfly is on a flower of lavender.
The photo was taken with a zoom 55-200 Canon (no macro objective), focal 200 mm, on one 350D Canon.
Small recentring. Regulation of the levels and the contrast

Beautiful capture! Excellent composition with great colours and clear details.
Thanks for sharing!

Very pretty butterfly, Jean.
I like your POV. It brings out the beauty of this specimen rather well.
TFS.

Hello Jean,
Focus is not complete at left wing. Rest is fine to me. Maybe cropping more but some
say this is a personal taste..

Hi JJ

Lovely shot of the Butterfly resting on the Lavender, the colours of the Butterfy & flower stand out really well against the blurred BG. Great detail in the Butterfly too.

Bonjour Jean-Jacques !
C'est un très joli papillon, avec de belles couleurs et de jolis motifs. Les détails sont excellents, tout comme la composition, le point de vue et la profondeur. Joli contraste également entre le papillon et l'arrière-plan. De l'excellent travail !

Wow lovely colours. I like the composition here and the BG sets it off. Good details too

Hello Jean,
A pleasing composition. Perfect light and color, with good DOF, POV, and details..The subject is well seen from this great BG as well.
Very well done and TFS!

Hi Jean

A very beautiful butterfly you share with us. The POV is excellent with very good saturation. Nicely composed with sharp, clear detail. Good work. :-)

Great shot but in MY opinion your identification is wrong.
It's probably Issoria lathonia.
Anyway - great picture. Thanks

Chris

salut Jean Jacques
et content de te retrouver sur TE !!
avec de tres belles images.
concernant celle-ci, je pense plutôt à un Tabac d'Espagne (mais à verifier).
une tres jolie compo
