On flying insects-12
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|On insects in flight-12:|
this Map butterfly (Araschnia levana, Landkärtchen. Nymphalidae) is not even bothering to roll up its proboscis while flying since it hops from flower to flower. Its abdomen is held upwards, it serves as a flight controller.
Technical stuff: 1/2'000 sec, f/5.6, ISO 400 tele lens 500 mm eq. full daylight and no flash, serial pictures.
To increase the space between the butterfly and the frame I added in PS some background by stamping, I hope you don't mind. The animal was left untouched by this procedure.

Hi Dietrich,just a blurred in the top of the right wing,but the result is another time amazing,a species that i never seen live,very well done! Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano
Yesssss, this is much-much better than the photo I just commented, sharpness is ok here and the pose is very spectacular, something you wouldn't expect from a butterfly when you're looking at them in the usual resting position. Nice work, congratulations!
Kind regards from Ireland, László
