good evening has all
I was not to publish this evening but I vien to see that I aipas to show you my BLUE ARGUS in this form.
I like it because one can as well distinguish the blue color from the top as the various colours of the lower part
I believe that it will be there last diffusion of this butterfly and for all information, if you did not see it yet, look at my preceding diffusions, you find his identity and all there that relates to it or as I say it each time will see in < the butterflies of france>
sincerely has to you all and all

Hello Edith. You have captured a good colourful shot of this beautiful butterfly. excellent colours and fine detail. your sharp focusing makes all the details stand out so well. .With a nice POV/DOF. welldone TFS.

Bonsoir Edith,
Magnificent capture!
I like so much the dark backgroud that really stand out the bright blue of the butterfly, as well as the flowers.
You got very sharp details and textures on the insect, and the focus on it is the right one.
Felicitacions et merci du partager.

Hola Edith,
preciosa macro y color,
detalles y sensacional pov,

I admire the saturated colors in this shot. Sharpness and exposure are good. The butterfly is quite beautiful.I do find the composition a bit disjointed. Because the flash has caused all of the background to appear black, the one yellow partial flower is a bit distracting... to me... and maybe only to me : ) I tried an alternate version. I'll post it tomorrow if you'd like.

Hello Edith,
THis is a lovely composition showing the Blue Argus in a fine pose on a thistle. Excellent DOF and sharp details but personally I don't always like using the flash as it changes the natural colour and this blue is too bright.
TFS and regards, Ulla

Salut Edith,
A wonderul photo with such great details and colors. The flash illuminated the colors of the b'fly perfectly and also showed its shiny coat. I like the way the color of the b'fly contrast with all the other colors in the photo.

Vraiment très beau, tellement clair et d'une grande netteté, les couleurs et la composition sont superbes.
Bravo et merci pour tes messages

salut edith
en effet ce papillon a un superbe bleu a l'intérieur ce qui lui donne tout son charme,le cadrage est parfait et le fond noir fait bien ressortir le bleu

Bonjour Edith, on ne se lasse pas de ces magnifiques argus et encore moins des photos d'une pareille qualité, les couleurs tout comme le background sont sublimes, focus parfait et encadrement idéal, très jolie composition
Tu dis " encore lui" moi je dis "encore, encore, encore"

Bonjour Edith,
Quelle belle photo! les couleurs sont magnifiques, en particulier le bleu du papillon avec des reflets rosés...
Excellents mise au point. Bravo,


Hi Edith
Very nice captured, good colours, focus, sharpness and very nice butterfly.

Hi Edith
I like this one better then the previous. It is not so dark. Nice colors good composition and good sharpness. Perfect buckground. I like the yellow flower in the corner (there is more light on the photo) on the other hand it could be interesting thing to remowe it (very individaual thing) But as I told you I like the flower ;-)
Best wishes

Edith - such vivid colors!! Breathtaking! Great clarity and bg - superb!

Cheers, Penny

hello Edith

Bonjour Edith - what a beautifully coloured butterfly you have for us today.
He is nice and sharp and such a pretty blue. I do like him very much

Beautiful one, Edith...

TFS and see you:-)

Salut Edith
what a colour
just perfect BG, not black but very dark, lovely compo too and great sharpness

Hello Edith
You captured the blue in this little Blue Argus so well. The colours really came out rich and detail sharp. Even the plant has nice detail. Excellent POV and DOF. The dark background helps to show off the butterfly even more.
TFS Janice

Bonjour Edith, j'ai beaucoup de retard dans la vision des photos sur TN. Celle ci est parfaitement réussie et la couleur de l"azuré" sur le sombre bg, attire le regard. Mes félicitations, didier.

Hi Edith,
Very sharp capture of this heavenly blue coloured butterfly. Good composition. The yellow flowers in the bottom right matching with the colour of the frame give a dimension to the picture.
