Good evening to all
If I tell you that this is a picture of yesterday, you do not believe me, though I have not yet searched in the archives and found this beautiful butterfly called IPHICLIDES PODALIRIUS or more commonly, the steep, to get some information about this butterfly, I recommend this site for info
I find it pretty because its colors are varied and I love the wings of a jagged aspet.
And how do you find??

Bonjour Edith,
You have made a very beautiful portrait of this Swallowtail butterfly. The composition and colours are absolutely first class, with impressive depth of field (f/14.0 = good) and a nice frame. I especially like the wonderful blue on the margins of the hindwings. Although I think we can all say what the species is, a few notes about the location and any post-processing would be even better. Thanks.

Coucou Edith,
très beau papillon effectivement, j'aime particulièrement le bleu électrique, excellent focus et grande profondeur de champs, c'est une nouvelle fois une très belle composition,
bravo pour cette photo printanière

Hi Edith,
Just marking this wonderful post for the moment, lest I miss it, and will come back with a proper critique later.

What a wonderful save for posting today. While it shows the butterfly so well, it still retains a nice quiet, not too harsh, way about it. A pleasant photo...and the snows flies outside my window one more day...

Bonsoir Edith,
Beautiful capture from the summer of this Swallowtail butterfly, I. podalirius. Nice sharpness on the hindwings and pleasing POV and composition against an OOF green natural BG. Bravo!

salut edith
permets moi d'insister mais il va vraiment falloir que tu traites les parties bruitées du BG,surtout si tu veux les faire developper en 20x30!!!
va donc falloir que je me deplace encore.
bon sinon c'est vrai qu'il est beau et bien mis en valeur.
j'ai aussi tapé dans les archives.

Bonjour Edith,
Nice to see your excellent posting of butterfly!
good pose with good sharpness, vivid colour and details always

Buena toma Edith,
Muy buen detalle y profundidad. Los colores de la Iphiclides muy vistosos.

Ciao Edith,
la tua foto è davvero molto piacevole e delicata.
I colori sono molto naturali, in particolare le macchie celesti delle ali posteriori che sembrano brillare.
Splendida anche la composizione.

Hi Edith.
You managed to catch a very nice specimen of Swallowtail at great scenery. I also like the composition and framing of the image. Details and colours are perfect too. May be some parts of the butterfly image are soft a little bit but it is not a point. My compliments and TFS.

superbe papillon, même si il vient de tes cartons.....
il a c'est vrai de très jolies couleurs,
bien net ta petite bête,
très réussi ma didith
gros bisousssssssss

Hello Edith,
What a lovely insect, so nicely captured!
I like the point of view, and the insect is captuyred with fine details and presented in this dynamic composition...
Good natural colours, a fine feeling of depth as the insect is well separated from the background!
