Finally we got some nice days, full of sunshine and mild weather.
Therefore there are still quite a lot of butterflies around (Vanessa cardui, Vanessa atalanta, Nymphalis C-slbum, Colias, even some Lycaenidae..)
Here we have a Vanessa cardui (Painted Lady, Belle-Dame, Distelfalter). This butterfly has been presented several times on TN, so there is no need to present it again.
I took this picture in the Botanical Garden of Bern.
The light was very bright and it was not easy to take a decent picture because of the white flower

Hello Anne,
What makes this shot of the Painted Lady unusual is the fine composition on the daisy flower that we see nicely placed from the side, almost like an angel on a white cloud!
In addition the butterfly is razor sharp and set against a pleasing OOF natural green BG.
Well done and thanks,
Ivan

Hi Anne,
i have to agree with Ivan, it is a lovely composition! The creamy white of the flowrs petals is also very nice and very well exposed too. Super sharp detail on the butterfly and perfect DOF.
Paul

Hello Anne
I think Ivan and Paul really summed up my thoughts on your picture...it is a lovely pov with the painted lady almost cradled within the petals..the sharpness is pin sharp.

Hi Anne,
The butterfly has come out very crisp and sharp with good POV. TFS.

Siempre sorprendentes y elegantes los colores y las formas de los dibujos de las alas de V. cardui. Has sabido plasmarlos bien en esta toma. El enfoque es bueno en el motivo principal y la base que soporta al insecto muy adecuada.

Saludos Anne.

Hi Anne!

I believe that it was not easy with the white petals. Here we see the limits of technology: while our eye still captures the details in the very bright parts of the flower, the camera can't render them. If you close down the exposure too much, the rest of the picture will be too dark to be corrected properly in the editing software. It's a composition where we have to accept the burnt whites. We can do some attenuation in the post processing by using the pen at about 6% and by chosing a color tone of the petals near the bright whites.

The butterfly is marvellous and shown in its wonderful and smooth colors. I'm impressed by the richness of the details and it seems to me that the flower spreads out its petals like we would spread out our fingers to allow that delicate creature to have a rest...
Kind regards

Markus

You managed great sharpness on your butterfly, Anne. I love all the detail. The greens of the out of focus background set off the subject nicely.

Hello Anne,
WHat a beautiful composition! I love the white petals embracing Vanessa while she's displaying her beautifully patterned underwings. Beautiful colours and very sharp details. It stands out very nicely against the background too.
Many thanks, Ulla

Bravo Anel, c'est du grand art,
La lumière blanche captée par les pétales éclairent doucement le papillon. Les couleurs sont sompteuses et les détails rendus avec une très grande netteté. J'aime beaucoup l'arrière plan lumineux, qui met la scène en valeur.
Amicalement,
Hervé

Hi Anne,
Very beautiful butterfly and you have captured it in all its splendour. Superb lighting, exposure, sharpness and colours. I like the darkish BG and the white petals of the flower which presents a fine contrast. Excellent POV and very nicely composed. Kudos.

Hi Anne

This is a terrific macro shot from you, one that presents this beautiful scene superbly!
I love the perfect focus on the butterfly and the sharp details you managed to pull out here. Also, the side POV give a great angle while the DOF is just perfect for this types of shots.
As a result, the BG is wonderfully blurred and it also contrast brilliantly with the subject.
All-in-all: a terrific composition!

Bravo and TFS

Bonjour Anne,
Cette macro est extra! D'abord les détails et la netteté de ton papillon sont simplement parfaits. Ensuite la fleur! Quelles belles nuances et un superbe contraste sans sur-exposition! Finalement ton arrière plan fait bien resortir ton sujet!
Une réussite...
BRAVO
