Awesome shot Yves! I love the angle on this one and the eye contact.. you couldn't have asked for a better pose. The tones, detail and compo are simply beautiful.. what a great capture.

Yves Langlois

Thank you Heather. Rarely that butterfly gives me enough time to choose an angle. For that one I was down on my knees six feets from it. An awesome photo op.

Debra Plett

The detail is amazing Yves. I went into the expand mode to check out the eye…super shot. I love the feathery effect along the body. Nice lighting for sure.

Yves Langlois

Thank you Debra. I nail that one with a great satisfaction and a pretty big smile.

Jenny Stevens

Delightful angle on this shot Yves. Love the brilliant colours.

Yves Langlois

Thank you for the comments Jenny. Quite proud of that one.

Clifford Dupuis

what an amazing shot. this one shows awesome detail and great color tones along with an beautiful DOF. Very nicely captured

Yves Langlois

Thanks Clifford. Usualy that butterfly doesn't let me approach too close. That one didn't. I had plenty of time to choose an angle and I was as close as the 400mm can accept.

The guy was so cooperative that I was able to do an unusual shot at a very usual butterfly.
