Questo post, della mia farfalla preferita, lo dedico alla mia giovane amica Alessia Rossi( Alexia ), sperando di farle cosa gradita. So che anche lei, come me, ama il bianco e nero.

Il Podalirio (Iphiclides Podalirius) è uno splendido Lepidottero diffuso in Europa ed Asia Centrale. E’ una farfalla legata ai climi miti, perciò raramente si può trovarla a Nord della Germania. Può raggiungere un’apertura alare di 7 cm.
Ama gli spiazzi assolati, i prati, gli incolti, specie se fiancheggiati da siepi.
Questa farfalla bellissima, dalle inconfondibili ali chiare terminanti a coda di rondine e ornate di strisce nere, presenta due generazioni annue: gli adulti sfarfallano a maggio, ed i loro figli si involano ad agosto. E’ possibile infatti vederli nutrirsi sulle ultime fioriture della Buddleia a settembre inoltrato.


Dedicated to my young friend Alessia Rossi( Alexia ). I hope she likes it. I know that she loves the white and black.

The Scarce Swallowtail (Iphiclides Podalirius) is a butterfly found in gardens, fields and open woodlands. It is found in places with sloe thickets and particularly orchards. It is also called Sail Swallowtail or Pear-tree Swallowtail. is widespread throughout Europe with the exception of the northern parts.
The Podalirius is my favorite butterfly.

Ciao Vanda,

Wonderful macro capture of the Scarce Swallowtail butterfly!
It is indeed a great dedication to Alessia. She would be very happy to see it.
The details of the butterfly's body are very well shown. The sharpness and POV are perfect with nice use of the daylight. Contrast between the B&W striped butterfly and the purple colored Buddleia flowers, is simply wonderful. The blurred BG is nice.
Well done!

thanks and regards,
Paras Bhalla

Ciao Vanda,

Piacevole sorpresa!
Eccellente svolto e svolgono questa macro. Le mie congratulazioni.
Una bella giornata,

Hello Vanda,

A fine close-up of this beautiful and interesting swallowtail. The details of its patterned wings are well captured, as are its legs, firmly clasping the buddleia.
I like your off-centre composition and the effective, narrow dof.

I saw something similar, on holiday, but have not reviewed the images yet.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)
I have just been browsing the site after a couple of weeks holiday. Thank you so much for your interest and kind critiques.

Magnifico macro de fantastica nitidez y color
Buen trabajo

HI Vanda, this is perfect and wonderful in all its ways.

Hi Vanda,
Impressive capture, good use of the zoom - The focus looks nice and precise. An interesting looking butterfly, the details and patterns seem to stand out well in the afternoon light. Not quite sure if the frame works, but the photo itself looks excellent from where I'm sitting.

TFS,
Scott.

Ciao Vanda,
prima di ogni altra cosa complimenti per la splendida macro.
Vero che è una bella soddisfazione?
Adoro questa farfalla. è abbastanza tranquilla non come la macaone. Nei prossimi post capirai perchè affermo ciò.
Un abbraccio mari

Bonjour Vanda
Very nice shot: perfect sharpness and composition, and beautiful colours.To give even more impact,I think I should have tried to clone out the plant in the background; but I like very much the light coming through the wings of the farfalla (I know now why we have in french pasta of this name...)
Nice dedication to Alessia
Ciao Vanda

Bonjour Vanda.
Superbe netteté qui permet une bonne observation des détails sur ce beau papillon.
Les couleurs et contraste sont aussi parfait.
Bonne journée.

Urs

Interesting point of view, Vanda. Nice focus and DOF, and lovely colors. I didn´t like the frame color, but overall a great job. Congratulations and TFS, my friend.

Have a nice weekend,
Bruno

Cia Vanda. Gia nella composizione sei imbattibile se poi la fai girare intorno ad un Podalirio allora rasenti la perfezione. La farfalla è ben dettagliata e contrastata. Il POV ti ha permesso di otteneere una ottima DOF. Complimenti.
