Butterfly on a mango

Well I posted two butterfly pictures taken at the Artis Zoo butterfly garden before. This is a third on. This butterfly (no clue which brand :-) is enjoying the sugar from a mango. Anyway, there are many butterfly images here on TL, which are doubtless much better than my posting. Neverthelerss I like the intense yellow of the mango too.

Enjoyed this picture hope you too, if not let me know why and how to improve.

PP work:
Shot in RAW. Adjusted contrast and saturation (minor). Cropped, converted to JPEG, resized and sharpened. Add frame and text.

Bonjour Hans,
La mangue te fait un arrière plan de choix ! :)
Un cliché lumineux et aux couleurs vives qui sent bon l'été. Bravo.
Bonne journée.


Mango is a delicious fruit. Butterfly is enjoying the visit to mango.

Bonjour Hans, je ne sais pas trop sur quelle fruit se trouve le papillon, mais il fait un très belle arrière plan. Le papillon en ressort davantage. Bravo Gilles

Hiya Hansie

Well my friend this lovely little butterfly posed perfectly for you on the mango as it gives the perfect BG. LOvely sharp detail and nice matching framing too

TFS regards Helen

Een zeer mooie vlinder, Hans ! Posting 600 nog wel, en die mag er wezen.
Die mango vormt een fantastische achtergrond. Zeer bijpassend. Wat een kleuren.
Het valt niet mee om goed te zien hoe het met z'n achterpoten zit. Het lijkt alsof de vleugels niet goed gemonteerd zitten, maar jij van cityhopper zet dat wel even recht. Toch? ;-)

Hi Hans,
The mango makes a great backdrop to show the nice sharp details and colours that you have captured here, you can even see some of the texture of the mango it's that sharp, well done my friend there is nothing to be omproved here in My Opinion.
Regards Andy

Hello Hans

Perfect capture of this lovely butterfly. I like the nice colour contrasts and of course the detail is excellent and the framing and presentation adds the final touch.

This just JUMPS off the page Hansie!! WHAT color!! The yellow nicely contrasts the darker butterfly! I NEVER thought of this way to attract a butterfly! duh?? I will have to try this one at the end of the summer, when they all come to my house! Very nice and very different for you!

Stunning colours, Hans -- and the details are perfect

hello dear hans

lovely yellow and red and black...
nice closeup
texture / pulp of mango can be seen
good sharpness and light
well saturated


As you said Hansie, that deep rich yellow makes for the best possible BG and all natural as well - very attractive.

Great contrast Hans.
Yellow alomost orange mango and butterfly on it.
Looks very interesting with black border as well.
Great shot my friend.

A very different BG that usual.
And a good capture too.

Hello Hans,
The yellow mango provides a good contrast to the sharp butterfly. I love taking pics of insects, and this certainly is a beauty. Best regards, Danilo
