This photo is part of a series for which I wanted to recreate a mysterious and galactic atmosphere inspired by this insect.
Indeed, "l'Empuse pennée", in its juvenile form and by its graphics, reminds me of a monster coming from the deepest space.
In spite of some ideas, the composition of this photo was not calculated in advance.
Only once I got there, with my eye in the viewfinder, looking for the light filtering through the bushes, I was able to visualize the effect and refine my framing.
The main difficulty was to make the most of the good light conditions which only lasted a few seconds.
Not being a fan of long post-processing sessions, this one was limited to the usual contrast, clarity, sharpness and vibrance...
The white balance and exposure were set at the time of shooting.
