What a bird! Colored with every color. I have a bird book of India that our good friend, now in Iran, sent me. I shall look it up. No worry about saturated over. Perfect.

That’s a red one just has to see. I enjoy the silhouette effect. Down pat for a top draw.

Very nice Luciano. I have always been impressed by your work. Do you frame in the viewfinder or do cropping or blowups?

Perfectly approached and composed - excellent image, Ram.
Identification „Vanessa cardui“ might be clearly considered to be changed into „Vanessa indica“, the closely related but less widely distributed species from the Indian mountains.

Dear Ram,

well composed, well approached capture of this cute and very agile butterfly of the mountains.

Regarding the identification: instead of the similar looking but more brightly colored common and wide spread Aglais urticae, I might suggest to consider the Himalayan species "Aglais caschmirensis (Kollar, 1848)".

Thank you! With best whishes and greetings from the Alps to the Himalayas !

Hello Silvio,
eye catching capture of this exquisitely shaped female of Meleageria daphis, very clear and well detailed.
It is a species that has become very rare in our region where it has been described for the first time by Denis & Schiffermüller in 1775.
You are lucky to find and to show it. Thank you! With best regards,
Peter

Hello Laszlo,
impressing landscape photography of trees mirrored in a lake's amazingly calm surface.
Mounting the scenery upside down has definitely added an increased sensation of magical attraction with deep emotional appeal.
Thank you my friend. Thank you also for your visit and kind words to some of my postings a few weeks ago. Hope you are fine and doing well.
With best regards,
Peter

P.S.: Have reduced the amount of time I am spending in front of a computer in favour of spending as much time as possible outdoors I have become an infrequent visitor also to our site. But I do enjoy coming here, discovering stunning presentations of nature photography by good old and new friends.

Liebe Anne,
beeindruckend detailreiches Foto des recht scheuen Grossen Waldportiers, im fortgeschrittenen Sommer bereits ein wenig abgeflogen. Prima Dokumentation dieses recht selten gewordenen Falters trockenwarmer grasiger Wälder. Auf dem Eichkogel im Süden von Wien, den wir vor wenigen Jahren im Sommer gemeinsam aufsuchten, hat er sich in diesen Tagen wieder blicken lassen. Er fliegt dort gemeinsam mit dem Weißen Waldportier B. circe. Oft verjagen die Falter beider Arten einander in schnellem Flug gegenseitig von ihren Revieren am Waldrand. Ein spannender Anblick.
Herzliche Grüße aus Wien,
Peter
