Lieber Peter,
Deine Cinxia ist eine kleine Ueberraschung, haben wir doch seit langem kein Bild von Dir gesehen. In Stoecklscher Art fotografiert, man kann es nicht übersehen.
Interessanter tiefer Blickwinkel gewählt, und so schön in Szene gesetzt auf der feinen Dianthus-Blume.Ich sehe nach dem Foto-Datum, das der Falterschon vor einiger Zeit gelebt hat:-).
Hoffe natürlich wieder mal eines Deiner Fotos zu sehen, ich selber werde mir Mühe geben, auch wieder etwas zu zeigen.
Mit herzlichen Grüssen und nochmals Frohe Ostern

Hello Peter
Fantastic close up of this Glanville fritillary! Colour, detail and DOF are excellent. The colour of these butterflies are really stunning, I'm always amazed at their wing pattern. I love your butterfly collection.

Hi Peter,
Excellent photo in rather difficult light conditions. Your exposure management was perfect - you managed to keep the details on the darker parts, while avoided overexposure on the sky. Bravo! Sharpness on the wing is also perfect. Lovely photo!
Kind regards from Ireland, László
