... den hast du auf dem Rhododendron gut erwischt. Die Art war in Südtirol in diesem Jahr erfreulicherweise an sehr vielen Orten außerordentlich häufig zu beobachten. Die schnellen Flieger haben leider vor meiner Linse nicht so anständig Platz genommen wie dein Exemplar.
1A-Farben und Superschärfe!
Schöne Grüße, Peter

Excellent details, colours and exposure and a really good dof that provides a natural oof bg.
Have a good day,

Beautiful picture of the Colias Palaeno.It is a real beauty with yellow wings edged with pink.You have used good POV to show off the beauty of it to perfection. Good sharpness and details and nice blurred background.

very well done, this is great shot with excellent detail, as usual. The markings on this butterfly are very striking and your composition shows them off to the fullest. Vivid colour and perfect DOF.

A very effective POV, that bring us an excellent view of this specimen.
I like so much the rich texture seen on its wings, the little hairs and the curious red strip all along the profile.
You got a beautiful effect with the DOF choice used and the nice gradations at the background.
My compliments and thanks for share it.

I love the Clouded Yellow butterflies but unfortunately they're rarely seen here. Your close capture is outstanding showing very sharp details and lovely colours. I like its pose and the green soft background is perfect. Excellent composition!
Many thanks and best wishes, Ulla

I don't know how many shots I have taken of C palaeno this year but none are to my satisfaction: either not sharp or sharp but the specimen was worn.
In this shot you show both excellent sharpness and a very fresh fine specimen. Ijnterestingly it has not folded its wings correctly, a forewing being bent to show the black border.
First class composition and natural BBG.
TFs and have a nice weekend.

What a fine capture of this Clouded Yellow, Peter! The colours are fantastic.
The image is so very sharp every detail on the wings is crystal clear.
I love the composition as a whole.
Thanks for sharing yet another masterpiece.

Erstaunlich ist doch die Färbung dieses Hochmoor-Gelblings mit der rosa Bordüre und den gleichfarbigen Fühlern. Gut getroffen mit dem Rhododendron im Hintergrund.
Auch mir ist es noch nie gelungen diesen Schmetterling gut zu fotografieren.
Herzlichen Dank für das schöne Bild.
Einen schönen Sonntag noch

Excellent shot of this rare Lycaenidae. Perfect colours and composition. Unfortunately the upper wing is broken a little bit ;-)
I've never seen this species - you're very lucky guy!

Once again you show us a rare beauty! You must be spending a long time on trips in the mountains to find all these species. It's a shame they are endangered or even extinct in many areas.
As usually your POV and composition are great. The butterfly is presented very well, standing on a plant and having plenty of open space in front of it. I like the slight diagonal placing of the plant and subject. They are perfectly emphasized by the well defocused background.
You captured warm tones of greens and yellows. They make this picture look appealing! I especially like the crimson fringes on wings and the same crimson color on legs and antennae. I think this is a unique mark which helps identifying the species.
I find the contrast to be well adjusted, enhancing the details in the subject. The dark background contrasts nicely with the brighter butterfly! There is also some nice chromatic contrast between red and green which adds even more appeal.
The same excellent control of light as in all your other shots. The details were preserved perfectly in both highlights and shadows. The light is soft and it casts no harsh shadows.
By accurately focusing on the butterfly you obtained sharp details in the subject and deep enough DOF to include the whole body of the butterfly while keeping the background OOF.
Wonderfully captured and presented. The notes are also well written! Thank you for sharing!
With Friendly Regards,

ein sehr huebscher Falter stellst du uns hier vor. Prima hast du ihn festgehalten, die Schaerfe und der Focus sitzt genau richtig.
Excellent ist die Bildgestaltung und der Bildschnitt.
simply stunning colours, details and composition! Another addition to that fabulous coffee-table book (I never thought of it as something to relieve boredom! -- A good coffee table book has wonderful big photos in it, so that every day I can open it to a new piece of art!)

I do not know is it possible to reproduce the butterfly better. (I am not quite sincere. I know it is impossible.) Terrific reproduction of all tiny hair and other beautiful details of this charming butterfly and plant. Soft light and perfectly saturated colours are fantastic. Cropping and composition are outstanding as always. Thanks for given pleasure. Bravo.
