[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
On road to Montenegro, after short visit in Bosnia, next stop was in ancient and beautifull city of Dubrovnik in Croatia. We were there for only few hours unfortunatelly. Old town, fortress, medieval streets. All blurred in one stream of pictures in my brain. In big garden full of flowers, we admired view of Adriatic guarded by two towers. Then we met this guy sitting on stone handrail of old bridge. Polygonia c-album? I'm not sure. Looks like, but who knows ;-)

Thanks to Jacob for ID! This is Polygonia egea.

Muy nítida macro querido amigo con gran colorido y luminosidad, contrastando la mariposa sobre el fondo grisáceo.
Me encanta el POV y el encuadre inclinado que elegiste, creando una estética imagen.
Qué apertura utilizaste para lograr tan buen foco... F8?.
Un gran saludo... Ricardo

Very sharp macro dear friend with great colors and brightness, contrasting the butterfly on the grizzly bottom.
I love POV and the inclined framing that you chose, creating an aesthetic image.
What aperture did you use to achieve so good focus... F8?.
Best greetings... Ricardo

That was nice of the b'fly to come out and see you while you visited his home town. I like your POV Greg, as we can see his hairy back. And we can that is was sunny too.
It's windy but warm and sunny here today.

Hello Grzegorz,
Beautiful shot. I really like the contrast between the butterfly and the rock it is sitting on and it makes an excellent background.
Great shot,
