The Small Heath Coenonympha pamphilus is a butterfly species belonging to the family Nymphalidae, (subfamily Satyrinae, commonly known as "the Browns"). It is widespread in Eurasia and northwestern Africa, preferring drier habitats than other Coenonymphae. The larval host plants are grasses, notably Sheep's Fescue and rough meadow grass Poa trivialis.

Hi Jiri. You captured the texture really well. The DOF works well for you and blurs the appropriate parts of the plant he's on. Splendid colours and focus and the lighting is right on. Perfect shot. TFS Trevor

Hi Jiri.
You have reflected hairs of the cute butterfly with all details. Sharpness as well as direct POV are excellent and impressive surroundings (sharp leaves and nicely blurred BG) are perfect supplement for the fine insect. TFS and kind regards.
