From my last visit to Lipinitsa I understand that all butterflies are friends and they love playing and sucking to the same flowers.
Many differend kinds all together.
I've got many of them in my archive and day by day I will try to post them all
And we begin with these two little friends that sharing the same thistle.
To the left the Medow Brown (male) and in the top the Satyridae! Melanargia galathea (Linnaeus, 1758)
I watching them for some minutes and I saw that they are sharing many of the thistles on this area.
Finaly I shot them and here they are

Hello Thodoris,
thistle flowers are very attractive for butterflies. You have excellently used this circumstance to present two different Satyrinae species,
Satyrus ferula (2 large eye spots) and Melanargia galathea. Thank you for sharing this interesting picture!
Best wishes, Peter

Very sharp and great colors and light. I love it that you captured two of them. Wonderful!!

Hi Thodoris,
Wonderful shot of these two beauties sucking on the same thistle. Very neat and sharp image with superb natural lighting and fine focus. The subjects stands out well from the OOF BG and looks majestic. Excellent POV to capture the two and very nicely composed. Looking forward to your other posts too. Kudos.

bonjour thodoris
celui de droite est un petit peu trop exposé mais les deux sont bien dans le champ,le BG est bien flou et les met bien en valeur.

Quite nice picture. I like also the flower ;-)
