[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is another shot of the painted lady (Vanessa cardui).
I posted one earlier so you can find info on the species there.
This one was refilling for the migration (hopefully, as it may well not migrate and die).
It was nice meeting this great butterfly once more this year.

Hi Catalin,

A nice capture with a good POV the focus is on the left forewing and with f5 there is not enough dof to get the body and eyes in focus,your other posting of the painted lady is excellent in all ways,I see that you have turned off your smileys,but hope you can do / agree somehow with my comment

tfs and have a nice weekend,

ps I have been a few times in Galway with my vessel and I liked the publife in town.
