Hello Trekkers,

This is my 1st butterfly shot made in Ireland, it shows the species Speckled Wood (Pararge aegeria). Although a common b-fly everywhere in Europe (including my home country, Hungary), I managed to capture it quite rarely, because (s)he doesn't sit on one flower too much. I had luck with this specimen: (s)he was quiet and was decently waiting me for doing some pics.

Photo: taken in the park of Mallow town, Cork county; in shutter priority mode. PP: adjusting levels and contrast.

I hope you'll like the pic.

Hello Laszlo,

I was expecting your first Irish butterfly to be green and with a shamrock logo on each wing! Fantastic capture of this Speckled Wood on Irish greenery. Impressive sharpness throughout and in fine light producing rich and earthy hues. Well done!

Hi Laszlo.
My congratulations on first butterfly image here. It is really fine and you have used excellent macro converter perfectly for presentation of the beautiful specimen at so nice manner. Wingspread of the butterfly is the best as well as your POV and exposure and reproduction of every colour tone are precise too. Excellent job. TFS and best regards.

Hello Laszlo,
of course I like it.
have you moved from your beloved fungus and start with butterflies? :-)
It turned out more than well, very good sharpness with tons of details of the wings and body, I can see every hair. The exposure and WB is pretty perfect.
Well done, old friend.
