Hello Rimantas,

I've only seen two fritillaries all summer .... and you've managed two at the same time on the same flower ... and in fine light .... and in very good focus .... and with a finely engineered bokeh .... and with magical hues. Very well done, I say!



Fine composition! The flower consists of butterflies...! Good work!
