[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is one of the best known butterflies of Europe. It is widespread and common. It can be found in almost every habitat and any altitude. It is particularly common in towns and villages where its opportunistic foodplant grows in plenty on disturbed ground. Additionally it is one of the first butterflies out of hibernation in spring and flies well into the autumn before hibernating.

Nice capture of this beautiful butterfly, Rimantas.
The colours and details are excellent.

Hallo Rimantas
A bright cheerful summery scene, that is pleasing to the eyes. The colours are rich and striking and just the kind one would love to see in cold winter time, which we are having here in South Africa at the moment. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hi Rimantas,
Excellent capture with rich colours and POV.


A beautiful image if a beautiful species. Natural colors and sharp focus makes the image more beautiful.
