[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
After all the orchids from sicily, a local beauty from the netherlands this time. I was looking for teh Orange tip butterfly of which Cardamine pratensis is the preffered host when the sun came through the early morning fog. The sun set the whole field on fire so I picked a nice Cardamine pratensis flower with dewdrops and shot it through the fog against the sun, with the results as you see it.

Hope you enjoy it

Hello Jeroen.
A lovely capture of these beautiful flower. Excellent composition and sharp details. Thanks a lot for sharing.Best regards Siggi

Hi Jeroen,

an artistic presentation of nature, a very original and interesting idea.The flower's outline, beaded with dewdrops, is very well distinguishable from the background in this against the light image.Very beautiful colours, soft and warm at the same time.



Bonjour Jeroen,
Très bonne maitrise de la technique permettant d'apprécier le sujet dans des conditions peu communes.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
