[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Here an other of my back garden butterflies.
It is the "zandoogje" in Dutch. A member of the Satyridae family. I am no sure which one it is. Anybody a suggestion??? I think it is this one.

(On the top left is an other insect.)

It is family of the Maniola jurtina / Bruin zandoogje
and the Pararge aegeria / Bont zandoogje
and the Pyronia tithonus / oranje zandoogje

I quite like the fact that you did not crop it too close, shows the environment a little better. Good shot and gdood detail.

Hi Hendrik,
a wonderful butterfly with good sharpness sitting in this butterfly-bush without any blossoms, poor one, no nectar!
Very good sharpness and arrangement, thanks and bye

Flying visit - I'm packing for another two week field trip. You asked which species - it's Pararge aegeria. Nice shot, but I think the frame's too heavy and the wrong colour :)

Hello Hendrik,
I like the composition of this butterfly because it is different than the classical zoomed butterfly picture that get to see every day on TN. We can feel better how the natural environment of the butterflies can be.
Well done !!!

Hi Hendrik
