[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The land cards flies out, from month 5, and month 6, and of from month 7, up to month 8. The butterflies settle on flowers, and the caterpillars find there settles one large company on nettles, on which the eggs are chain on each other. The land card is small type butterfly, with a motley drawing. The animals which turned out to be themselves in spring, the under ground is red brown, at the summer form, the black hurries the drawings. The name land card comes from a lot of lines existing drawing on the lower part of the wings, which think a lot to a country card. This lives mostly by wet bunch edges, hedges and banks of little rivers.

Yes I met her in the Biesbos a dutch park in Dordrecht my hometown.
I was chasing after her and She was not easy to photograph. I think when people see me doing that, taking photo's, they realy must laugh.
But anyway I think I have made a good composition here, with a good dof, I hope you like it.

The composition is really good, just like the POV. The light could've been better though because the white flowers seem to be overexposed.

Beste jaap,
In dit soort van fotografie bent u werkelijk een koning, daar moet ik van leren, en zal ik ooit doen, als ik werkelijk een gave heb Jaap, in mijn leven is het dat ik steeds wil leren, maar zeker geen naijver heb ten opzichte van iemand anders.
Het zijn schatjes van foto's u mag er trots op zijn en dit is gemeend man!
Very great job!

Very nice shot Jaap. Lovely light and depth of colour. Well composed with sharp details. Good work. TFS.

I love the point of view here, Jaap. The colors are very lovely too. Nice capture!

Hello Jaap, very nice indeed. Good and interesting POV with effective DOF covering the span. Very good placement in frame also, well done.

Hi Jaap,
Nice shot of this beautiful butterfly, nice POV to shoot from this angle and excellent DOF to keep the butterfly and flower in focus. I can see the thought that you've put into this shot. If people can laugh as you say they might then it's they who are missing out on the beauty of this world.
Best wishes,

HI Jaap, nice shot. The composition is good and it's a nice colourful picture. Well done.

Hi Jaap,
An excellent frame filling composition! I love the colors. The light in this shot was very soft and has given beautiful colors. Sharp detail with a very nice OOF backround. This looks great!
