[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Six-Spot Burnet - Zygaena filipendulae (Linnaeus, 1758)

Wingspan 30-38 mm.

This is the commonest of Britain's day-flying Burnet moths, and is found throughout Britain, with a coastal bias in the North.

Occupying meadows, woodland clearings and sea-cliffs, it flies from June to August.

The larvae feed mainly on bird's-foot trefoil (Lotus corniculatus).

Hello Alina,

It is not easy to photograph this butterfly du to the metalic reflections of the wings. You have made it very well chosing and inspired DOF. Morover you have rendered well that reflection mentioned above. Colors of the wings as well as those of the background are well saturated and vivid. The sharp image shows very good details of insect's body and wing pattern.

Thank you for sharing,

hello Alina
