[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

The Ringlet (Aphantopus hyperantus) is a butterfly in the family Nymphalidae. It is only one of the numerous "ringlet" butterflies in the tribe Satyrini.
In central Europe this is a rather widespread and common species in mature deciduous woodlands. It is found as far south as northern Spain where I've never found it and northern Greece. It prefers sunny spots in woodland that is otherwise dark or with only dappled sunlight. It loves bramble blossom and can often be found in good numbers feeding at this plant.

Hi Pawel.
Beautiful capture of this butterfly on fine flowers. Ideal light with nice natural colors. Very good POV shows sharp details and good view on his "rings" on wings. Composition would have been better if butterfly not the middle, I think. Well done. Thanks for sharing.
Best regards

Hello Pawel,
A fine shot of the Ringlet posed on this small pink flowers. Despite the fact that it seems to be whitespread I almost never see it in my region. Natural and fine butterfly-shot.
Kind regards

Beautiful photo of this butterfly in splendid colours and great level of detail!. Splendid contrasting and composition. Perfect POV.
