Hello My Dear TN Friends!

This is my 400th picture on TN. Long time, many happy hours and great people. I want to thank you all for advices, friendshipo and your words!

Why butterflies? I think everybody likes them. They're colorfull, beautifull and acceptable for everyone ;-) I chose this sixteen from many pictures from this spring, summer and autumn. I hope you like it!

Colours are very good antidote for grey winter in Poland. And for low mood too.

Look at my workshop to add numbers to names.

1 Melanargia galathea
2 Apatura iris
3 Aglais urticae
4 Papilio machaon
5 Dira aegeria
6 Vanessa cardui
7 Issoria lathonia
8 Colias crocea
9 Thymelicus sylvestris
10 Vanessa atalanta
11 Inachis io
12 Araschnia levana
13 Polyommatus icarus
14 Maniola jurtina
15 Heodes tityrus
16 Pieris brassicae

Thanks for watching!

Gratulacje z powou 400 postu.
Uwielbiam parzec na palete kolorów na jednym chocby motylu a tu ich az tyle...

Wow, Greg,
this is so beautiful!
Every butterfly is so pretty and together it's marvelous. The combination of the colours is perfect - excellent work.
Please tell me - do you have a program for making such collages? I always have to puzzle until the single photos match together.
Thank you so much for today's post - congratulation for so many perfect shots until the last years, bye

Grzegorz, congratulations on your 400th post on TrekNature.

This is really very beautiful. If I'm not mistaken, you're not a big fan of butterflies. If one takes this in consideration, the impact of this image increases.

A colorful festival. It's very beautiful.

Congrats on your 400th post!

I have only one nit, but this is really big one. There's way too many b'flies here! ;)

Great presentation Greg!

Perfect! this is fantastic Grzegorz! All the images look fantastic in this collage of beautiful butterflies, perfect to celebrate your 400th image. Wow! :)

Congratulations on your 400th post! They are all excellent captures, very detailed and colorful. Great work on your collage. Hope we will see many other beautiful pictures from you on TN!
