Hello , I may say I can't wait the spring ! Glad I still have pictures to remind to my eyes why that :-) !

A little bit of info from : http://www.learnaboutbutterflies.com/Europe%20-%20Coenonympha%20glycerion.htm

The genus Coenonympha comprises 39 known species, found variously in North America, Europe, north Africa and temperate areas of Asia. There are 14 species in Europe.
Coenonympha glycerion is found across much of Europe from northern Portugal to Russia, but is absent from many areas including Britain, Sweden, Norway, Finland, southern Spain and western France. Beyond Europe it's range extends to Siberia, Mongolia and Japan.
The size and number of ocelli on the underside wings varies considerably according to locality. In the Spanish subspecies C. glycerion iphioides they are particularly prominent. In examples from cooler areas the ocelli are often entirely absent. The white markings on the hindwings also vary greatly, some examples having just one or two small white patches, while in others these are linked to form a prominent white post-median band.

Hello Tina,
A splendid macro of this butterfly in perfect sharpness and details. Light and colours are gorgeous. Taken from an excellent POV in a very good composition. Nice blurry background.

Si aceasta fotografie este impecabil realizata. Claritatea imaginii, culorile si detaliile sunt exceptionale. La un focus perfect aceasta specie este foarte fotogenica tocmai prin multimea de perisori de pe aripi......

Hello Tina,
Another great one! I don't know what I love the most: fantastic sharpness? Or excellent POV which allows seeing the butterfly in the best angle? Or gorgeous contrasting colors?
Ok, it's all together. Thanks for sharing this wonderful picture.

Hello Tina,
Yes, here we are still in the whiteness of winter and long for spring!
A fine capture of glycerion, a species absent from my country.
The sharpness is superb without the harshness of over-sharpening and the colours and compsition couldn't be better!
Thanks and have a great Sunday,
