Hello Anne,
Nice to be your neighbour today. Most of all I like the clarity in this image. Light and colors are gorgeous. Excellent sharp focus on butterfly and flower. Fine composition with a nice blurred background too.

Hello Anne,
The markings on this butterfly are simply gorgeous. Colors are bright and immediately capture your attention. Lovely composition and perfectly exposed. A real beauty!! The bloom is also quite attractive.

Ciao Anne, gret macro of best aide for this fantastic Queen on beautiful flower, lovely blurry BG, fine details, wonderful natural colors, superb sharpness and splendid light, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

This is decidedly the most beautiful Fritillary in the world, Anne.
Your picture does full justice to its beauty.
Superb capture in which both sides of its wings are partially visible.
The composition with the flower is eye-catching and beautiful.

Hello Anne,
Sometime such natural habitat photograph adds a different feeling in the picture. Well composition with splendid BG. Details ate very good too.
Thanks for sharing with useful NOTE about Queen,
Regards and have a nice Sunday,

hallo Anne

thanks gr lou

Bonsoir Anne
voici une magnifique photo, très bonne qualité des couleurs et de la netteté.
J'aime bien le fond flou et la présence de la touche jaune, le tout dans une belle harmonie.

Hello Anne,
Congratulation for this outstanding capture. Very sharp image and with perfect focus as usual. I like the natural colors and the low POV in which you shoot this photo. The shining silver spots on the wings are very well presented.....It is very difficult to catch this spots because they are usually looking "white" on the screen...

Bonjour Anne

Jolie photo de ce papillon sur sa fleur, excellent POV et surtout cadrage,
j'aimes que dans la photo à l'arrière-plan tu as inclus cette fleur jaune
même si c'est hors-focus, sa donne une jolie photo environnementale, TFS


Hi Anne,
Beautiful, clear capture with incredible sharpness and absolutely free of noise. I like the sunny colors as well as the exposure, no blown out parts in the bright spots. Positioning of the butterfly is also very nice and makes the image very attractive to the viewer. Nice shot - and hopefully not the last in your gallery as we all are waiting for your return.
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Liebe Anne,
prachtvoll, ein Meisterwerk der Malerei mit Licht.
Die riesengrossen Perlmutterflecken von I. lathonia in bestens wiedergegebener strahlender Leuchtkraft zu sehen.
Einfach grandios.
In Bewunderung und mit herzlichem Gruss,
