[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This beautiful small butterfly is probably a Boloria euphrosyne (Pearl-bordered Fritillary) of the Nymphalidae family. This butterfly can be found in whole Europe until Russia and Asia. The English name has been given by the raw of perls on the under-wings. I just hope that the ID is right.
The picture has been cropped and slightly sharpened and resized for TN (I thank Dietrich Meyer so much for having learnt me how to use the PP-software)

Hello Anne,
What a fine close macro of a male B. euphrosyne! Excellent sharpness, colour and detail and a superb blurred floral BG. You must have had a fairly high ISO to be able to use f13 and 400 shutter speed.
Lovely shot!
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Bonjour Anne,

Amicalement

Hi Anne.
Wonderful art shot. How well blurred flowers are looked as BG. How well is looked butterfly which perfectly reproduced and wonderful as it is. At whole pictured scene is great too. However, the most beautiful is fluffy body, head and impressive eyes of this beauty. Bravo and best regards.

Hallo Anne,
dein Bild zeigt die Zeichnung des Perlmutterfalters sehr detailliert und in angenehm natürlichen Farben. Blüte und Hintergrundfarben bringen einen geeigneten Kontrast. Nach meinem Geschmack - und das ist meiner - würde ein wenig mehr Platz zu den Seiten und nach oben das Bild noch attraktiver machen.
Schöne Grüße, Peter
P.S. Ich freue mich auf die Sommerferien in den Alpen und hoffe dort viele Falter vor die Linse zu bekommen.

Hello Anne,
The patterns on the butterfly are sharply focused. So much detail and color. I like the aperture selection, which produced a nice background whie preserving sufficient depth. Excellent composition and technique. Regards,

Guten Tag Anne,

diese Begegnung mit dem Veilchen-Perlmutterfalter könnte überwältigender nicht ausfallen. New Yorker Pressefotografen wissen genau, wie packende Bilder entstehen: "Get closer!"

Hier stimmt aber auch alles: exzellente Details, feinste Nuancen bei hoher Sättigung der Farben, ein wunderbar kontrastierender und zugleich lebendiger Hintergrund, und nicht zuletzt sogar der deutlich zu sehende Perlmutterschimmer auf den Flecken des Hinterflügels - einfach monumental.

Was mich hier auch so beeindruckt, ist das im Vergleich zu Deinem bisher so ästhetisch distanzierten Herangehen an Kleintiere und Blüten so intensive Zupacken. Zwei Möglichkeiten des künstlerischen Herangehens, die Du offenbar beide perfekt beherrscht.

Mit Dank und herzlichen Grüßen,
Peter

P.S.: B. euphrosyne bin ich im Mai in unseren Bergen auch immer wieder begegnet, hab sie aber lange nicht so gut im Bild festhalten können wie Du hier.

Hi Anne,
Good detail and background in this capture. Nice POV, colors, DOF, and details. Perhaps a bit tight behind. I did a quick WS to try & improve your post.
Howard

Hi Anne ,
very nice macro with lovely colours.
great sharpness.
Thanks for sharing

Ja Anne,
Du leistest Dir einen neuen Höhepunkt! Ich habe dem Kommentar der andern nichts hinzuzufügen. Bravo und danke! Wenn man dann noch weiss, dass Du die Aufnahmen kaum bearbeitest. Auf die Komplimente von Peter Stoeckl darfst Du wirklich stolz sein.

Übrigens glaube ich, dass unserem Howard im Workshop mit PS eine Verbesserung gelungen ist. Er ist darin wirklich sehr beschlagen, meistens sind seine Eingriffe nur geringer Art, aber mit guter Wirkung.

Herzlich grüsst Dich
Dieter

Hi Anne,
wonderful colors. Details and sharpness excellent. Bravo! Information you gave very useful. thanks for sharing

Bonjour Anne,
Vous nous offrez encore un beau specimen de la nature. Il ressort bien sur le fond flouté et mauve. La netteté est bonne et permet d'admirer les détails du papillon. Le cadrage est peut-être un peu serré et le workshop de Haward est pas mal...
Compliments chère voisine !

bonjour anne
le WS qu howard a fait est bien utile mais votre photo est deja tres belle,la profondeur est bien choisie tout comme le point de vue.

A truly beautiful posting - the focus is great - but most of all you have an excellent 'eye' for colour composition.

Hola Anne, que bella toma y ejemplar, muy logrado el detallismo de las alas, parece un trabajo de patchwork, las antenas de dos colores, parece una mariposa de invierno... por el abrigo. Muy buena iluminación y composición. Saludos Sira

Excellent macro shot, nice bright colours. I think your country is really stunning for work like this. For us the weather this year was not the best for the camera's, we'll have to wait a while.

Hi Anne,
first of all thank you very much for looking at my post, and have to spend some moment to think about and responding towards it.
Again I would say that you have shot a very special butterfly ( actually each and everyone of it is special, with very beautiful pattern and colours. Great clarity offered in your shot is really excellent.
The colour of the flower it is sucking is also very complementary and adds interest to the already exciting and brilliant shot.

Regards,
Foozi
