More on the "Berne-Fribourg chapter" of TN:

Thanks to Anne's keen eyes we discovered this Green hairstreak (Lepidoptera; Lycaenidae; Callophrys rubi; Brombeer-Zipfelfalter) in the grass during our Moosalp excursion. The photographic challenge for us three was the low light and the reflection on the scales. We had a good time watching each other as we were sneaking closer and closer for a shot.

Hello Meyerd,
This is a very fine capture of the Green Hairstreak. It is very nicely in focus showing sharp details and fine colours. A nice dark contrasting background too. It seems very late for this species to show up, or?
TFS and regards, Ulla

Hello Dieter,
A fine sharp capture of a slightly worn C. rubi (a slip in your title). The DOF is excellent and your companions must have enjoyed seeing you take this beauty so well!
Thanks and have a good weekend,

Hi Meyerd,this is a great scoop,i think this butterfly is very rare,never seen,excellents colors and details and very perfect choice of POV,my best compliments,Luciano

Lieber Dieter,
der im Unterwuchs so gut getarnte Falter wird von Dir in seinen feinsten Details ins Rampenlicht gestellt.
Erstaunlich dreidimensional wirkend und reich an Farbnuancen.
Mit Dank und herzlichen Grüßen,

Hello Dietrich. A very good close uo of this butterfly. Which you have captured with sharp focusing and fine detail. Your use of the light has given fine natural colours. I think the picture has every shade of green . well done TFS.
Have a nice weekend.

bonjour dietrich
c'est dommage que ce joli papillon ne se soir pas posé plus en hauteur afin d'optenir un plus beau BG,mais ce serait trop facile si l'on pouvais choisir!
toujours est-il que la netteté est bonne et j'aime aussi la couleur de ce papillon.
dans la mesure ou il se trouve sur le même plan de la tête au bout des ailes vous auriez peu etre du essayer d'ouvrir au maximun et ainsi les brin d'herbes auraient été un peu estompé,enfin en theorie.

Lieber Dieter,
Freue mich den Zipfelfalter zu sehen. Mit dem Blitz kriegt man halt bessere Details hin, das sehe ich jetzt gut hier, wenn ich vergleiche. Hübsch, wie er sich schützt im Grase. Er war aber sehr nett zu uns;-)
Ein schöner Sonntag noch und herzliche Grüsse

Hallo Dieter!

Ich bin so froh, dass du dieses Bild zeigst; es ist wunderbar und erinnert mich an die intensiv erlebten gemeinsamen Momente bei der Jagd nach dem Zipfelfalter. Das Bild ist perfekt gelungen! Ich kann davon nur lernen...



Bonjour Dietrich
Très belle prise, très belles couleurs et netteté, bon éclairage au flash. Bravo
Amicalement Robi

Hallo Dietrich
Due to the fact that I have been ill, I just could not give my comments to some of the lovely images that appeared and past me by on the gallery. Now I have such a lot of catching up to do so please pardon me for only saying……………………
Splendid image. It is indeed a feast to the eye and it did not go unnoticed. The way you captured this lovely soft green butterfly from so close-by is just great. It gives the feeling that one just want to reach out and stroke the soft and tender looking wings. Marvellous display of the detail of the eye.
Best regards
