ARGYNNIS ADIPPE (Denis&Schiffermüller, 1775)

High Brown Fritillary
Feuriger Perlmutterfalter
Moyen nacré

Family: Nymphalidae
Subfamily: Heliconiinae
Genus: Argynnis
Wingspan: 40-45mm
Flight time: June to August, one generation

Argynnis adippe looks quite like Argynnis aglaja, the difference is better seen on the underwings, A. adippe having some spots, absent on A. aglaja. Also ths shape of the wings is slightly different, A. adippe has more curved ones.

Anne;
How delightful. we are neighbors for the first time I believe. And a nice neighbor you are. As was this last spring and early summer I became familiar with a Skipper. Now in the last few weeks I find myself learning and seeing many more of the Fritallry family. And in this instance, a fine colour reproduction of your minds eye. Nicely decorated butterfly in pattern and colour.

Hi Anne,
what a nice capture for beatiful nymphalid species. It occurs here, but I dont see more than A. pandora. You captured it with a great shot. Sharp details, POV and diagonal composition great. Colors also superb. Thanks for sharing, best wishes
Ayşegül.

Hello Anne,
A fine classic open-wing capture of a male A. adippe with high technical qualities to show the wing pattern with fine details. I like the tilted composition and the butterfly contrasts well with the OOF natural BG.
This species is becoming much rarer in Sweden, due mostly to modern forestry and I havenít seen one for some years now.
So thanks for sharing this fine illustration,
Regards,
Ivan

hello anne,
very beautiful capture, your pov to shoot is perfect, the view with open wings look so lovely, liked the composition and the saturated color tones, the bg has some noise. i have tried a workshop and hope that you may like it.
tfs & regards

Hello Anne
In recently purchased Butterfly book there are some fantastic pictures of Fritillarys all of which are rivalled and surpassed by this wonderful capture of yours..I have yet to find one of any description despite a lot of searching this year.
Superb natural colours and sharpness set against a very good mottled BG.
My Best Regards
Paul

Liebe Anne,
eine ganz tolle und abermals für deine Bilder typische Farb- und Lichtgestaltung.
Der ganze Falter liegt in der Fokusebene als hätte er sich ihr angepasst - von den Fühlerspitzen über die Flügel hinweg.
Der Hintergrund wirkt etwas verrauscht - da könnte man etwas nachglätten.
Schöne Grüße und danke für die deinigen unter meinem letzten Bild,
Peter

P.S. Ich sehe gerade, dass Pankaj schon eine Nachbearbeitung gemacht hat. Der Hintergrung ist jetzt weicher,
dafür treten aber Artefakte zu Tage, die vermutlich auf Schärfung zurückzuführen sind.

Hi Anne. A fine close up of this beauty . I like the top POV so we can see all the wing markings. which with your fine detail they show up so well, with bright colours.A nice DOF. well done TFS.
Nick..

Hallo Anne!

Jedesmal wenn ich deine Schmetterlinge sehe, kommt mir unser Aufenthalt in Bürchen in den Sinn. Es sind schöne Erinnerungen und ich assoziiere deine Bilder gerne damit. Auch dieses Bild gefällt mir durch seine Schlichtheit und technische Perfektion. Ich bin mir nicht sicher, ob der WS wirklich eine Verbesserung ist...

Grüessli

Hello Anne,

Nice portret of this butterfly you have made. The image is very good with great sharpness showing so well wing's pattern. You have also made good use of the light rendering natural colors with a reachness of color tones.

Thank you for sharing,

Hello Anne,
Very beautiful photo in splendid colours and very sharp. Great POV and BG. The composition is a bit out of balance. A little crop from the right a bit more space above would have been better, I think.
Kind regards,
Peter

Hello Anne,
I seems to miss out this beautiful shot of the High Brown Fritillary!
perfect exposure and focus with great sharpness, good colour and superb details
well done
cheers

Hallo Anne, nochmals,
ich bin mit TN im Hintertreffen, deshalb der Nachholbedarf. Den wirklich schönen Falter hast Du in der Weise dargestellt, wie sie für den Falter typisch ist, der Kerl will doch einfach auffallen und das tut er auch auf Deinem Bild. Gut gemacht, Anne. Den Falter ghabe ich im Schaffhausener Randen zum ersten Mal wahrgenommen.
Beste Grüsse
Dieter

Bonita !! Es curiosa la similitud de muchas de estas especies . Buen encuadre y mucha naturalidad en el color.
Me ha hecho mucha ilusión que te gustara que mi escrito fuera en Catalán ; a muchos Españoles les hubiera molestado ( no a todos ), lo cual denuestra que en pleno siglo XXI aún estemos con estos sentimientos :-(

Un abrazo y a disfrutar de la fotografía Anne:
