Southern Festoon

I hope I don't bore you bringing the Southern Festoon again. I had the chance to take pictures of it on different plants,following its peregrination on a certain distance. And then I approached slowly and it showed to be quite cooperativ.
In the last days I didn't found it any more, must have gone somewhere else..

It's for you Lázló, I know now that this butterfly means a lot to you.

Ciao Anne,
un'altra bella immagine di questa rara e splendida farfalla, di cui io ho solo "immortalato" i bruchi, ma purtroppo voleranno come farfalle solo in aprile del prossimo anno, non so se mi deciderň a pubblicare un'immagine su TN; eccellenti i dettagli e bellissima composizione.
Grazie e complimenti
Con amicizia

Hi Anne,
a very lovely captured butterfly in special colours and wings pattern. The hairs are very detailed and its pose grabbing the buds is readable.
well use of light to enhance the beauty.


Hallo Anne,
wunderbar wie dieser Falter an dieser Blüte hängt. Was macht er da nur, denn was Süßes gibt es dort wohl kaum.
Liebe Grüße,

Bien captada la belleza de esa Zerynthia. Es una especie de gran belleza, aunque esa en concreto no la conocía. Bien aislada de los fuertes efectos de la luz. Un interesante trabajo.
Saludos: J. Ignasi.

Hello Anne
An excellent lateral view capture of Z. polyxena taken with its wings closed.
+: Sharpness(excellent), DOF, pose, BG, composition, colours and lighting.
-: part of the body hidden by a flower bud but it is a very minor point.
Thanks and best regards,

Hello Anne,
Sorry for reacting only now - sometimes I'm in big rush and I don't have time for checking out everything new on TN. Thank You very much for this wonderful dedication, excellent sharpness on the b/fly, perfect blurry bg - no noise at all. A photo to be proud of - both for You and me. For You, because You shot this, for me, because I got such a beautiful dedication. Thanks again Madame.
Best wishes from Hungary, László
