From my backyard:

The Ringlet (Lepidoptera; Satyridae; Aphantopus hyperantus L.; Brauner Waldvogel; le Tristan) has been reported on TN for many countries, this is the Swiss entry. The species reproduces nicely in the neglected backyard.

ID: for once the species is clearly identifiable; two yellow ringed eyes of hind wing underside are displaced basally

Lieber Dieter,
Wieder ein schöner Schmetterling aus Deinem Garten. Diese Spezies habe ich nur selten im BOGA Bern gesehen. Schönes, feines Bild, mit dem Blitz gut beleuchtet ohne schwarzen Hintergrund. Schöne Darstellung auch. Ich füge in gleich ins Schmetterligsthema ein.
Hoffe, dass es Dir gut geht und schicke herzliche grüsse

Gran realización de esta bella especie Dietrich. Destacaria sin ninguna
duda el gran realismo que emana, principalmente por la buena captura de
los colores del conjunto. Encuadre algo ajustado a mi gusto.
Un abrazo y buen fin de semana: Josep Ignasi.

Hello Dietrich,
A lovely view of the Ringlet from a nice POV and in beautiful light. Good focus on the eye, sharp details and the colours are lovely in this composition. Very well done!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Excellent color & exposure Dietrich, great POV and detail too.
Would be even better with a bit more space left, and I would remove the yellow blurb at the top edge if it was mine.
Well done.
