Hi Anne,
Wonderful flower-butterfly combo Anne. The orange color of the Frillary goes wonderful with the Dandelion. This is really sharp and well composed. I like the black pattern on the wings. Why is the butterfly not common anymore? Is it habitat loss? Iquiring minds want to know. Have a great day.

Bonjour Anne,
A great capture of a male euphrosyne feeding in the open wing pose.
The sharpness, DOF, natural colours and composition are close to perfection. This species is not common wherewe live but more common further north. This is great to view.
Merci et bonne journée,

Hola Anne

Buena composición frontal donde se pueden apreciar perfectamente los detalles de la mariposa. POV excelente y buena nitidez.

Un saludo de Antonio
