[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
On a nice summerday, Anne (anel), Dietrich (meyerd) and me met on the
Moosalpe (Valais, Switzerland) for butterfly foto-shooting.
The place harbours numerous species of butterflies, other insects and plants
... and I must say that I very often remember this beautiful TN-mini-Meeting.
There is no need to say many words on the species shown on the picture,
the swallowtail Papilio machaon.
It is often presented here and without doubt is one of the most attractive European butterflies.

I dedicate this picture to Anne and Dietrich.

Hello Peter,
Awesome image and filled with fine detail and gorgeous coloration. Love the close crop, as it gives us a wonderful view of the intricate marking on this particular butterfly. Excellent exposure and attractive semi blurred BG!

Lieber Peter,
Da muss ich mich ja doppelt bedanken! Zuerst für die liebenswürdige Widmung eines Schmetterlings, der Dieter und mir natürlich sehr bekannt vorkommt:-). Hast ihn perfekt erwischt, als er sich auf der Distel erquickte. Auch ist es dir gelungen, ihn gut vom Hintergrund zu lösen.
Dieter hat das Bild scheinbar auch noch nicht gesehen.
Und noch einen grossen Dank für die rasche Hilfe für meinen Schmetterling. Dass das ein weiblicher Coridon ist, auf diese Idee wäre ich wirklich nicht gekommen! Ich werde meinen Begleittext sobald wie möglich ändern.
Nochmals herzlichen Dank für alles
Herzlich grüsst
Anne
