Lieber Peter,
Sehe gerade dieses schöne Blid, das Du letztes Jahr im Wallis gemacht hast. Diese roten Scheckenfalter sind wirklich spezielle Kreaturen, sie erscheinen mir immer so wie archaische Geschöpfe. Perfekt fotografiert auf einer Karthäusernelke ruhend. Sehr gefälliges Bild.
Hoffe, dass es Dir gut geht und schicke liebe Grüsse
