Very pretty Fritillary, Anne.
Yellow flower complements the butterfly very well.
A beautiful composition again.
Warm regards.

Hello Anne,
Very beautiful macro in fine sharpness. With the exception of the left wing everything in the butterfly and flower is sharp. Nice blurry background. Beautiful natural colors.
Regards,
Peter

Hello Anne, and congratulations on a new species for your Swiss butterflies theme.
Nicely presented in bright colors and sharp detail. Entire butterfly and flower are In fine focus except for a tiny fraction of its left wing. The dark green BG contrast very well with the orange and black markings of the butterfly and the yellow bloom. Exposure looks great. Well done!!

Liebe Anne,
wunderbar schwungvolles, klares und kraftvolles Foto - und es zeigt eine Raritaet.
Faellt mir oft nicht leicht, die Maenchen von B. napaea von denen der viel zahlreicheren B. pales zu unterscheiden. Die graugruen verdunkelten Weibchen machen uns die Unterscheidung da viel leichter.
Nach laengerer Pause sind mir heuer wieder einige dieser Art auf Bergtouren in den oesterreichischen Hochalpen begegnet. Eine Freude.
Mit herzlichen Gruessen,
Peter
