[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This beautifull Nymphalidae is common in south Europe but in Israel is not common at all and fly only in three areas. it is a fast flyer and territorial. this causes it to fly toward every invador trying to get it out of the territory. many adults can be seen with their wings missing pieces because of daily fightings.
This adult was probably very fresh the day I took the shot and its wings were perfect.

Hallo Oz,
excellent capture of this very shy and rather fast butterfly. You met a specimen in good condition.

Very beautiful butterfly.
Very good POV, DOF and colours.

What a beautiful Nymphalidae Oz!
Excellent DOF, POV, exposure, color, sharpness, detail, and framing. I think the substrate it's on, adds good interest also.
Very nice work and Thank You!
