Brenthis daphne-Marbled Fritillary
Tr.Name: Böğürtlen Brentisi
This is a widespread species over much of southern and eastern Europe. It is not often common though but usually there are a few to be seen feeding at flowers at any given site. It frequents lush meadows with flowers. It is distinguished from its close relative the Lesser Marbled Fritillary, Brenthis ino, by its larger size and the underside rectangular marking outside the cell. This is half shaded with brown/ purple in daphne, clear cream in ino.

Hi Fikret

What a terrific macro work!
I really love the very sharp and crispy clear details and texture on this little fellow as well as the vivid and vibrant colors! They really make him stand out so well!
The DOF is also very precise and it blurres the BG superbly, the exposure is spot-on and the composition simple but very effective!
All-in-all: great work!

Bravo and TFS

Fikret , süper bir makro olmuş , eline sağlık , bol şanslar.

Hola Fikret,
Preciosa imagen, con excelente nitidez, buenos detalles y luz muy agradable. Saludos

Fine capture of a fresh Marbled fritillary from your archives. The whole butterfly is sharp and stands out well against the blurred Bg in this pleasing composition.

Hello Fikret,
Wow ! This butterfly is lovely and you caught him very well.
The "+++" : composition, nice subject, wings well open, POV, sharpness, DOF, colors, exposure...
The "=" : perhaps cancel the distracting yellow shot at the top of picture...
Congratulations and thanks for sharing.

An extraordinarily attractive capture of this photogenic butterfly, Fikret.
There is not a thing out of place here.
Hats off to you again.

Hello Fikret
This is the best Brenthis daphne I have ever seen!
You captured it in a perfect angle and pose, with the wings wide open. The sharpness is so perfect that you can appreciate every single detail. The composition is a marvel with the butterfly upon those lilac petals and the great bg.
My compliments and thank you very much for sharing.

Hi Fikret, splendid butterfly with good light and colors, excellent focus and sharpness, wonderful details, lovely presentation, very well done, ciao Silvio
