Ciao Jane, beautiful macro of wonderful Butterfly, I never see before, thanks, great colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio
A fne capture of a Viceroy that mimics the Queen butterfly taken from a nice POV as it sucks up salts from the gravel. Excellent sharpness and natural colours in a fine composition.
These mimicking species are amazing in how closely they resemble their poisonous models.
Thanks for this fine contribution to TN!

Nice photo of this butterfly in good sharpness and natural colours. Maybe your POV was a bit high, but this is a very good composition.

We have not this species in our region. It is really amazing and you managed to show all its beauties perfectly. Colours, details are fine as well as simple but very suitable surroundings. My best wishes and compliments.

Interestingly designed body or just very big. I may have seen one or two in my travels but until happening on your notes and image, would not have known it's ID, but back then I was in as much a hurry as kids today...maybe I simply didn't take time to notice. Now I have.

A lovely capture of this viceroy butterfly. Very well captured with sharp details. It looks a bit like our common tiger butterfly here. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Viceroy is very beautiful butterfly. When I saw it in first time, I thought it belonged to a Danaus species. Because there are several Limenitis species in Turkiye, I saw one of them in nature and other in book; yours is very different from them. After reading your notes, I understand my idea was wrong and this was mimicric butterfly. thanks for sharing this information and of course this very nice shot. nice details and POV. coloration and composition also very nice. thanks again. best regards
i'd first to see an Monarch butterfly but this one looks almost the same?
Good low pov and dof, razor sharpness with much details.
