[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Last friday I was on very interesting lecture in Lodz's section of Polish Entomological Society. It was about migration of butterflies, ways to calculate insects' migration routes, different methods of navigation and last but not least about main routes of migration of Monarch butterfly. Unfortunatelly I haven't got any picture of Monarch [maybe some day ;-)] so I decided to post picture of one of most beautifull local emigrant - Vanessa atalanta.

This picture is dedicated to my friends from PTE - sorry guys, we meet in pub next time :-)

Good photo of the buterfly. I like very much the colors of your photo. You have obtained a good composition. Butterfly, flower and background look fine. Also DoF is good fine details of insect can be seen.

Best regards,

Very fine picture of this Red Admiral, and also good to know from your notes that there is a thriving Polish Entomological Society! Thanks.

Hi Grzegorz.
Fantastic of beautifulness scene and great quality of the picture. What a nice specimen as well as the flower. Superb colours, excellent sharpness of the butterfly and flower heart. I like blurred flower as BG too. Bravo. Perfectly done.

Hi Greg

It's great that you have such nice lectures there and that everyone can attend and maybe learn something from them :) The people from the P.E.S. really are cool!
This is a lovely macro from you, taken with your "nice-old" S2 :) I think sometimes we both miss the versatility and simplicity that it offers :)
Yet, it can definitely produce some lovely photos such as this one.
Great details and colors, very nice DOF and side POV.
Lovely work!

Bravo and TFS

Hola Grzegorz, buen trabajo especialmente con el color y sus contrastes de la siempre bella Vanessa. Acertada pose y una ténue luz muy interesante.
Un saludos: J. Ignasi Tejedor.

That sounds like it would have been a very interesting lecture Red Greg - but unfortunately, not for me. I can't understand Polish!!

What a beauty this photos is - the Vanessa atalanta and of course, the Echanacea flowers. Good shot MF

Hot, sunny regards from Aotearoa

Hi Greg,
Where are you man? No more interesting posts from you. Hope everything alright there. A fine capture of this Vanessa atalanta. Excellent composition and details. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Ciao Grzegorz, I like this butterfly with splendid colors, splendid composition with beautiful flower, excellent sharpness, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hello Greg !
It's been a long time since I last visited your gallery, and I'm pleased to see that you have added somemore picutres. This one is truy splendid. The details are just awesome on the butterfly. Nice natural colors, wonderful composition and POV, excellent BG (I like the big blurred flower) and you have captured the butterfly at the best moment, while drinking the nectar. And there is also a second insect on your picture, isn'it ? Just in front of the butterfly... Anyway, very well done !
