ANTHOCHARIS CARDAMINES

Orange tip
Aurorafalter
Aurore

A very wellknown butterfly, which I don't have to present again. It's a male specimen with the orage wingends which is shown here.
We have such dull grey weather for a week now, it's quite depressing. A lot of people having colds and flues, I'm not an exception.
So, I look forward for spring to arrive and among the first butterflies which will appear, this beautiful species.

Hello Anel
Once again a stunner from your hand and camera. The technical aspects applied here is great. All the butterflies in your images always seem to be posing just for you and you are very fortunate to have such opportunities to capture them in this delightful almost behavioural way. It is always pleasant to look at your postings and this Anthocharis cardamines is no exception. Like always your presentation is done with pride and preciseness and I thank your for that. Focus, sharpness, composition and overall display is great, and of course the lavender flowers the butterfly is resting on is in my opinion the cherry on the cake to round of this great image.
Best regards.
Anna

Hallo Anel,
Die Farben des Schmetterlings sind sehr schön und hell. Die grau-weiss-orange Kombination gefällt mir besonders gut.Die Blumen bilden interessante Farbkombination zu Deinen Aurorafalter.Viele Grüße
Siggi

It is not easy to get an Orange Tip with its wings fully open, Anne.
You were lucky to capture this male last summer with its beautiful wings spread out.
It is my observation that the perches your butterflies choose for you are always classic :).
So it is not just the butterfly but also those purple blooms that make this composition such a beauty.
Well done and TFS.
Ram

ciao Anne!
I agree with Ram....you were lucky to capture this butterfly wings to open, last year I have to chase different fields and meadows, but they are too hectic and are always in flight....
compliments sERGIO

Ciao Anne,
splendida immagine di Anthocharis cardamines, una fra le belle Pieridi che ho visto ma non sono riuscito a fotografare, tu invece l'hai "immortalato" per noi in un a meravigliosa composizione dai fantastici colori, la nitidezza è molto buona.
TFS.
Buon weekend.

Encore bonjour Anne,
A delightful reminder of the late spring in this fine capture of an Orange Tip male that has settled on the flowers of honesty, one of its larval host plants. Taken with excellent sharpness and well composed to include the flowers.
Merci!
Bonne soirée et bonne fin de semaine,
Amitiés,

Ciao Anne, fascinating composition with wonderful butterfly and beautiful flowers, splendid colors, great details and excellent sharpness, very well done, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Sooooo schön, Anne, ich hatte noch nie die Gelegenheit, den Aurorafalter zu fotografieren, sie waren immer schneller als ich. Es ist bezaubernd sie durch die Gegend flattern zu sehen, das Orange ist wunderbar.
Herzlichen Dank für Dein farbenfrohes Bild, gefällt mir sehr

Hi Anne.
Once more picture of a wonderful scene at whole, fine flowers and astounding butterfly. Its wingspread is amazing and allows to see wonderful colouration of the wings. I also like so delicate lighting and pleasant colours of the image as well as impressive POV and composition. My kind regards and TFS. Well done.
Alexei.

Aparte de la belleza del conjunto, es impresionante la combinación de los colores, que la hace una toma especial. Sobrada profundidad y buen enfoque en todos los planos. Un bonito trabajo. Saludos: Josep Ignasi.

Liebe Anne,
ein Frühlingsvorbote auf TN! Mit ihm geht es mir wie dir mit dem Apoll'. Ich bekomme ihn nicht gut vor die Linse.
Im letzten Frühjahr hatte ich mich sehr bemüht ... 0! Dir wünsch ich für dieses Jahr (mindestens) einen Apollo
und ich werde mich weiterbemühen auch solch ein schönes Aurora-Bild hinzubekommen.
Schöne Grüße, Peter

Hallo Anne, nochmals,

den habe ich natürlich im letzten Frühling auch gejagt, ich wollte ihn auf Cardamine sitzend schiessen. Aber mein Bild reicht qualitativ nicht an Deines ran. Trickreich ist die Abbildung des feinen grauen Musters auf weissem Hinterflügel. Das kannst Du eben, ich werde aber im nächsten Frühling wieder üben!

Herzlich
Dieter

Franchement, Anne, les couleurs sont superbes, c'est très réussi! Que c'est beau, ce violet et cet orangé du papillon! Assez inhabituel, aussi, il me semble. Vivement le retour de cette joie, ça arrive sous peu! Bye bye,

Lovely composition and pleasantly presented.

Hallo Anne!

Nur nicht zu schnell her mit dem Frühling! Wo soll ich sonst meine Eisflächen hernehmen?

:-)

Offenbar brauchst Du auch nicht in Eile zu sein, Dein Archiv zaubert noch herrliche Aufnahmen wie diese hervor. Die Farbenpracht ist wunderbar, das Bild auch von der technischen Seite her perfekt.

Grüessli

Markus

Taken in spring and seen as same...I didn't even look at the date but the image almost smelled by appearance like Easter....It would make q nice spring greeting card or even a religious card..should one be thinking that way...

Hallo Anne,
auf dem kleinen Bild in meiner Favoriten-Liste erkannte ich erst garnicht, das hier ein Falter sitzt. Ein schöne Koposition mit dem unscharfen Hintergrund.
Viele Grüße,

Salut Anne
Tres belle composition.Bon PDV et image bien en focus.Le detail du papillon est excellent.
Merci Michel

Liebe Anne,
duftiges, exquisit komponiertes, sehr präzises Foto des Aurorafalters auf zarter Lunaria, wohl auch der Futterpflanze seiner Raupe. Sehnsucht nach Frühling, zu Bild gebracht.
Mit Dank und herzlichen Grüßen,
Peter

P.S.: Auch bei uns gab es lange düstere Winterwochen, ein Drittel der Menschen krank mit Husten oder Grippe, ein weiteres Drittel seelisch darnieder, und der Rest nicht ganz bei Sinnen. War lange Tage durch endlose Arbeit verhindert, meine Freunde auf TN zu besuchen. Eine Freude, es nun ein wenig nachzuholen.
Heute erste Vorfrühlingsstimmung mit einem Blick Sonne in Wien. Fahre ab morgen mit meiner Frau für 10 Tage in die Berge (Ramsau am Dachstein) zum Langlaufen - Erholung und Abstand vom Tagwerk.
Wünsche auch Dir schöne Tage und gute Erholung!
Liebe Grüsse - und bis bald.

Hello Anne,
This butterfly is a beautiful specimen with their orange wingtips. I have noticed also that the flowers in this scene are alike those that we have here in the Cascades and the Columbia River Gorge in certain locations. This ia a beautiful image with the complimentary colors immersed in the scene you offer to us.
Well seen, and I hope yodur health improves. The stomach flu here has hit many, and I as well for the very first time since I was about 12 years old.
Have A Great Week ahead...
Steve

Hello Anne
