Picture from todays walk in Botanic Garden. Meeting with this butterfly was big surprise for me - I saw this specie for first time in my life and I was also surprised by its small size - it looks like bigger butterflies from Lycaenidae family. Today was good day for photography - clear sky and I had much free time :-) I saw two new species of butterflies (which means that I identyfied 40 different species in The Garden), few spiders with prey and our biggest robberfly which I'll post soon.

As Krzysiek wrote - this is Boloria dia, butterfly from subfamily Heliconiinae. It is cousin of Silver-washed Fritillary which I posted earlier, but much smaller.

Hi Greg. It sounds like you had a great day in the gardens. And this making 40 species from there. You were able to take a fine close up from the side view. Which has given us a good view of the markings . taken with sharp focusimg and natural colours. Well done TFs.

great job...

Hello Greg,
Yes surely a surprise. A surprise in quality! Excellent photo in very beautiful warm colours and great sharp details. Perfect POV, very good composition and a lovely OOF BG.

Kolejna swietna fotka. W zasadzie to juz nudne pisac techniczne oceny Twoich zdjec bo wszystkie sa bez zarzutu :-) Mysle, ze jutro wybiore sie do Ogrodu Botanicznego - w zasadzie po raz pierwszy w zyciu (nie liczac wczesnego dziecinstwa).

Hello Greg,

An excellent surprise indeed with such brilliant colors, sharpness & fine details. Excellently done & TFS.

Hello Greg,
A very fine macro of Boloria dia, even though it is a worn specimen. The closed wings are shown with excellent sharpness and lighting in this full-frame image.
Another wonder from the Lodz Botanical Gdns! an amazing place!
Thanks and all the best,
