Hallo Lou,
Een heel bijzondere vlinder met erg mooie kleuren. Prima scherpte en genomen vanuit een goede positie. Steekt zo goed af tegen de donkere achtergrond.

Hello Lou,
A superb capture of a fresh specimen of L. reducta, showing the underside, as well as a little of the upperside of the wings with excellent sharpness and colours. The composition on the Verbascum flowers against a fine contrasting clean BG is excellent too.
I saw only one on Lesvos but it was quite worn, not fresh like this one!
Thanks and have a good week,

Hello Lou,
Very impressive to see the two faces of this amazing colourful butterfly. Hope I can see it soon... Well done MF! Cheers,
