[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

My last posting was showing a male of the species. Here the female, with its paler coloration with almost a greenish tint. Towards the abdomen parts of the wings have a darker coloration too. Even the spots seem to have some other shapes, but this could be a regional variation. Mostly the females are a little bit bigger than the males.

Hi Anne

A beautiful capture of this lovely species. Excelllent sharpness and details. I like the upside down composition.


Bonjour Anne,
Superbe presentation upside down, une netteté et couleur bien naturelle

Una luz sobresaliente y unos colores que se salen de la pantalla por su belleza. Bien captadas las difíciles texturas de este género de mariposas. Profundidad muy lograda con el desenfoque que además da sensación de volumen y realismo. Un excelente trabajo.
Saludos Anne: Josep Ignasi.

Hello Anne,
another excellent view of this beautiful and bright butterfly. i like the sharpness that is seen by observing the fine hairs around its body.
I like the beauty your soft greenish background gives, it enhance the composition very much . Excellent with very pretty top view.


My dear friend Anne,
You present a master class for butterfly photography!

Perfect focus offers so many details, awakening in me the urge to know more about butterflies!

Nature's evolution- producing nearly perfect symetry - reminds me of the good old Rochrschach test...

Congratulations on your beautiful work, which is a pleasure to view.

Herzlich Gruesse und Wuensche fuer ein gutes Wochen Ende
Alles Liebe
