[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Issoria lathonia, male, female.

This pair of Fritillaries was courting in a meadow in Colfiorito one afternoon. He was doing his very best to impress her. She was leading him a merry dance, but I think she gave in eventually.

Hand held in bright sunlight. Cropped and sharpened in Elements 6.

Hello Alan,
Just with ISO 100 and 1/180s !.... The light helped to an excellent result and majestic colors. I like this 2 butterflies in a picture, it is not easy to focus but you've done well! ... A natural image and very eloquent!
Regards, TFS

Hello Alan,

Fantastic 'in hot pursuit' capture of this amorous couple. The colors are fantastic & the POV & composition is well appreciated, especially considering the usual fleeting nature of these BF trysts. Very well executed indeed!
