Lovely image of this mating pair, beautiful colors and composition. tfs.

Hello Fikret,
Beautiful colors and very fine details on this photo of these mating Butterflys, TFS!
Regards, Joska

A fantastic image of mating butterflies from your archives, Fikret.
The bright colours within the frame look so beautiful in these days of winter greyness and gloom.
Thanks for sharing it and best regards.

Hi, Fikret

This is a fine image of a mating pair of Maniola telmessia, the Turkish meadow brown. the main difference between this species and M. jurtina is the eye-spots on the underside of the hind wing of the male (the lower butterfly in your photograph). Very nice sharpness, lighting and colour.

Regards, Nigel.
