[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This butterfly was looking at me like she wants to hypnotise me.
Here is some notes about fritillaries.

The Nymphalidae is a family of about 5,000 species of butterflies.

These are typically fairly large butterfies, such as the emperor, admirals, tortoiseshells and fritillaries, which have very colourful upperparts. However, the underwings are dull and often look like dead leaves, which helps to conceal stationary or hibernating insects.

The front two legs are small, so these butterflies are effectively four-legged. The caterpillars are hairy or spiky, and the chrysalids have shiny spots.

Several species are attracted to Buddleia, the butterfly plant.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

The photo is in original size without crop.
I use PS for sharpnes, +5 saturation and resize for TN.
Thanks for looking.

Νίκο πολύ ωραία!!!

Δοκίμασε να τη γυρίσεις λίγο αριστερά για να οριζοντιωθεί η πεταλούδα.


Help!!! This enormous creature looks like an invasion from space!! To be serious: a fantastic picture!
