I almost never succeeded to take a picture of this butterfly-species.
And the one I finally caught, seems to be arrived at the very end of its season...

The poor thing is literally at the end of its life cycle, Anne. Still, it makes a fine composition, perched on those lovely purple flower stalks.
You have captured a very crisp scene here with those bold camera settings.

Hi Anne,
unfortunatelly this is a really end of season. Today in the morning there was 12cm of snow over 1800m in Tatra mountains (I hope only for one-two days).
Beautiful view. Excellent point of view and presentation.
Have a nice evening,

Hallo Anne,
Ja seit paar Tagen finde ich nichts außer Vogel zu Fotografieren. Dein Schmetterling hat die beste Zeit hinter sich. Bild wie immer technisch und ästhetisch erste Sahne. Grüße Siggi

Bonsoir Anne.

C'est effectivement la fin de la saison pour tout le monde. L'automne et l'hivers approchet à grands pas.

Beau point de vue nous montrant bien la vie et la relation entre insecte et plantes ; et excellente composition de la photographie. Netteté et profondeur de champ parfaitement gérées. Belle saturation des couleurs et bon contraste.

A bientôt.
