Dark Clouded Yellow

A picture from last year. This year I have almost seen none of this species.
I wonder if this is due to natural fluctuations or if the bad summer we had, has ome influence on the populations.

Shalom Anne,

Beautiful specimen! The different shades of yellow are surprisingly lovely together!

All the best,


What a sharp and crisp image, Anne!
The colours of the two subjects match to perfection.
The appeal of the composition is overwhelming.
Thanks and regards.

Hello Anne - Eye-catching composition with well managed reflection of light from yellow. Beautiful butterfly with good details and sharpness. Well managed BG too. Thanks for sharing. Regards and have a nice WE - Srikumar

Hi Anne,
Beautiful photo with excellent sharpness, pleasant composition and unbelievable color contrast between the bright yellow and the grey-ish white of the background. Perfect lights and depth also as well. An aesthetic piece of art. Marvellous!
Best regards, László

Bonjour Anne

La lumière et les couleurs sont très belles, surtout le mariage entre les tons
de couleurs du papillon avec les tons de couleurs de la fleur est très beau,
et si tu aurais pris la photo de loin avec l'environnement autour le camouflage
du papillon serait superbe, TFS


Liebe Anne,
eine Freude, die vollendete farbliche Übereinstimmung des bunten Postillions mit der von ihm besuchten Blüte zu sehen! Ihr heiteres Gelb und Orange wird behutsam von dem neutralen Hintergrund und einem kleinen Stück blauen Himmels kontrastiert. Immer wieder schön, in Deinem reichhaltigen Archiv Entdeckungen zu machen. Freue mich aber natürlich auch auf weitere Naturfotografie von Dir, die wie die unvergleichlichen Beobachtungen von Menschen Deiner Street Photography mit ihrer subtilen erzählerischer Kraft und vollendetem Sinn für Licht, Farbharmonien und Komposition bestechen.
Mit herzlichen Gruss aus Wien,
