Hello to all on this beautiful sunny and hot sunday.
Now I like to show you this beautiful butterfly.
Please could anybody help here with the ID?
Heinz (wallhalla15) - our butterfly-specialist is ill, so he can't help, I hope he will be back soon, all the best for him on this way. I miss him with his phantastic shots and the positive feedback he gives to everybody. All the best for you, my friend.

So keep well and fit everybody - I send my greetings to all members in the world, bye.

Now I know it's a Hamadryas Februa Ferentina.
Thank you so much, Peter (batu) and Ricardo (RII) for the kompetent information.

Hi WG,
WOW...Beautiful in all aspects. Ideal POV and very sharp. Colours are simply fantastic.
Sorry can't help with ID.

Hello Sabine!
I always want butterflies pictures (whenever possible, of course) to include some pretty, colorful flower like this. I like your POV and tight framing. In spite of stopping down to f/16 and flash use your background is not dark at all. I guess the leaves behind must have been really close to the subject. Regards,

Thanks for sharing it.

Hi Sabine,
very nice b-fly, great wings, fantastic pattern and colours. I like it.
Rgs, Aleksander

Jetzt muß ich doch erst einmal bei meiner Freundin vorbeischauen. ;-)
Danke - Dir für Deine Wünsche und das erstklassige Schmetterlingsfoto. Du hast diesen an und für sich ziemlich unscheinbaren Schmetterling (im Schmetterlingshaus)zu einer Schönheit gemacht. Einfach toll Sabine!!! IN diesem Fall war der Blitz goldrichtig! Technisch - wie immer perfekt. Schade nur, daß es nicht von mir ist. ;-)
Danke Dir und weiter so.
Heinz, der jetzt jede Nacht als Kampfpilot durchstartet ;-)

- Auch von hier aus ein dickes Lob an Peter (batu) mit seiner Bestimmung des Falters. Mein David Carter wäre hierbei eine Fehlanzeige gewesen.

Great macro work on the butterfly..!
Well framed and a good point of view... Silky soft textures make it very appealing, combined with the fine details and good natural colours!

Exquisita presentacion Wishnu con un colorido y nitidez maravillosos.
Atinado uso del flash con bellos colores, buenos contrastes y un ajustado encuadre, como personalmente a mí me gusta.
Usas el flash propio de la 350D o externo?
Saludos... Ricardo

Exquisite presentation Wishnu with wonderful coloring and sharpness.
Accurate use of the flash with beautiful colors, good contrasts and tight frames, as personally I like it.
Do you use the owner flash of the 350D or external?
Greetings... Ricardo

Excellent picture of this great butterfly! The colors are bright and natural and composition works just fine! The photo is tac sharp and with great DOF! TFS!


Hello Sabine,
Some days no seeing your gallery and I found many interesting and beautiful pictures.
This is incredible, the butterfly has a "barroque" design in its wings. The details and composition that you captured are very good.I never see a butterfly like this.
Thanks for sharing!

Hello Stephan und Sabine,
I'm afraid I can't add much to all that was already said here - just a great picture!

Best regards,

Great species. Never saw this one before. Amazing colours in the wings. Technically well done...

beautiful shot excellent mix of colors almost like abstract art very good detail and contrast
