[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Female amaryllis, "gatekeeper"

The name "Gatekeeper" may refer to its frequent occurrence near field gates and to the man who was responsible for the toll gates in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries when butterflies were more numerous than they are today.

Hi Didier,
interesting photo of this butterfly. Nice colours and very good composition. Maybe sharpness is not perfect, but who is perfect? :)
Thanks for sharing,
Maciek
