Impressive shot of the Cynthia Fritillary from a interesting POV! The sharpness and DOF is well managed. The colors of the butterfly are at their best though the colors of the flower are bit overexposed due to the usage of flash but it hardly matters here. Your powerful and colorful subject overpowers this minute problem. Very well seen!
Thanks for posting.
PS: Thanks for your kind remarks on my picture about Moroccan Meadow Brown. As I am not expert in this field, therefore it I can't reply to your question about its migration to central Germany :) Infact, I looked in the web for the species with similar looks, and only I could able to conclude that it may be M.Meadow Brown. Thanks again for stopping by.
Hello again, Peter
How low can you go? ;) It's nice to see an alternative viewpoint, and not easy to do. The flash contribution makes the image look a little surreal, but I like it!
Best wishes, Nigel.

Hola Peter, vi que repasate mi galería y dejastes comentarios en algunas de mis fotografías, lo cual agradezco. Veo que repites la técnica de alguna de tus tomas, por lo que deduzco que el buen resultado no es fruto del azar. Son tomas espectaculares poco habituales y de bastante dificultad, principalmente por el contraluz y ángulo de enfoque. Un punto de vista diferente y creativo. Saludos: Josep Ignasi.

I could recognise that this was your shot before I saw the name! A great way to see the underside of a female E. cynthia taken with technical perfection in fine lighting and nicely composed on the ranunculus flower against a pleasing OOF mountain and sky Bg.
Thanks for sharing this delight!

Superb use of the flashbulb and great dominate of the against light.
Special congratulations because of the POV, is frankly original and me likes the result.
Good colors, very balanced work.
Greetings & TFS!
Deine letzten Bilder sind von grosser Schönheit, ich werde später auf sie zurückkommen. Ich begrüsse hier mal erst eine "fast-Nachbarin", die mich irgendwie in Ihrer Matronen-Pose an meine Oberwalliser Gossmutter erinnert.
Bildaufbau ist typisch für Dich, der Blitz war sicher nötig um den Kontrast mit dem Himmel zu entschärfen.
Bin immer noch nicht gesund und verzweifle fast..

A different and very nice perspective of cynthia using the flash to highlight the underside. Beautiful details and colours of butterfly and flower that stand out against the natural background.
Many thanks and regards, Ulla
It is, indeed, a great pleasure to see and appreciate your outstanding nature photography, Peter. Sadly, I have very little time to spare for TN in view of my current occupation.
This is a very distinct Fritillary endemic to Alps and you have captured it with your usual, highly gifted eye for aesthetics and technical excellence. The POV is unique and very appealing.

A real beauty, blessed with such an assortment of beautiful colours and markings, and you have captured it well to show it off. I just love the angle in which you have captured it, showing details from another viewpoint. I also like the clarity of the big black eye and the way its wings are standing upright and almost ready for lift off. It was a great pleasure stopping by this image filled with colour and happiness and joy that is written all over it. Thanks for sharing.

auch diese Aufnahme der Unterseite von einem Cynthia Weibchen ist dir gut gelungen. Der Blitz erzeugt nur wenige überbelichtete Stellen auf der Blume, aber der Schmetterling kommt so ganz toll zur Geltung. Der nach oben gerichtete, tiefe POV gefällt mir sehr gut.

the focusing on the Euphydryas cynthia is perfect. Excellent the composition of colors that give a great contrast between the little butterfly and the pink flower with fine details and optimal flash light.

Hi dear Peter.
Now I have some time you continue to acquaintance with your wonderful gallery. As usual for you POV is creative and very attractive. Flash work is delicate enough and BG is well reproduced. However, the key point of the shot is charming butterfly and flower which are reflected with all their impressive details. My kind regards and warm wishes.

this one is very dramatic and superb low angle presentation. I like the effect it gives, it is not like a butterfly but it is so enormous like a stealth fighter.
Excellent presentation with special approach.
