thank you Peter,
It's a nice examplar, the composition is nice, not spectaculair, it's not good in pov on the left wing and thats a shame, farther very good job with a good note, well done Peter.

I love this photo, the shadow and the coulor are great. Thanks for sharing.
Very Interesting note!!!
Good picture , with colors (blue hue on the wings!!) I like it :-)
Excellent capture, but i think the stone below the butterfly is overexposed, did a quick workshop to correct it , will post it, let me know what you think

Superb image on an excellent BG. The colors are wonderful, which is not obvious for this type of butterfly.
Only one small nit, the area out of focus on the left wing.

ich kann immmer nur staunen und Dich auch beneiden welche schöne Schmetterlinge bei Euch herumschwirren!!! Hier hat man in Sachen Umwelt wohl viel mehr gesündigt!! :-(
Sehr schönes Foto vom kleiner Schillerfalter. Auch er sitzt wieder zum Wärme tanken auf der Erde! Sehr gute Schärfe, natürliche Farben und ein schöner Bildaufbau. Deine Anmerkung zum Falter ist super. Danke für diese sehr schöne Presentation. Ich wünsche Dir noch einen schönen Restsonntag.
The cousin looks as beautiful as the emperor. It is more common that A. iris around here. As I know, there is also a bit of sexual dimorphism in this specie, as only the males have the blue iridization (not so strong like in A. iris) meanwhile the females are just plain brown. I'm not very sure of this. Please correct me if you are more informed in this matter.

Very impressive capture, Peter. The wing's shadow on the BG adds a positive dimension to the picture. The exhaustive not is a goldmine of information.
Thanks for sharing.

Beautifull butterfly, lovely details and blue colours on its wings. Perfect and very interesting note. I saw this kind of butterfly only once in my life.
Good sharpness on the butterfly's far wing and body. Pity you couldn't get enogh DOf to include the forewing. The rosck is slightly OE, which I think you should have corrected before posting.

Thank you, Peter - another new species to me - and you manage to collect it while visiting an Inn! Very challenging ;) The clythie form is particularly beautiful - thanks for showing it.

It's not easy to capture the blue reflects of this species. You did it here and it's already a great performance.
Very nice picture.

Lovely shot. Very well composed. Good depth of colour. Well done. TFS.
Hi Peter, Another better than good photo. Only comment is the left wings' focus is a bit soft. A larger f/stop could have done the trick. I always try to get the subject of a macro totally in focus unless it is the eyes or mouth etc, that I want to show. Still very good on technicalities.
