[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This specimen was shown to me by Helmut Presser who lives in the area, and has shown me some of the orchids of Bavaria. This is a unique isolated population, quite far from the typical habitat in the Alps. The caterpillars eat the Sedum I posted a few days ago. Due to overcollection and loss of habitat this species is considered "vulnerable".

The plant is Dactylorhyza fuchsii.

The WS shows the same with open wings.

Hello Ishi,
The wings on the right side are out of focus, a pity. It is disturbing the macro. The workshop photo is a lot better. But next time better.

Hello Ishi,
Very nice butterfly specie living in the Alps.....Never seen in the wild...It has such impressive colors. Probably the butterfly was moving when you take the shoot...

Ciao Ishi, greta macro of fantastic butterfly on beautiful flower, excellent perspective, splendid sharpness, fine details and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Ishi,

The flowers are helping to frame the butterfly. The point of view is showing the details of the Parnassius apollo butterfly. The good luminosity is giving nice tints to the colors. Have a nice day.
