I took the picture of the Meadow Brown near a forrest at my hometown.

Family: Satyridae
Flight Time: May - September
Size: 40-58mm
Altitude: 0-1600m

A very widespread, and often extremely numerous species. The male (below left) has less orange on the forewing than the female. It is quite a variable species however and is prone to fading towards the end of summer.

Martina, this a colorful and vibrant shot.

Other members have already mentioned some noise on the background and, maybe, some soft focus.

Apart from that, I enjoy the picture a lot.

Great pov and composition. Excellent vivid colors.


I also think the picture could have been sharper, but I really like the picture. The composition is fantastic. Well done and thanks for sharing.


Good close up Martina!
Beautiful colors, great light, good DOF. Perhaps a little more sharper could be nice.
Good work!

Hi Martina!
Personal assessment of the photo: great.
Strong visual impact.
A not easy shot, IMHO.
Aptness of the photo for the site: excellent.
Personal assessment of the note: very good.

Hi Martina!
Excellent picture. Even though the butterfly is quite dull coloured from itself, the sharpness and details make it look excellent. The flowers brighten it all up. Excellent composition!
