I am jalous because this summer I saw Small Tortoiseshell but I couldn't capture one, they were so wild. Congratulations Heinz and thanks for sharing this nice shot.

Très jolie photo. J'aime beaucoup la composition de l'image et les détails de l'aile de ce papillon. La netteté est fantastique, et les couleurs très intense.

Bien joué !

Hallo Heinz,
Du hattest dieses Jahr "unverschämtes" Glück mit Schmetterlingen. Ich habe noch nicht mal so viele in der Natur gesehen, wie Du uns hier schon gezeigt hast. Wo findest Du sie nur. Und dann noch diese tollen Fotos, jedes ist einzigartig, schön arangiert, scharf und mit tollem Licht. Super, vielen Dank

Hi Heinz,

Excellent shot of this beauty and well done on the composition.
A little noise reduction will rid of noise. PSE 3 has it's own and works quite well.
