[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I had to search in my archiv for a shot that gives us positive spirits, because it's made on a warm and sunny day.
In these days it's cold everywhere in Europe and snow has been falling here, no sun at all.
So I hope to give everybody some warm feelings with my little Heath Fritillary.

Melitaea athalia:
That's a day-active butterfly.
wingspan 32 - 40 mm
They love grassland with many flowers and edges of the woods until 2000 m altitude

It's certainly a bright flower Sabine. And the butterfly looks so good on it. He's nice and sharp, but I'm sorry you missed a bit of his wing. Otherwise, a good job. TFS

Hallo Sabine, da hast Du aber einen "Schönen" ausgegraben. Der deutsche Name ist besonders toll: *Wachtelweizenscheckenfalter*. Ich frage mich wie man aus so einen ausgefallenen Namen kommt. - Dein Foto, Spitze wie immer. Sehr schöne Farben (was ist da für einen Blume?)und sehr gute Schärfe. Evtl. hättest rechts einen Tick mehr Platz geben können. Diesen Schmettling habe ich übrigens noch nie in "Natura" gesehen. Danke für dieses sehr schöne Schmetterlingsfoto. Ich wünsche Euch ein schönes (schneereiches...tz.tz.tz.) Wochenende.

Nice shot of the Heath Fritillary. Very good sharpness and summer colors. TFS

Great image Sabine, interesting point of view that gets both the flower and the butterfly great in the image. I like te rich saturated colours and the very sharp details in the image. Very well done!

I love the shot Sabine,
fantastic one out of your archive, my archive is also full with good photo's. The composition here is very strong, the pov and the dof are good, it's a shame about the little piece of the wing on the right side, but I like the photo a lot, very good job.
