[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This shot is fresh from outside - made 2 hours ago.
I'd like to dedicate it for my special butterfly-lovers Peter I(batu) and Peter II (peter stoeckl).

I think - Peter (batu) - you also will be shocked a little when I tell you that I saw 5 - 6 of this wonderful Small Tortoiseshell (Nymphalis urticae) and also two Brimstone and one Comma (Polygonia c-album).
We already talked about the changing clima - and I'm sure I never saw butterflies here in Bavaria (altitude 650 m above sea-level) in February! Normaly they are common from May - Oktober!!!

I hope we don't have to worry, so let's enjoy to see all the beauties around.

What do you all think?

Hi Sabine,
You're so lucky to have all those bright colours to look at while here everything is black/grey/white at the moment! You've captured this Tortoiseshell very nicely with the llittle blue Veronica matching it beautifully! Even though it has over-wintered it looks pretty fresh.
Many thanks, Ulla

Hi Sabine.
Is tall story see hereof butterfly in February. Is that a this year extraordinary and or it'll be in future normal??
Amazing colors and beautiful combination with very nice flower.
Well composed and great exposure.
TFS and best greetings.

Hi Sabine,
I think this was a great oportunity to get this fresh and colorful picture!
The blue flower makes great with the blue spots on the wings.
And the intese and vivid orange contrast so much with the greens and dark bakground.
I like so much the composition with the insect filling the frame.
Congratulations and thanks for share.
Best regards,

Not only butterflies but flowers too in February, Sabine!
The blue bloom and the spots of same colour on the border of this butterfly's wings match to perfection. You have a very discerning eye as a photographer.
Tortoiseshell is my favourite butterfly, so thanks for sharing this beautiful image.
Take care.

Hello Sabine,
You are showing a butterfly that we look forward to seeing in about a month's time if the spring decides to come. Well at least global warming isn't all negative when you can capture the Small tortoiseshell in February!
Nice colourful well composed shot with the little veronica flower.
TFS and cheering us up in the cold white north!
Best wishes, Ivan

Lovely colourful sly !!that small violet flower match the wing designs :)..Very nice composed&liked the POV!!

Magnífico collage de colores. Buena composición y original encuadre.
Un cordial saludo, JL.

bonjour sabine
un peu d"USM" sur le papillon l'aurait rendu un peu plus net IMHO.
par contre les couleurs sont belles.
je crois reconnaitre un jolie petite fleur familiere.

Hi Sabine,
Vivid colours you've got in February from this nice butterfly. As you ask us about what we think, I think summer in South Spain may be a hell in the earth!
Best regards, José M.

Guten Abend Sabine,
danke für die Falterwidmung. An Tagfaltern tauchen zur Zeit zum Glück nur die Imago-Überwinterer auf, dazu gehören der Kleine Fuchs, der C-Falter und der Zitronenfalter, die du heute beobachtet hast. Termingerecht finden sich zudem trotz fehlender Kälte die Winterspanner ein. Heute habe ich ein schönes Exemplar von Agriopis leucophaearia gefunden und fotografisch festgehalten (ist vielleicht morgen zu sehen). Es ist also noch nicht alles aus dem Gleichgewicht.
Ich wünsche die für die kommende Saison schöne Falterbegegnungen, z.b. alpine Erebia.
Schöne Grüße, Peter

Hello Sabine,
Wonderful close up.I liked POV,vivid colors,framing and composition a lot.Have a great weekend!

Hi Sabine
In fact we have very strange winter in Europe this year :)
I can observe it to in Poland. But I've not realised that it could be so warm in Germany.
I like the composition and warm colours of your picture.
Everything is sharp.
And I really appreciate this blue flower (as far as I am concerned it is Veronica chamaedrys) as a bonus.
Best wishes

Bonjour Sabine
Très joli ce macro, les détails et les contrastes sont réussis très jolis couleurs
et beau BG
Bravo et merci JP

Hello Sabine,
I like this colorful post of this nice specie. Its environment is so beautiful with this little purple flower. The sharpness is good all over the insect but why I have this impression that it could be sharper. I often have this impression with this specie and I don't think that it comes form your capture but from the kind of butterfly. Do you understand what I mean? I'm not sure I'm being very coherent ;) Well done and TFS,

Bella captura Sabine de estos dos ejemplares tan conocidos ya en TN en una misma escena.
Maravillosos colores con estética ubicación y rotación de la mariposa, mostradas con buen foco y agudeza, aunque el fondo no colabora con el deseable desenfoque.
Un cordial saludo desde un caluroso Buenos Aires... Ricardo

Beautiful capture Sabine of these two so well-known specimen already in TN in oneself scene.
Wonderful colors with aesthetic location and rotation of the butterfly, shown with good focus and sharpness, although the bottom doesn't collaborate with the desirable out of focus.
A cordial greeting from a warm Buenos Aires... Ricardo

love it! the color from that little flower matches the color on that beatuiful butter fly.awesome shot. TFS

Hi Sabine

It still feels like winter over here. I can't wait until spring to see lovely sights like these. It sounds like you had a lovely day spotting all the butterflies. I love the vibrant colours here and it is a lovely composition.



Hello Sabine,
This is a pleasant sign of spring coming!
Can you please send some my way too..?
Macro work is skilfully done, good point of view and fine details...
Subject is well framed, excellent clarity in colours!
Pablo -

It is a lovely specimen, nicely captured and presented. I am shocked you captured this in Germany in such an early season.
Spain will be one of the most affected places in the world due to the climatic change, and I do worry very much about it.
Best wishes, Felipe.

Hallo Sabine,
hab ich doch glatt Deinen schönen Beitrag - von Dir damals frisch ins Netz gestellt - bis heute übersehen! Mit Verspätung: Danke für dieses ungewöhnlich farbenfrohe Winterbild mit Vanessa und Veronica, und für die liebenswürdige Widmung!
Mit herzlichen Grüßen,
