Painted Lady (Vanessa cardui) - Vanessa del cardo (I)
Family: Nymphalidae.

Flight Time: April - October.
Size: 54-58mm
Altitude: 0-3000m

A strong migrant which boosts its populations in northern Europe by annual migrations from its breeding grounds in the south. It seems not to be able to survive the winter further north, so it is scarce some years, common others.
Only possible confusion is with the extremely rare migrant Vanessa virginiensis which has to come from north America, which it does very, very rarely.

Hi Angelo,
Superb! The colours here are beautiful. I like the composition and POV, very nicely done. Maybe I would like to see slightly deeper DOF with the whole wing in focus. Nonetheless, great capture!

Nice detail and exposure, good frontal view too, well taken.


magnifique prise de ce papillon, belles couleurs et bons détails

Hi Angelo

Lovely colour tones. Nicely composed. Looks great against the OOF BG. Very nice work. TFS.

Hi Angelo.

Wonderful capture.It looks like the butterfly came out of a dream world.


Hi Angelo
Nice detail and exposure and beautifull butterfly.

sembra venire fuori dallo schermo.
please, potrebbe dire anche a me dove a torre di fine le egrette si fanno scattare?

thank you

Ciao Angelo, bellissima anche per l'effetto sfocato del finale dell'ala, concordo con Mario-Roberto, sembra uscire dallo schermo.
Bellissimi anche i colori e l'insieme della composizione.
Bravissimo, Ciao Silvio

Presa "di faccia" cosi non l'avevo mai vista eppure l'ho fotografata!!
