[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I 've been for two days in Lithuania and there on the meadow encounter this butterfly. It's female.
Male uppersides are an iridescent lilac blue with a thin black border. Females are brown with a row of red spots along the edges.

Witaj Pawle,
Ladny motyl. Wyrazny i w naturalnych barwach. Podszedles go dosc blisko. Mozesz zdradzic jakim obiektywem go robiles i czy miales jakies szklo przykrecone? Duze ISO - czy było slabe swiatlo? To tylko pytania techniczne z racji ciekawosci, bo fotka jest naprawde dobra.
Pozdrawiam - Roma

I like the fact that in your note you helped us determine gender. :)
Lovely shot - classic butterfly pose. Good color.

Hello Pawel,
Thanks for your comment on my male!! You've caught the female very well here displaying her colours and pattern. I would have cropped it a bit more on the right as the background is a bit noisy.
TFS and regards, Ulla

Hi Pawel, splendid female of Polyammatus Icarus with excellent details, perfect focus, very well done, ciao Silvio
:) tomorrow
