I think this is the Issoria lathonia. But it seems I am not right I have been told that it is a Vanessa cardui.

He would not let me see himself with his wings open, but I like his colours this way also. Hope you will to

Ha kristy,

Een goede shot van deze kleurrijke vlinder,scherp en gedetaailleeerd,misschien iets teveel gecropped,


Buenas Kristy,

no es una issoria lathonia, es una vanessa cardui. De todas formas es muy bonita la foto con las alas plegadas. Enhorabuena y un saludo. TFS.

Hello Kristy,
Wonderful capture of painted lady.Details,colors,sharpness,POV and composition are excellent.Maybe framing is a little tight but it's a minor nit.Overall i liked your work a lot.

Hi Kristy,
Nice shot, amazing colours. Good detail and exposure and I like the tight crop, it lets us see the Butterfly really close up. Nice work.

Hi Kricty,
Very nice shot! Great colour, excellent details and well composed.

Hello Kristy
I love this shot and the composition.
The butterfly looks happy and the colors and details are bright and very colorful.
Great POV and BG and the butterfly is a bit confined but still manage to look wonderful.
I have the chance to look at your portfolio and you have great shots.
Congratulation and TFS.

Ha Kristy!

Mooie macro met super details!
Ja het is vast familie. Prachtig getekende vlinder vind ik het en redelijk makkelijk te fotograferen.

Zitten er veel andere soorten in deze tuin?
