[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
These beautiful fritillaries were flying together, in Switzerland, with the superficially similar Dark-green fritillary, Argynnis aglaja and High brown fritillary, Argynnis adippe. The latter is particularly close in underside markings but a couple of features help. The forewing is concave, the row of underside silver markings (postdiscal) is continuous and the silver centered brown spots are smaller.

They, like many other species, were rather keen to take moisture, especially sweat, like the one pictured left is doing

Hi Sazbo,fantastic macro in a very difficult light,the same conditions of mine posted today...but you work better and the result is an impressive portrait of this very nice fritillary.Sharpness,colors and composition always at the top.Thanks for share,have a nice day,Luciano.

Hello Jozsef,
A technically superb well composed shot of A. niobe resting with the wings closed. Nice contrast with the OOF natural BG but maybe a little too dark, so I tried the WS!
Thanks and best regards,

Hello Jozsef,
Great sharp detailed photo in a very good composition. Although the flower and butterfly are in the shadow, the colours are very natural. Beautiful OOF BG.

Hello Jozsef, great image, super details and sharpness. A splendid image. Paolo

Ciao Szabo. Bit noised in my opinion but perfect details and intrigant playing of light/shadows.


Hello Szabo,

an good picticture from you, not so good as your previous one but good enough.
I see a white stripe on the butterfly maybe to much sharpened?
Razor sharpness, good pov with fine colours.
