I really like the composition and framing on this one. The OOF backround is excellent and makes them stand out well. Beautiful subtle colors and nice detail. Excellent shot!

Nice shot of the mating of this specie!
Very nice Marialuisa and two for one! Well composed with some very good details, colors and light. Nice POV of the "action" as well. Thank You.
Mating pair of Melitaea phoebe / Knoopkruidparelmoervlinder in Dutch /Knapweed Fritillary in English / Flockenblumen-Scheckenfalter in Deutsch / La mélitée des centaurées ou Grand Damier in French.
This species we don't have in the Netherlands, but quite common in the southern part of Europe.
Good colours and moment!
