Painted Lady
Vanesse du chardon

The Painted Lady is very present this year and I had the chance to see them a lot in different places. Yesterday there were quite a lot of them in our Botanical garden and some of them looked very fresh, like this one which was perched on this beautiful yellow flower, of which unfortunately I don't know the name.
A last picture before leaving for the mountains..
A bientôt!

Hi Anne. We to have had a lot of them this year even in my small garden. As you say this is a fresh looking one. Which you have taken with fine detail in the colourful wings. Which we can see from your top POV. Not to sure about the flower as well. TFS.

Have a good week ahead.

This lady is a beauty.
Nice composition and sharpness.
Well done.

Maravillosa composición con excelente encuadre. El juego de colores y volúmenes impacta en el observador nada más contemplar la fotografía.

Un excelente trabajo técnico y artístico:

Ciao Anne,
bellissima immagine di Vanessa del cardo, quest'anno così numerosa nel suo viaggiare incessante(sicuramente a milioni), trovo la composizione straordinariamente bella per questo abbinamento di fiori con e senza farfalla, colori molto belli e ovviamente "solari" con la rappresentazione stessa del sole.
Grazie e complimenti
Buona settimana
Con amicizia

Hallo Anne,
Dein Bild macht richtig Lust auf Sommer, herrlich diese Farben und die Details sind super scharf.
Klasse Bildeintailung und Praesentation.
Liebe Grüße Siggi

hello Anne
exceptional composition, with very good colours,a beautiful macro photo

Hallo Anne!

Der Distelfalter wird auf TN oft gezeigt, aber bei weitem nicht immer so schön, wie Du es hier tust. Die Farbkombination schafft eine wohltuende Harmonie und die ausgezeichnete Schärfe gibt Einblick in zahlreiche Details.

As liebs Grüessli


N.B. Habe auch keine Nahrichten von Dieter. Bin vom 11. bis 21. Juli abwesend, melde mich danach.

Hi Anne,

superb capture with the bright colours and good clarity. Nice picture. HGood macro and nice positioning.


Hi Anne,

Hi Anne

Great composition here with these lovely yellow flowers.

Bonjour Anne,

Voici une belle composition de cette belle dame. C'est sans doute lié à l'environnement, mais les couleurs sont plus "mauves" que d'habitude. Je le vois plus "orange" de par ici.
Ceci dit, c'est une présentation peu commune qui est très plaisante à regarder.
Merci pour ce partage


Hallo Anel
Absolutely delightful viewing pleasure has unfolded in front of my eyes upon opening your image. What a lovely “picture” Details of both the flower and the insect is bright and clear and well displayed. Everything is just “pretty” This is an image for a little girl’s room. I really like everything in this photograph but especially the white lining alongside the butterfly’s wings. The image is well focused, super sharp and the composition is lovely. Just love the roughly shaped petals of the flower, and the tiny insect captured on one of the petals. Thanks for sharing. Best regards

Hi Anne,
real beauty captured here. the colours are so special and the flowers are well arranged in diagonal composition.
Excellent clarity and the brightness of the shot is really outstanding.
The combination is very compatible.


Bonjour Anne,
Très belle composition,le papillon est superbe et semble sortir de son cocon, il n'y a vraiment rien a critiquer sur ta photo
J'espère que tu as bon temps dans tes montagnes
A bientot

Hello Anne
quest'anno queste bellissime Vanessa Cardui sono diffusissime e ciò mi fa pensare al buono stato di salute dei nostri prati. La tua è ben composta in una cornice che racchiude con un'ottima messa a fuoco ed un'altrettanto interessante profondità la piccola farfalla posata su questi bei fiori gialli. Molto belli i colori ed i dettagli ottimemente ritratti.

Hello Anne,

Fantastic close up.
Beautiful colours with great details.
Light,focus and composition are splendid.
Good note.
