Though closely cropped, this is a fantastic macro of a beautiful species of Frittilaries, Anne. The green pigment on the nether wings merges beautifully with other colours.
Though it is a huge macro, the sharpness is perfect. As for composition, you are a master of it.
Best regards.

Hello Anne
great sharp detailed capture of this Nymphalidae. Splendid clear colours. Very good POV, DOF and composition.
Livio

Splendid detail. Great shot.

Bonsoir Anne
Avec un tel cliché, facile de reconnaître ce papillon. Très belle image de grand nacré, colorée et spectaculaire. J'aime beaucoup le léger contre jour, qui illumine les ailes à la manière d'un vitrail.
Amicalement,
Goldy

Hello Anne,
fantastic image of butterfly. Colors, light, background and details very very beautiful. A great picture. Regrds, Paolo

Hi Anne,
A lovely capture of this beautiful Dark Green Fritillary. Very well composed although close crop. Good sharp details. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Una depurada y particlar técnica la tuya; en esta ocasión con puntos
fuertes y débiles. Como positivo la gama de colores y atractivas
tonalidades; en lo negativo el encuadre tan cerrado, aunque es mi gusto particular.
Sea como fuere , un buen trabajo en tu línea.
Un abrazo: Josep Ignasi.

Hallo Anne,

eindrückliches Bild von Deinem Perlmutterfalter. Wunderschön, wie das Licht an den Flügelspitzen alles aufleuchtn lässt. Und das Perlmutt! Schon toll, diese Viecher! Gratuliere zum Bild.

Ich habe erst jetzt entdeckt, dass Du eine Sammlung "Butterflies of Switzerland" angelegt hast, guuut. Das ist sehr interessant: fast niemand ausser uns Dreien publiziert Schmetterlings- Bilder aus der Schweiz. Jetzt werde ich meine Sammlung nach noch nicht veröffentlichten Schmetterlingen absuchen. Gehören aus Deiner Sicht auch Kleinschmetterlinge ("Moths", Heterocera) dazu? Klar, dass man Zygaenidae dazu nimmt.

Zum Photographieren habe ich momentan keine Zeit, ich helfe mit beim Kämpfen gegen bestimmte Windkraftanlagen.... :-)

Herzlich grüsst Dich
Dieter

Hello Anne,
very close shot of this multi coloured butterfly.
The white patches are very detailed and the sharpness is lively with the streak of light hitting the head. Very good effect to the view.
Fine hairs on the head is well seen.

Regards,
Foozi

Hi! Anne

My eyes are filled on seeing this marvel of beauty. This butterfly is aptly named with the colors of pearl. Optimum sharpness fascinating our eyes mounted on the flower.

Mario

Liebe Anne,
im Streiflicht scheint der gesamte Falter in einer selten gesehenen Fülle an Glanz wie Perlmutt zu schimmern. Opulent und formatfüllend in Szene gesetzt, mit zauberhaft reichhaltiger und dennoch zarter Farbpallette und einer außerordentlichen Fülle an Details ein hervorragendes Portrait dieses hübschen Falters!
Mit Dank und herzlichen Grüßen,
Peter
