I am glad you are back with your archival. A very nice image which reminds us all of what will come from our time in hibernation.

Hi Claude. Not to sure of the ID. but its a good close up. you have captured the beautiful markings so well. with fine detail and natural colours. you have used the sun light so well. TFS.

Hi Claude,

Nice to see this wonderfully detailed butterfly, but really nice to see a picture taken back in the summer - reminding us of warmer days. Great composition, colours and light.

Kind regards,

Hello Claude,
the butterfly is shown from interesting point of view requiring great depth of field to show it with good sharpness. You succeeded well here. I#m not 100% sure but I think that it is
- Chlosyne harrisi
- family: Nymphalidae
Best wishes, Peter

Hi Claude
Beautiful butterfly. Nice POV, good sharpness. Nice OOF background but maybe you could blur it a little bit. Composition is very nice. Maybe you also could do a little highlights reducement
I like it very much
Best wishes

Hello Claude,
Superb capture of Harris' Checkerspot (Peter is right about the ID) taken with excellent sharpness and DOF contrasting nicely with the natural green BG. The POV and composition are also superb.
Well done and TFS!
