[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Fritillary (Euptoieta claudia, Nymphalidae)

Thanks to Dmitry (ostmeterium) for helping with the identification of this butterfly.

I come back after a couple months off, but many more hundreds... maybe thousands more pictures added to my collection. Now it is the time to let you discover some of my butterflies pics.

This picture was taken at the Brookfield Zoo near Chicago.

What a lovely and interesting shot that you have well done ! Composition, colors, exposure, background and DOF are very good. Congratulations Stephan and thanks for sharing.

Great light in this one. Like the contrast and the colours. It is different, but absolutely beautiful. ( did you use a filter??)

Hello Stephan,
I'd say it's a Variegated Fritillary (Euptoieta claudia, Nymphalidae).

Best regards,

Hi Stephan

You show your subject well. Good POV, nicely composed. Sharpness and detail are great. Good saturation of colour. Good work. TFS. :-)

An artistic composition, with soft light and warm color. I like the grad. BG tones as well. Good POV and DOF, producing a very pleasing frame :)
Nicely done & have a Great Weekend!

Re-Salut Stephan,
Cette photo est UNE RÉUSSITE!!!
Très belle composition! Palette de couleus très subtile et bien présentée. Détails nets du papillon et une profondeur de champ excellente! J'aime particulièremen les pétales qui remontent et qui semblent tenir ce papillon comme une main ouverte.
