Going by the superior quality of this picture, my conviction is re-confirmed that good photography and digital age are not synonymous, Peter.
This is a brilliant capture of this attractive species of butterflies taken 18 years ago with your film camera.
The focus on the subject is immaculate and so are the colours and details.
Thanks for sharing this old GEM and best regards.

questa foto pre-digitale mantiene ancora tutte le sue qualità e la sua freschezza nonostante gli anni trascorsi !
La specie che presenti oggi è poi particolarmente vistosa con quei suoi marcati ocelli neri.
Un Genere veramente affascinante quello delle Erebia, con rappresentanti forse meno appariscenti rispetto ad altri gruppi, ma con una ricchezza di specie e di forme intraspecifiche veramente inesauribile e complessa!
Grazie per farcele conoscere e apprezzare.

I like the colour pattern of the picture. Colour of the BG supplements of the colour palette of the butterfly so nicely. Posture and wingspread of the insect as well as the POV are superb. I like the nice details and perfect sharpness of the butterfly image. My best wishes and TFS.

This surely was not an easy achievement with a film SLR and an extension ring, made me remember some of my old macro works with reverse adapters, bellows and bulky SLRs like a Nikon F2. Good work indeed, and TFS.

As you say, extraordinarily strong markings. Very fine result, thanks.

A great capture!
I like so much the patterns and colours got on the insect's wings, they're really appealing.
You're very accurate with the info and the ID.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

The picture is very old but it's still very interesting. It's the first time I've seen this species. Thanks
