Altro acquisto rossonero dopo Ronaldinho, contento Roberto?
Zygaena, ma la specie non l'ho riconoscita, a voi la soluzione
Grazie Peter, penso Zygaena filipendulae, anche se come dici è difficile da distinguere

Hi Silvio,

Nice sharp picture of this butterfly. The contrast between insect and flower looks great.

Thank you for sharing,

Come dice Luciano: colori stupendi. Ma con un po' di "amichevole perfidia" hai voluto sottolineare la testa nerazzurra e le ali e coda rossonere! Sei grande!

Hola Silvio,
buena macro con efectivo foco y pov,
colores y buen encuadre.
saludos amigo.

Ciao Silvio,
your picture shows the bright light of mid summer reflected from white blossoms and the colourful burnet in powerful contrasts. White, black, and bright red in bright sunshine make a really difficult target. (My job at the neighbouring image was easier as the sky was overcast.) You clearly made a good job it to show structures in the black forewings, and the delicious transparency of crimson red hindwings. I like the upward motion. A beautiful picture of summer.
Thank you!
With best regards,

P.S.: The species in my opinion seems to be "Zygaena filipendulae", but even more likely the very similar "Zygaena transalpina" that should show white tips of antennae. I think it does.

Bonita la siempre complicada Zygaena para el fotógrafo. Algo justa de enfoque pero un buen encuadre.
Un abrazo: J. Ignasi

Merhaba Silvio,beyaz cicegin uzerinde kirmizi siyah guzel olmus.Net ve hos bir kare,ellerine saglik,selamlar :))

Ciao Silvio,
una bella macro di Zygaena, non tanto difficile da fotografare perchè non si muove neanche se le spari, ma piuttosto impegnativo trovare le condizioni di luce giuste per la resa di colori naturali, ci sei riuscito molto bene senza troppi riflessi e con una buona nitidezza.
Grazie e complimenti

Hi Silvio,

This is wonderful! The vivid black and red butterfly shows off so well against the pale flower. The markings are magnificent with superb details. There is nothing like that around here.


What a pleasure to see the same moth side by side on the gallery -- yours and Peter's, Silvio!
The open wings of this eye-catching moth display lovely colours.
Well done and thanks.

hello Silvio,

This is a very good close-up of the butterfly!
The dark wings give the impression of a black cloak!
Good composition. There is a little over-exposure on the b/g flowers but it in no way detracts from the butterfly.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hello Silvio,
Lovely capture of this Six-spot Burnet with wings nicely open showing the bright red of the underwing. Great focus and sharp details.
Due to their dark colour they're always hard to capture and the background is rather over exposed but it makes it stand out very nicely.
TFS and regards, Ulla
