[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

It is not esay to take pictures of Erebia species and to identify them with exactitude, if one is not specialist.

I hope that I'm right with my ID

The insect at left is probably a bumblebee-species, may be a Wood Bumblebee.

beautiful visitors in your image, nice capture. tfs.

Hi Anne,
Wonderful shot of this beautiful butterfly.
Superb lighting and I like your low POV.
Excellent DOF and composition.

Hello Anne
vraiment une belle composition, même insolite pour être réussite à reprendre ces deux petits insects ensemble. Très beaux les couleurs et les details. Péché pour peu de lumière.

Hello Anne,
Excellent definition with the flowers and the beautiful butterfly. A little busy with the bee, but what is one to do in the summertime when all things are busy and adjusting for the winter.
Have a great week,

Hello Anne,
This photo has a great collection of contrasting clear colours. Good composition and sharpness. Very good DOF.

Hi Anne,
Sorry about the IDs. But an excellent capture of these two different species of insects in one frame. Very well composed with sharp details. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hi Anne.
What a wonderful scene and picture. I love them. All is charming: fine flowers, impressive leaf BG, beautiful butterfly and bee. Quality of the shot is amazing. Fantastic DOF and sharpness of the entire scene. Soft light and colours cannot be more beautiful. Bravo. I give you my last favorite shot's point with great pleasure.

Bonsoir Annre,
Très belle composition avec une très agréable ordonnance des couleurs. C'est vrai que les moirés sont particulèrement difficiles à déterminer. En tout cas, il est parfaitement mis en valeur par le bouquet d'inules, appréciées aussi par le gourmand bourdon.
Bonne semaine,

Hi Anne. I have had a look in my books and i am sure you are right with your ID. As you say the fourth spots makes you wonder . Anyway. What ever it is you took a fine close up with good detail and rich colours. And a Bee as a bonus. All on the bright yellow flowers. well done TFS.

Hallo Anne
A splendid capture of a most beautiful dark coloured butterfly, with good detail and great colours. The texture and patterns are displayed well and is clearly seen. This specific butterfly reminds me of autumn. The hairy bee is also a great attraction. Good sharpness, good focus and greatly framed, making this an excellent close-up shot. Thank you very much for sharing. Enjoy your day.
Kind regards

Beautiful bouquet you have here with flowers and 2 cute little insects! This picture brings me Joy about the weather i can expect in Switzerland now.

Ah yes Anne...how we all long for summer and spring is only a few days away so we shall see soon images such as these with wonderful saturations and all sorts of natural things abound!

Anne, Good shot with lovely colors. The deails are very fine and sharp picture. Ganesh

Liebe Anne,
ein schönes Stück sommerlicher Bergwiese, mit dem Du uns hier erfreust, voll mit üppigem Leben. Verhaltene Farbigkeit unter einem offenbar bedecktem Himmel, der im Sommer oft eine Wohltat ist und angenehm besinnlich macht.
ID von Mohrenfaltern - auch für mich oft immer noch eine schwer zu knackende Nuss. Hier denke ich wegen der schwarz-weiss gescheckten Flügelfransen vorrangig an "Erebia ligea". (Aber auch "E. euyale" käme in Frage - zur Unterscheidung bräuchte es wohl noch eine Dokumentation der Unterseite). Peter Roos (batu) als unser bester Experte für Mohren meldet sich vielleicht noch zu Wort.
Mit Dank und herzlichen Grüßen,

hi Anne,
beautiful and beautiful picture, really a very well composed image with lots of interesting subjects and war colours, one of my preferred, bravissima
kind regards

Hi Anel
Each one minding his own business!! Very nicely done! Regards
