Hallo Ton,
Onwaarschijnlijk mooie foto. De kleuren zijn zo helder in schitterend licht. Ook de vage achtergrond werkt er aan mee. Fantastische compositie, diepte en scherpte. Voor mij het foto hoogtepunt van vandaag. Super foto!

A fine shot in warm light, but the Silver-bordered Fritillary does not occur in Europe. These are Pearl-bordered Fritillaries Boloria euphrosyne. I suspect that this may be a translation error?
Regards, Nigel.

hello Ton
wonderful composition and photo

Very unbelievable image, too many but very well done with good depth and background. tfs.

Piękne zdjęcie! Trzy motyle uchwycone w ruchu, a przy tym ostre jak żyleta;)))Wszystko jest najlepszej jakości: POV, kolory ( widać, że robione przed zachodem słońca), tło i DOF.
