Hi Szabo,
A lovely capture of this beautiful Dryad butterfly. A new one for me. Very well composed shot with sharp details. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hi Szabo,a again,

I just saw my first Minois dryas in my life, three weeks ago. At that time I did'nt even know that such butterflies with blue eyes existed. Unfortunately my individual was all damaged. Your picture brings the memory back, thanks for that.

Best regards
