Red Admiral

This year this butterfly species was not so much present as usual in autumn. Normally they were around in great number, not this season. May be the cold weather we actually have is the reason for it. But I haven't seen other specimen either here on TN lately.
I just saw a few Red Admirals around our house. The same for Vanessa cardui which was almost totally absent.
A picture which I wanted intentionally to look rather like a painting, just to change a little bit.

Hi Anne.
Splendid shot. I have few shots of this species but any from them was not shared here. I like that you have done it. Amazing surroundings created by wonderful flowers and right level of blurriness. Details of the fine individual of the species are ultimate too. A bit back POV is also superb. Well done and TFS.

Bonjour Anne,
Une belle image que tu as réalisée.
Je ne dirai qu'une seule chose :
" A conserver dans mes favoris ", si tu le permet bien sur ???

Hi Anne,

Fantastic picture of this admiral with good details & colors.
Taken from a nice POV. The blurred flower in the BG looks awesome.
Today this picture inspired me to post the butterfly picture, else i was thinking to post another caterpillar.
Well done & TFS.

Hallo Anne,
wie ich sehe haben wir uns heute um die gleiche Schmetterlingsart bemüht. Nur ist dir dieser schöne Schmetterling sogar noch 2 Tage später begegnet, als der von meinem Posting. Mir gefällt hier vor allem die sehr schöne Bildkomposition und die satten Farben.
Viele Grüße,

Ciao Anne.
Questa sera stupende foto sù T.N.Di cui la tua una composizione magnifica e dei colori stupendi ottima la nitidezza complimenti.
Ciao Marco.

Salut Anne,quelle elegance cette photo et quelle magnifique capture des details de l'aile,il faut travailler tres bien avec la lumiere pour un resultat si parfait! Mes compliments et belle journee',Luciano

Fantastic macro Anne!! Excellent composition, beautiful BG, wonderful colours and impressive sharpness! This butterfly is completely absent from Cyprus during the hot summer months. After the first rains in autumn it arrives in large numbers from the north. Recorded throughout the winter months and observed ovipositing in all months from November until May manly on Urtica urens witch is very common in the gardens during the winter. I believe that this butterfly migrates every spring from the south to the north and every autumn from the north to the south following the suitable conditions for reproduction producing overlapping generations.


Hi Anne,
WOW!!!!! What can I compliment you with that this exposure does not!! Excellent object focus with stunning colour variation/detail enhanced with an absolute splendid BG! Great work, better than a painting by far.

Ciao Anne,
una fantastica macro dai colori "abbaglianti", straordinaria nitidezza, bellissimo l'impatto visivo
Grazie e complimenti
Ciao Maurizio
