Hi John,very nice idea this collage whit the typical springtime butterflies and flowers,i can see a nice Anthocaris too,the queen of this month,very good details and colors everywhere!Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano
Are you sure this is Primula auricula? As far as I know Primula auricula is yellow. Note that cultivars created by humans are not allowed on TN. Besides looking at the shape I really doubt this is a Primula auricula variety.
Hi John an intresting set of spring woodland inhabitants.
1st to identification
1) is a Hybrid form of Primula vulgaris (primrose) yes I know it is not all Yellow but Primula's hybridise very easliy with other members of the family with the help of the local bees, I am forever weeding out the multicoloured one that grow up in my native woodland garden.
2) The Puple flower is an early purple orchid Orchis maculata
3) the Myosttis is nicely framed but the flowers seem to be in front of the focus point. I sugest the use of single point focus to allow you lock your focus on the front of the flower instead of the leaves behind
4)the Orange tip male is very nicely caught with it seeming to be well in focus and a good seperation with it and the well out of focus background, the best photo of the set, maybe a touch of burn tool of hightlight reduction on the white to tone them back a just a little.
5) the Lycaena helle , not a species I am familiar with the butterfly its self not quiet sharp and the flower is completly over exposed, did you use flash to expose this image? , if so next time reduce the power of the flask or expose image for the flower then use shodow and highlight type tool to bring the exposure up on the butterfly.
Thank you for sharring yours Robert
