[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The species (Vanessa Cardui, Painted Lady, Cosmopolitan) is widespread in our region and I like to picture it so much. Especially I like to shoot them using long telelens or macro lens. I can to watch and capture butterflies from far distance freely not disturbing them at all.

Shared shot is taken last autumn in my garden when this cute specimen regaled on nectar and pollen of the last flowers.

By this shot I finish my 7th year in lovely TN-community and promise to put all forces to become more active TN-member.

Hello Alexei,
Seven years on TN, congratulations. That's for me still a half year to go.
Very beautiful macro of this butterfly in a splendid environment. Sharpness and details are top and the colours are very nice. Excellent DOF.

A spectacular macro Alexei!
The variation of colours are striking and beautifully portrayed. I just love the golden sunlight in the image as it brings out the colours in the whole image to the best. The details of the butterfly's antennas and furry body is brilliantly captured. Your work is excellent. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
