|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
The Painted lady (V. cardui) is a large butterfly (wing span 5–9 cm (2.0–3.5 in)) identified by the black and white corners of its mainly deep orange, black-spotted wings. It has five white spots in the black forewing tips and while the orange areas may be pale here and there, there are no clean white dots in them. The hindwings carry four small submarginal eyespots on dorsal and ventral sides. Those on the dorsal side are black, but in the summer morph sometimes small blue pupils are present in some.

Hi Marius,beautiful capture of this fresh Cardui of new generation,very common in my country too but still one of the most amazing butterfly talking about design and colors,i like it! Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano
Nikon 105mm is really a good lens for such macro photography. Details are excellent! (Smile) Don't think I'm putting all credits on lend! The way you managed light and BG is really eye catching. Like your chosen composition too. Very neat and clean photography.
Thanks and best regards,
