Hi Thodoris,

A busy flower you have spotted,very nice shot with good colors and details,well done and TFS,


I decided: The bugs certainly love the thistle. When I saw a flower of thsitle they are lots of bugs on it.
And congratulations, for this cature. Very well timing, nice colours, excellent details, POV and BG are nice too. Bravo.

Hi Thodoris,
Nice captured. Good pov and composition. This is happy time with flowers are blooming and insects are mating. Very well done.

Great capture Thodoris!
4 at the same time! Lucky one!
Very good POV and colours!
A bit soft on focus, but many at the same time.

Hi Thodoris,

Very good capture Thodoris,
The details are nice, clear and sharp.
Good colours, lighting and exposure. DOF is spot on and the POV is good.
Well composed and nicely framed.
Thanks for posting, have a great week

Hello Thodoris,
you have captured a nice bunch of Burnets of two different species on one blossom with good colours and details, telling a story vibrant with life!
The mating couple belongs to the Five-Spot Burnets (possibly "Zygaena trifolii"), the transparent one in the lower right corner may be either "Zygaena erythrus" or "Zygaena purpuralis". All of them are much rarer than the Six-Spotted Burnet Z. filipendulae.
To have a closer look into the great variety of European Burnets, please have a look into: www.leps.it
Thank you, and have a good time in the mountains of Greece!
Best regards,
