Around of mine country houses I usually see such scenes: butterflies on a dry grass. May be such scene are less pictorial than they are more natural. Amazing colour palette of the butterfly and reflection of ll its cute details. Interesting combination of lights and shadow and as always, complete and full of content note. I am glad to see you and your nice picture again and again. Best regards and TFS.

Excellent detailed butterfly!
You catched the nice iridiscent reflections on their wings so good with the appropiated POV and light incidence.
The almost dry background shows the surroundings where it was found.
Beautiful the mountains view showed in the workshop.
Congratulations and thanks for share.

You've caught the 'brassy' sheen of colour very well in this shot. This is another Erebia species new to me, the relevant irridescent side being sharp and the whole presentation well composed.
Thanks for another interesting portrayal in your series.
Best wishes, Ivan

A very well researched note along with this rare species of butterflies makes your image immensely valuable, Peter.
The metallic iridescence on the wing is well captured on part of the wing in sharp focus.
The BG does not distract me from the compulsive appeal in the presentation of the subject.

Hi Peter, the irridescent colours are shining so prettily on the wings. The plain brown butterfly becomes a thing of beauty with teh light shining on it. Well captured, thank you

Obwohl dieser Mohrenfalter in seiner Englischen Bezeichnung Swiss heisst, habe ich diesen noch nie" bewusst" gesehen. Erstaunlich wie die Flügel metallisch scheinen, je nach Lichteinfall. Hochinteressant auch Deine Notiz. Herzlichen Dank auch für Deine Hilfe bei meinem weissen Nachbarn.

Great demostration of iridescence in this butterfly. This physical phenomenon always fascinate me as any other light property. Excellent angle to see both iridescence and normal appearance.
Best regards, José M.

Another splendid butterfly capture from you, my friend!
I really like this one very much (maybe a little more than the past few) because of this sublime metallic iridescence on its wings beautifully shown here!
The POV is excellent for it and the colors and light are just great!
Also teh habitat is just magnificent and it could easily be a wonderful landscape post :)
Cheers and TFS

Subject: very interesting endemic species
Focus: the DOF could be a bit deeper but still very good
Light: nice & natural
Color: I like this brassy effect on the wing
Tecnical comments: the grass in the fornt is a bit distracting but it's just a minor comment
Best greetings and TFS!

super hast du diesen Falter erwischt, es sieht aus als sei er soeben in meinen Monitor geflattert. Der eine Fluegel strahlt wie ein Regenbogen in allen Farben. Perspektive, Schaerfe und Bildgestaltung sind super.
