Workshop Note
Boloria pales (Denis & Schiffermüller 1775)
Shepherd's Fritillary.

To be met in the European Alps above the range of forests in summer at elevations beween 2200 and 2700m, this quick moving little fritillary loves to sit on rocks or a flower to spread its wings to the sun.

Taken at an elevation of approximately 2400 meters near Lucknerhuette on the slopes of Grossglockner, Kals, Tyrol.

Camera: SONY DSC-H5, 3072 x 2304 pixel, sRGB, 16mm macro (= 96mm at 35mm SLR), F/4, 1/800sec., ISO-125; no tripod, no flash; 23.08.2006, 11:32.

Postwork: Photoshop Elements, cropped, downsized to web presentation, selectively sharpened, brightness, contrast and saturation adjusted.

Hope you enjoy.
