[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It is one of the most common butterflies in Europe. The males are a striking bluish-violet colour, but females are brown with orange spots near the margins of the wings. In both sexes, the undersides of the wings are greyish brown with blackish spots and orange crescents towards the margins of the wings . The caterpillar has a stout body, which tapers towards the tips. The head is black and the body is green. A darker green line bordered with white passes along the centre of the back. There is also a whitish-green line along the sides . This part is from http://www.arkive.org/

I like this one a lot because the good capture and the fantastic colours. I hope you like it too.

Hi Jaap,

This is a very good capture. Excellent sharpness and colour. I have never seen a butterfly with such beautiful color before and it seems to have fur around its body and wings. Thanks for sharing. Regards,

Very kind of the butterfly to sit still and pose for you! Shot well done, striking photo!
Any info on how you took it?

Sorry, points are up...

Je retrouve ici aussi la finesse du travail, grande netteté.
Beau papillon

what a beautiful butterly! it is very interesting to know that this species is a common one in Europe. Good job, that's a beautiful composition.

Mooie foto Jaap. Ik hou van foto's met weinig kleuren. Dat spreekt veel meer. Toppie!

Bonsoir Jaap,
Toutes ailes sorties, ce papillon est particulièrement photogénique et je félicite le photographe pour cette superbe réalisation (je connais les difficultés pour obtenir un pareil résultat).
Bravo !
