A Knapweed Fritillary butterfly settling down for the night, backlit by the setting sun...
Getting this close and face to face, was truly exhilarating!
Do you like butterflies and dragonflies? Take a little tour if you like HERE
again, a good one
Absolutely spot on. Steve
Still like it Tim ;0)
cracking capture, those wings are like a stained glass window
This is a beautiful piece of photography. Really excellent work.
Wow, this is beautiful, love the angle from underneath. the backlighting is great, deserves a lot of attention.
breath taking.. stunning detail and back lighting.. awesome and inspiring !!!!
Well exposed, like the backlighting, good composition and detail.
superb capture with wonderful light
Beautifully backlit Tim,very good colours & so well exposed.
Don't know how I missed this wonderful shot, great detail and I love the natural backlighting
A different angle, but really works well. Love the curve of the flower stem coming in from the right.
Another of those species we don't get here Grrr!
So glad to be the 30th voter on this amazing image. The backlighting has brought out all the colours, and the stem coming from the fg is so unusual.
This is a good one. Where did you take the photo?
Thanks for all your kind support on this one. It took a while to get noticed, there's something about dark images on this website, people rarely notice them.
It's funny technically this one is ten times more difficult than the previous dragonfly I uploaded, but not quite so popular!
This was taken close to the ground with the sun in my eyes, lying on my back and feet pointed away from the subject, effectively I took this upside down in the most awkward position!
Great position to be in taking a picture. Why should the camera do all the work? Hope you got bitten by ants and ... yeah ok I'm jealous.It's a terrific shot adn again you have achieved some lovely and different lighting to many standard macro shots so you get 5 * for effort, ingenuity, inspiration, handling the camera and being there...
Superb. Well worth the effort. JNC
Beautifully lit and great clarity. Isn't nature wonderful - thank you ! Mandi
Marvellous light through the wings, beautiful exposure. First class, well done.
