Let me jump in to complement on these beautiful pictures. Eight years of butterfly hunts in the Alps only gave me a single maturna - fantastic creature.

I made a mistake - I saw intermedia, instead of maturna. Also cynthia, just once, which beats all imho.

Agreed. But nice shot, anyhow - More please!

Wow! Lovely indeed, and that applies to both the creature as well as the photo.

I am very jealous about your butterflypictures. How much do you work on the pictures, after you shot them. I also want to try to get pictures like this. :)
