A large butterfly with a wingspan of 50-60 mm. The upperside ground colour is black-brown. The forewing has white apical marks and a wide red-orange band from the inner margin to the costa. On the hindwing there is a red-orange marginal band that contains four black marks and two mauve marks at the hind angle. The underside ground colour is also dark brown. On the forewing the red band and white apical marks are present with additional dispersed blue, yellow and brown markings that form a complicated, characteristic pattern. The female is similar to the male.

This species has a very wide range, occurring in Europe, North Africa, the Middle East, western Asia, North America and New Zealand, and known as migratory species.

Kind regards

Hi Bayram. A nice dedication to Gert i am sure he will like it. This is a fine close up of the butterfliy on the flower. You have taken it with good detail and natural colours. I like the way the light is refecting on the leaves, well done TFs.

Have a good weekend.

hi Bayram,
what a beautiful picture my friend, great colours and composition, very clear image and interesting explanation, bravo
kind regards

Hi Bayram
I think that I like this one the most from all your atalanta serie. Nice light, good OOF background and good diagonal compo
Best wishes

Hello Bayram,
sorry I'm a bit late, have been away.
Thanks for this fine dedication and butterfly picture, it's nice to have one, since we still have a lot of snow a no sign of butterflies so far and it's also a early birthday present for my 60 yo b-day tomorrow;-)
Well composed with fins sharpness with good details and nice natural colours.
Well done.

Hello Bayram,
In the previous critiques, under some of Your bird shots I spoke about soft focus. I clicked this image to compare - and yes, I think I was right when mentioning ISO 200 as the reason, which was perfect here, but too much there (100 would have been enough for those scenes if You ask me). I also gladly see there's nothing wrong with my eyes and glasses, because the focus is absolutely excellent here, which causes crystal clear sharpness. Composition's great, too, nice angle of the b-fly, wonderfully blurred bg, and the color contrast between the white flowers and the darker parts (insect, leaves, branch) is simply awesome. Clever use of available light also.
Dear Professor, I have to say from Your newer Red Admiral series this is the pic I like the most, brilliant capture. I bookmark it as a favorite photo.
Tfs, have a nice day, László

Farklı bir bakış açısı ve etkileyici bir makro hocam.
Elinize sağlık.

Bonjour Bayram
C'est un très joli papillon, avec de belles couleurs et de jolis motifs. Les détails sont excellents, tout comme la composition, le point de vue et la profondeur. Joli contraste également entre le papillon et l'arrière-plan.
Passe un bon week end...JP!

Merhaba MF Prof. Bayram,
nothing have ever surprised me ever today.
To me it is such a big loss, those lizards, those snakes, those informative notes.
Im hoping and wishing things will get better.
May this beautiful capture - well positioned butterfly, pretty flowers ad glowing leaves give an outstanding presentation- brings us beautiful living like the shot itself.
My best regards ever and my hope is that please keep on posting.


Hello Bayram! Amazing picture. Amazing macro. One question: where are Your another pictures? Well done!

Selamlar sayın hocam çok güzel bir tür ve harika bir çalışma olmuş.

Bonsoir Bayram,

Jolie image printanière!
La diagonale de cette branche fleurie, offre un tendre flirt entre la fleur et ce butterfly.
Les couleurs sont douces et lumineuses.
c'est une capture extra, agréable à regarder.
Merci. Amicalement. Yolande

Merhaba Bayram.

Atalanta gerçekten çok güzel bir kelebektir ama sadece kanatları açık olarak bakılırsa :) Kanat altı çok sıradan ve çekici gelmiyor bana. Ama kanat içleri muhteşem. Öbür taraftan bu kelebekleri doğru ışık değerleri ile pozlamak da az iş kesinlikle değil. Bulundukları ortam genelde aydınlık ve açık alan. Hayvancığın renkleri ise koyu. Her iki bölgeden aşırı kontrastlık nedeni ile aynı anda aynı detayı almak gerçekten kolay iş değil. Ama görünen o ki sen bu işi gayet güzel kotarmışsın.

Giriş sayfana yazmış olduğun yazıyı okudum. Çok haklısın. Bana göre burası fotoğraf sanatı yardımı ile doğayı tanıma ve tanıtma alanı. Zaten sitenin girişinde de bu yazıyor mealen. Yayınlanan fotoğraflarda öncelikle biraz iyi fotoğraf kaygısı taşımalı, sonra da altında mutlaka açıklayıcı bilgi olmalı diye düşünüyorum. Zaten farkındasındır ya da tüm beni izlayenler farkındadır, çektiğim her fotoğrafı değil bana göre en az kusuru olan fotoğrafı burada paylaşıyorum. Paylaştığım her fotoğrafın altına da bilebildiğim, bulabildiğim bilgileri mutlaka yazıyorum, copy-paste yapmadan. Bazan bu konuda ingilizcem yeterli olmadığı için zorlansam da (önceleri oğlumdan yardım alıyordum, şimdi o da üniveersite tahsili için İstanbul'da) yine de elimden geldiğince boş bırakmıyorum altını.
Elbette herkes bizim ghibi düşünmeyebilir. Ana sayfada yüklenen fotoğraflara baktığımda kimisi fotoğraf kalitesi bakımından, kimisi ise sitenin amacına aykırı olarak -fotoğraf teknik bakımdan çok üstün olsa da- not içermediğinden yorum almayı hak etmiyor. Ama ben elimden geldiğince dikkatimi çeken olursa boş geçmemeye çalışıyorum.
Tabişi hepsinden önemlisi vakit. Her zaman uygun vakti bulmak işte asıl mesele burada :)

Selam ve sevgiler.

Hellow Bayram,
Paging through your archives I found this impressive and beautifully coloured image of this butterfly.Interesting perspective with pinsharpness showing such amazing details inside the flowers as well as the butterflies intricate details.

Selam my dear friend,
A nice capture of this beautiful red admiral butterfly. Very well composed shot with a nice and unique POV. Very good details. Thanks a lot for sharing. Have a nice weekend.

Hello my friend Bayram. This was your first posting after you have removed your previous pictures. The image is beautiful and you have captured it well under fine lighting and artistic point of view. I really hope to see more pictures from you in 2011. Have a joyful holiday season and thanks for sharing.
Kind regards - Jusni
