The Common Blue Butterflies have once again returned to the meadows surrounding Würzburg,

Here are the results of my first outing photographing them this season .

    Fabulous close-ups, Dave! I especially love their clarity and the soft, natural colors!

    A series of beauty. Butterflies of course, but the rendering pastel colors add a real plus in the compositions. Superb…
