Photographers Comment

First of all many thanks to the jury for this mark. My name is Volker Nagel. End of september I was looking for mantis religiosa in a biotope in the Palatinate Forest but it already seemed to be too cold. To my great joy I saw some butterflies of the Lycaenidae family in a very warm sunset. I could make a few photos with my 5D Mark 3 and a 100 mm macro at 2,8 aperture and 1/250 sec. It is slightly croped. Apart from that I only made the usual modifications in Lightroom.
