The day was very windy, and I spent about 45 minutes and about 600 shots in high burst mode with different parameters in the hope of getting some nice sharp images... Less than ten was good enough to continue processing. This is the one of them... the male of eastern festoon butterfly (Zerynthia cerisy)... a blue area with the butterfly is a petal of a large clematis flower...

Thank you all for your comments... I usually avoid taking photos in windy weather, because the success in these conditions is weak... Nevertheless, I was persistent here, because this kind of butterfly is relatively rare, lives for a short time during a year, in a narrow territory and an opportunity such this should not be missed... a few years ago I managed to photograph these butterfly with its wings spread - viewtopic.php?f=5&t=283863
