Sorry I didn't mean to point that at you but those who do it. The ones who treat this site more like there artistic photo gallery than its true purpose, data gathering.

@Jellis Thanks. But to make this clear. I did not enhance it to impress but more because I was frustrated that the picture did not reflect the color as i saw it. And I think I went too far.

Thank you for changing it. Wild things should be shown in their natural colors and not be inhanced just to impress. They all look good just as they are.

Thank you Alice! I felt so bad by putting you all on the wrong foot...
But your right if you look at that little patch of sun on his left wing you will see it was actually really red. I have off course googled it and only saw brown versions also. So I guess I am lucky!

All the photos and descriptions of this butterfly that I've seen are still much browner than this, so this must be an exception, in that case great spotting!

OK All
My sincere apologies I might have led you all astray!:-(
I had boosted the colors maybe a bit too far. I have now deleted my first picture and replaced it with a non boosted image. The only thing I have done with this picture is cropped it and sharpened it a tiny bit. It is in the shade now so you do see it really was VERY red. I hope you still appreciate the beauty of it!

Nice, you must have good lighting cause all the images I see on the internet aren't as red as this.
