The story behind the shot
The pearl-bordered fritillary requires small warm spots in the forest without too much foliage. These places have vanished and the butterfly was on the path to extinction. I wanted to see and photograph this butterfly before it went extinct in Denmark. I found a beautiful individual on the edge of a large empty space in the middle of the forest. The population seems like it has since stabilized but it is still very fragile.
Each print is printed on Giclée Hahnemühle Pearl which is a beautiful and glossy paper. This paper is my personal favorite for fine art printing. Each print comes with a 1 cm border for easier mounting.
This print is a limited edition print limited to only 30 prints. After edition 30, I will not be printing this piece again. The print comes with a Certificate of Authenticity that features a special hologram sticker system.
Frame is not included.
