Hello Luciano,
Wonderful macro of this butterfly. Even in this damaged condition it's very nice to look at. Superb sharpness, details, POV and DOF. Very beautiful natural colours.

Hi Luciano,
really interesting photo of this butterfly. Excellent depth of field. Nice composition and presentation.
Have a nice evening,

Hello Luciano,

Hope you are well. Excellent shot of this lovely Brilliant Blue butterfly even the grains of sands appear so colourful. I'll call it immaculate focus. Listen, you are still using the younger brother of my Sony DSC HX300.....hey, we are a family now....wink....and a....smile.
Wonderful shot from a distance I hope, lovely brown colours overall, thanks a lot for sharing, bro...take care..

Ciao Luciano, bentornato, io nella pioggia e tu alle isole Mauritius, mi pare giusto così...., gran bella un po' vecchietta, ma mai vista prima, macro al solito di gran qualità con ottima nitidezza e splendidi dettagli, bravissimo, ciao Silvio

hallo Luciano

thanks greeting lou

Coetanea di qualcuno ...di nostra conoscenza....ahahah!! Profondità da paura super dettaglio.


Ha ha ha! You're a real adventurer, Luciano!
What are you doing or have been doing in the Indian Ocean, on the island of Mauritius?
What envy! I hope that any comments or if you please, in a email, tell me of this great African journey. Do not forget!

Gorgeous photograph of this Junonia rhadama. It is an image with suspense, showing us her beautiful but camuflables browns the bottom of the wings. Now all hope to meet with her stunning blue ...

Congratulations, brother.

A big hug from Argentina

Hello Luciano,
The wings may be a little tattered and torn, but this is still a fine closed winged image of this pretty little Brilliant Blue. It's funny how some butterflies wings are completely different in color when closed as compared to open. Great shot!!

Hi Luciano,
Wonderful macro of this butterfly.

Bonjour Luciano,
Heureuse de revoir une de tes photos. Le site menaçait en effet de tomber en hibernation! Tu as été sur l'Ile Maurice, une île qui fait rêver beaucoup de monde et je suis sûre que tu y as vu de nombreuses créatures intéressantes comme ce papillon dont on aimerait bien voir le dessus des ailes. Très joli aussi le nom de l'endroit, Flic en Flac:-)
Bonne journée. Amitiés.

Hello Luciano

Great macro of this butterfly posed at ground, very fine POV at its level,
great DOF, lovely light, great focus, sharpness, and details, TFS


Hello Luciano
Interesting species and beautiful photo with nice lighting and very good sharpness!

Wonderful image.......

Beautiful patterns and lights has been captured by great details and also what a lovely and warm colours well done LUCIANO GOLLINI

Ciao Luciano,
precisely detailed presentation, perfectly well approached from a very low point of view. The damaged hind wing gives a good idea of the flashy beauty in flight that normally would be well hidden at rest.
Thank you! With best regadrs,

Hello Luciano
Lovely closeup with great detail and colour.
This is really a nice picture of Brilliant Blue.
Best wishes.
