Hello Luciano,
This surely is a beautiful blue butterfly. Impressive sharply detailed in splendid bright colours, nicely contrasting against the background.

Ciao Luciano, favolosa vecchietta, il nome l'hanno scelto bene, che nonostante sia in età da pensione il blu è proprio brillante, macro al solito di gran qualità, bravissimo, ciao Silvio

Bonjour Luciano,
Tu as raison, ce bleu roi est absolument magnifique. Le papillon a déjà vécu d'après ton image, mais il reste toujours beau avec cette coloration unique.
Bonne fin de semaine

Very beautiful indeed, even in its less than perfect condition.

Have a pleasant weekend, Luciano,


Hi Luciano, What a beautiful blue butterfly with nice patterns which one could see their shines under the perfect light management.
The left wing is damaged and I hope it will not affect its flight. Great sharpness with details like always. Wonderful colour contrasts. Thank for sharing

Hello Luciano,
The blue color in it's wings seems to glow. It may be a bit torn, but it is still very eye catching. Wonderful sharp detail and just the right exposure. Great at work!!

Lovely shot,
Superb colour and sharpness.

Despite the specimen being a bit worn out, the butterfly still looks beautiful with those blue wings, Luciano. The sandy ground turns out to be a good backdrop for this capture.

Ciao Luciano,
in your previous presentation you have triggered our curiosity, and now we can see what was almost completely hidden before: an amazingly flashy beauty of blue iridescence. Perfect timing of presentation! Thank you! With best regadrs,
