Brown argus (male)
The male of Brown argus is more beautiful like the female....and I am not misogynist.
Great and beautiful capture.

A superb macro of a A. agestis.
The colours and sharpness are top class and I like th composition on the Cistus flower to make this a superb portrait of this attractive Lycaenid.
Thanks and have a good weekend,

Interesante tratamiento de la luz y saturación de los colres a costa de desvirtuar ligeramente la realidad, pero con un efecto sorprendente. Muy buen encuadre.
Saludos Catherine: Josep Ignasi.

Wonderful this lovely butterfly!
Colors and details are fantastic.
Flower is lovely too!
A lovely composition of colors and crisp details make this an outstanding capture. Well done, Catherine!
BTW, have your travel thru the Greek Islands taken you to Rhodes? I could use some orchid tips, if you have them.
Have a nice weekend,

What a colourful and nice picture of a lovely butterfly on a fine flower. Details of the main subject are simply great and nicely colored and smoothed BG is a fine addition to it. My compliments and best wishes.
P.S. I am a bit late because I had not any green smile in the morning.
it's with much pleasure I se this Plebeius. Sophisticated: the light on the animal is in part reflected from the flower. And it is a wild flower, not a garden variety. Taken all together with the technical mastery it makes for a highly successful portrait.
I learned that you will be in Turkey soon and meet Bayram there. Catherine, have a good time and many pleasant encounters there. I will be in Izmir too but only for the night of April 2, then I will bicycle towards the East.
Have fun and take care,

Une image charmante et fine du Collier-de-corail (quel joli nom!). Le jeu de couleurs est superbe, le rose de la fleur de ciste et les couleurs terre se marient si bien. Belle présentation décentrée aussi.
Bonnes vacances aussi!
