Ciao Silvietto,un po' piu' giovane della mia senza dubbio,alta qualita' e perfetta posizione della ali..e non era facile conoscendo la maledetta che le sbatte in continuazione..ehehe..complimenti per l'Inter e buon Martedi',Luciano

The dark background makes the colours of this butterfly glow very nicely. Good details. regards yiannis

Ciao Silvio. La bella per te si è bloccata e concessa... neanche le ali sbatteva più... Scusami ma vado di fretta.

Bonjour Silvio,
Un papillon que les membres de TN italiens ont montré dernièrement. Ton spécimen a une coloration légèrement différente. Belle photo avec l'arrière-plan sombre faisant contraste. Une très belle région d'Italie la Basilicata où j'ai passé des vacances il y a quelques années sur les traces de Carlo Levi.
Bon après-midi
Amitiés
Anne
