My eyes scroll up and down, left and right and found the antenna well focused as the both wings top side are bit soft but the bottoms are well sharp, composition is excellent also the colors are very attractive and bright.
Well shot and TFS.

Hello Luciano,
As usual tack sharp picture of Butterfly. Very well captured with excellent sharp details and colors. Like your chosen POV too.
Nice to see this Short tailed Blue species which you mentioned smallest in your village,
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice weekend,

Hi Luciano,
The upper left wing isn't as sharp as it used to be, probably you used too wide aperture - otherwise a fantastic image. Composition, lights and colours are all very nice.
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Bonjour Luciano,

L'insecte est bien placé dans le cadrage. la prise de vue permet de voir les détails du papillon Azuré du trèfle. La lumière rehausse la beauté des couleurs. Bonne journée.


Another technical-work from your gallery...all compo details and the rest of it just excellent BRAVO LUCIANO GOLLINI
