I like this particular photo of male Adonis Blue (Lysandra bellargus) for the striking contrast in colours. Handheld in sunlight with shutter priority at 1/250th.

Hello Alan:

Beautiful capture of the Adonis Blue. The blue on a rusty bokeh is striking to say the least. Choice POV & fantastic light on this pleasing composition!



  • Great
