Ciao Roby,perche' a me non capitano mai certe fortune? Ci fosse una volta che una specie nuova sbagli strada e si diriga dalle mie parti....ehehe.....un gran colpo di fortuna sfruttato alla grande,pazzeschi i dettagli e bellissimi i colori,semplicemente meravigliosa.Buona serata,Luciano

Ciao Roberto, cosė bella che quasi quasi me ne innamoro, macro perfetta di una deliziosa farfallina, bravissimo, ciao Silvio

A technically superior capture of this charming species of Blues, Roberto.
The composition with the butterfly sticking to a green plant is a visual delight.
Thanks and regards.
