Bonjour Luciano,

Les feuilles cadrent bien l'insecte. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails du papillon Azuré du trèfle. La lumière fait ressortir les couleurs. Bonne journée.

Extra ordinary colour that is very rare, well composed and place at the perfect corner, well shot.

Hi Luciano,
Probably the camera angle isn't the best, but the composition and the rainbow colors are very spectacular. Nice exposure as well, maybe the background's a little too noisy, otherwise a good shot.
Kind regards from Ireland, László

What a beautiful top-model all about it is excellent well done LUCIANO GOLLINI

Ciao Luciano, uno spettacolo ad ali aperte, questi licenidi raramente si fanno riprendere così, favolosi i riflessi violacei, qualità più che buona, bravissimo, ciao Silvio
