Hello Luciano,
Beautiful photo of this moth. Congratulations on this novelty for TN. Excellent sharpness, details and DOF. Very nice natural colours.
Regards,
Peter

Come tutti i Pyrgus fa di tutto per rendere la vita difficile eh! Altro scatto che "un comune mortale" non si sognerebbe di tentare. Te lo dico senza presunzione ma con la giusta autostima - mi conosci-: vedi che significa far parte di una elite.....?

Roberto

Ciao Luciano,
ottima macro di questo Pyrgus, molto simile ai nostri, ma con colori più marcati, straordinaria la nitidezza, ottimo anche il punto di ripresa con cui hai creato un piacevole effetto tridimensionale e una composizione ben bilanciata
Grazie e complimenti
Buona notte
Maurizio

Beautiful Photo Luciano. The composition is excellent, the colours are wonderful and the sharpness is great.

Christodoulos

Superb photograph with great clarity and detail. regards Yiannis

Hello Luciano,

Delicate details have been recorded in the butterfly, where in particular I notice the big black eyes!
An effective eye level point of view, and the focus is perfect with a sharp subject and a blurry back...
Pin sharp details and fine texture in the wings!

Greetings,
Pablo -

Ciao Luciano, altra bella cattura antilliana, ottima la luce ed i dettagli. Un saluto, Paolo

Hi Luciano

Well done on capturing this species for us to admire. Skippers are notoriously hard to shoot. Good composition and sharpness.

Hi Lousat - Macro is great. Fantastic Sharpness and composition. TFS

Ciao Luciano, non è certo spettacolare come altre farfalle ma è una deliziosa Pyrgus di una specie mai vista, gran bella macro che ci fa ammirare ambo le facce delle ali di questa deliziosa novità, POV difficile interpretato da un grande Maestro, bravissimo, anche ad averne trovato il nome, complimentoni, ciao Silvio

Hello Luciano,
Unbelievably sharp and just beautiful. The colours, patterns, texture and forground all form a fabulous image against the OOF background.

Bonjour Luciano,
Intéressant de voir un Pyrgus provenant de l'autre côté de l'océan. En plus tu nous le présentes de manière latérale avec une certaine ouverture des ailes, ce qui nous permet de voir aussi un peu du dessus des ailes. Très bonne netteté aussi.
Un grand merci, aussi pour avoir cherché l'ID.
Bonne fin de semaine
Amitiés
Anne

Bonjour Luciano,

Les feuilles cadrent bien le papillon. La prise de vue permet de distinguer les détails et les couleurs du papillon Pyrgus adepta. La lumière de l'après-midi rehausse les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.
