Esta imagen fue capturada en la base del Montseny, en un prado al que suelo ir a 700 metros de altura.
Gracias a vuestras colaboraciones la clasifico como Lycaena phlaeas (family: Lycaenidae).
Voy cogiendo poco a poco la filosofia de la web.
Quiero mejorar. Las críticas son bienvenidas :-)

Hello Ric,
this is an excellent first picture of this Lycaena phlaeas (family: Lycaenidae) and I hope it will not the last one from you.
Well selected point of view and beautiful capture of the light.
Sharpness is also pretty good. General composition and background design are attractive.
Welcome at TN and best wishes, Peter

Welcome to TN and thanks for making your first post a Lycaenid butterfly. The picture is very well composed and the back-lighting makes the colours muted and attractive. You have achieved good detail and sharpness where it matters most. Thanks
