A splendid shot of this beautiful butterfly, the iridescence of it wings really stands out, due to excellent focus. The colours a real vibrant. Taken from a nice POV against a good oof background. The lighting in this shot really shows well.

Those withered reddish brown flowers add some nice color to compliment the blue, I like it. Good diagonal aspect and framing too.
Great details where it counts, and use of the natural light..
Thank you for the info on that Polyphemus moth BTW :)

This male is just glowing in the bright sunshine, Ivan.
Super sharpness and DOF at your camera settings.
I can imagine how satisfying it must be to capture this rare species in this kind of ideal surroundings.
Thanks and regards.

Hello Ivan friend,
Undoubtedly, you're one of the top with the 300mm + 1.4 converter! ... this is a first-line macro, with very good quality optics! ... Additionally, you select a POV beautifully and this butterfly help whit half open wings and displaying a blue dream! Bravo!
TFS, Regards, Jesús

I really don't know where to start in your portfolio of photographs Ivan, so I have begun here, although I have added an earlier photo to my favourites. I just don't know how to compliment you on your photography. As a true nature lover, I know where to look, but I have not mastered the technique of how to look, and I certainly do not have the capabilities or the equipment to show what I see. It is evident that you have all these attributes.
You have all the techniques that admire, and I hope to learn from viewing photos such as this!

Not only is this a beautiful Blue butterfly but capturing it in this lovely dancing position is fantastic. The wings and head are magnificent with excellent colors, details and textures. The plant it is posing on is very interesting as well. I'm so glad you posted the workshop so we could see the wonderful patterns.
Merhaba Dostum Ivan,
After a long trip including the Middle East i could find a pretext to visit TN and your posts now! This is an impressive macro capture of this pretty b-fly from an unusual POV with excellent clarity and details.
TFS and have a nice day MF!

this butterfy are not to find in the BENELUX, Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg.
Good pov and blurred bg.
These blue ones are also difficult to identify, give me flowers.
Exellent details and fine colours.

Another beautifull Lyceanid from your collection. This one has got exceptional colours of wings. Very nice POV with good sharpness on eyes and wings. Composition with flower is good. Interesting and educative picture in workshop - blues are very hard to ID for me.

beautiful image, the blue color of the wings is fantastic and so shiny, like silk,
the details are very sharp and the POV is nice
i like also the plant or dried flower, it looks like a firework
yesterday, the 14th july, we had the national holiday in France, and we had a firework in each village and town
Have a good night

Hola Sr. Ivan.
Sin duda que los colres azul turquesa de esta especie son toda yna belleza para la vista. Se logra aqui captar en la foto finos y elegentes detalles en su cuerpo. La florecilla donde se posa es tambien muy bella.
Saludos Don Ivan.

Une image très belle de Polyommatus dorylas, une espèce que je n'ai encore jamais vue. La netteté est impeccable, la luminosité excellente. Une image naturelle aussi. J'aime bien le fait que le papillon soit posé sur Anthyllis vulneraria, une plante qui me plaît tant. L'image du WS est très belle aussi.
Bon dimanche à vous deux

beautiful blue in special shine of silvery kind. New to me and the sharpness is splendid.
The flower look like a palm holding the butterfly intact.
nicely portrayed with neat shot of no disruption except flower and butterfly.

What a wonderful shot! Clear, fantastic and the details are amazing! The butterfly looks like as it made from steel. The blue metallic colour is amazing!
Many thanks for sharing it!

Buen encuadre a pesar del ángulo tan cerrado. Bien plasmados los brillos, colores y detalles.
