Bonjour Anne,
A superb capture of the Damon Blue caught while resting with closed wings.
If part of the edge of hind-wing were not covered by a little of the grass-head that it is resting on this would be absolutely perfect.
As it is, it is practically faultless and goes as one of my favourites of a butterfly that I have never seen in real life.
Merci et bonne journée,
Amicalement,
Ivan

Hello Anne.
This is a very fine work.
Nothing to critic about this wonderful picture, so I will only look and enjoy.
My compliments and best regards, Felipe.

Hi Anne,
Splendid photo of this interesting Butterfly species, TFS!

Ciao Anne, great macro of this lovely little butterfly, excellent sharpness, beautiful blurry BG, fine details and splendid natural colors, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Anne,
die hat sich gelohnt, Deine Exkursion ins Val d'Hérens! Ich bin richtig begeistert vom Bild, von einem Bläuling, den man selten zu sehen bekommt. Du setzt den Blitz sehr gekonnt ein, das Resultat ist beste Schärfe, angenehm neutraler Hintergrund und das strahlende Tier mit den Pastellfarben.
Ich wünsche Dir einen schönen Abend!
Dieter

Hello Anne,
Perfect POV and great light, indeed a very great use of flash! Congratulations! Also very suitable composition.
TFS, Regards Jesús

Hallo Anne!

Ich bin glücklich zu sehen, dass dieses Bild ein grünes Sternchen gekriegt hat. Es verdient es auch! Mir gefällt vor allem die Zartheit des Schmetterlings und des Halms, aber auch die Einheit der Farbgebung und die wunderbare Komposition. Der dunkle Hintergrund hebt die hellen Farbtöne des Insekts speziell hervor, ohne einen zu starken Kontrast zu bilden. Sehr schön!

Grüessli

Markus

Hello Anne,
A lovely new species of Blue that I've never seen before! A very nice capture too that shows clearly its special markings and colours. The dark background is perfect too. Well done!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Hi Anne,

A beautiful photo with nearly a mono tone appearance to it. Good detail and sharpness.
Regards,
Phillip

Ciao Anne,
una splendida immagine di questo bellissimo Licenide, che non ho mai fotografato e probabilmente visto, bellisimo il contrasto con lo sfondo scuro, eccellente la nitidezza con colori naturali.
Grazie e complimenti
Buon pomeriggio
Ciao Maurizio

bonjour Anne
c'est difficile de choisir entre tes superbes photos, j'aime celle-ci en particulier pour le papillon aux couleurs douces, rarement vu sur TN, l'harmonieux contraste avec le BG vert, sa pose acrobatique, et le tout avec des details très précis,
Passe une bonne nuit
Jacqueline

Una bonita coincidencia Anne. He estado consultando y hay varias Polyommatus muy similares: dolus, fabresse, galloi, nephohiptamenos... que lógimamente requieren la observación de un especialista solamente con la fotografía.

Tu toma excelente ya que, a diferencia de la mía, controlaste muy bien la luz, cosa que yo no pude lograr y tuve que jugar con algún programa para conseguir un contraste aceptable. En mi defensa decir que la luz era muy plana, de primera hora de la mañana y a bastante altura :-)

Un abrazo y enhorabuena por la captura compartida: Josep Ignasi.

Liebe Anne,
ein in Mitteleuropa als Rarität geltender Bläuling, den Du hier in vollendeter Schärfe kunstvoll ins Bild gesetzt hast. Konnte die Art erst im Vorjahr auch an einer Stelle im Süden von Wien für mich wiederentdecken. Muss nachsehen, ob meine Fotos davon auch nur annähernd so gut taugen wie Deines hier ...
Mit Dank und herzlichen Grüßen,
Peter
