Voilà un papillon que l'on trouve dasn des terres incultes sèches et ensoleillées, ici sur le col du Spluegen qui relie les Grisons à Chiavenna (It).
La plante hôte est presque exclusivement sur l'Hippocrépide à toupet.
La chenille atteint 16 mm de longeur.

Bonsoir Claude!

A mon avis, c'est la plus belle photo de papillons que j'ai vue sur TN depuis des semaines. Tous les ingrédients pour définir une belle prise de vue y sont réunis. Et la photo a ce petit extra en plus que l'on ne peut pas décrire, mais qui est bien réel. Ce petit extra qui nous donne envie de regarder encore...

Amitiés

Hello Claude,
a beautiful and rare picture showing two coridon males close together.
Both specimens are in excelletn focus and seen with high sharpness.
The point of view is absolutely perfect.
Best wishes, Peter

Salut Claude,
Très belle photo. La composition en diagonal et surtout l'exposition bien effectué qui ne crame pas les blancs font que les papillons sonr merveilleusement bien détaillés.
Félicitation!

Wonderful macro of this pair of butterlfies.
Excellent detail showing all the scales and hairs on their body and wings.
Vibrent colours and perfect, soft light.
Great DOF (though slightly more would have been better) and a good composition.
Nice BG too.

Well done Claude,
Joe

Bonjour Claude,
This is an exquisite presentation!
The pose got, the very particular hues of the butterflies' wings colours, and the composition along the diagonal makes of this a remarkable picture.
The DOF is absolutely great also.
Felicitacions et merci pour le partage.
Mes amities,
JM

Hello Claude,

Claudine

Bonjour Claude,
Voilà une scène que je n'ai encore jamais vue avec cette espèce de papillon. C'est assez impressionant, dois-je dire. Ils te sont presque sortis du cadre;-) Très bien vu.
Bonne journée

Hello Claude,

What a beautifull image! I am impressed by the way you used DOF being able to keep both butterflies in focus. Sharpness of the image is very good making posible to observe the texture of the wings as well as the heary bodies of the insects. Fraiming is very nice as having few elements in the image viewer can concentrate on the main subject.

Thank you for sharing,
Cristian

Bonjour Claude,
Image parfaite à tous points de vue. Excellente composition et netteté, des couleurs absolument magnifiques et naturelles. Ce papillon je le connais bien, car il hante aussi mon pré dans le Haut- Valais.
Un grand merci et bon dimanche
Anne

Ciao Claude, great macro with wonderful couple in unusual pose, splendid colors, good focus, beautiful blurry BG, lovely details and excellent sharpness, very well done, ciao Silvio

bonjour claude
un beau resultat compte tenu de l'utilisation d'un objo qui n'est surement pas dedié a la macro,reste que celui du bas est quand même moins piqué de celui du haut

Hello Claude,
I'm really sorry to have overlooked this fabulous capture!! The details and colours of these two Chalkhill Blues are just fabulous and I love the way they're posing together! A fine dark green background too that makes them really stand out. Well done!
TFS and regards, Ulla

Hello Claude
I love the colour of these two butterflies! I"ve never seen such a blue colour on a butterfly before. I love their fuzzy blue bodies. Excellent detail and DOF.
