[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Polyommatus icarus Male

A rather more intimate portrait of this common blue, which we all know and love so much. This chap is quite undisturbed by the flash going off a couple of feet away, unlike most Satyrine butterflies which seem to have very fast reaction times and an abhorrence of flash techniques!
Thanks for looking,

Hola Alan

Que pena que no hayas tenido suerte en la total nitidez de esta mariposa y claridad, por que el punto de vista es muy bueno.

Un saludo Antonio
