merhaba Fikret bey,
önce ikili diyecektim, baktım üçlü, biraz daha dikkat edince dörtlü olduğunu gördüm. Kutsal mavi harika, diğerleriyle güzel bir kompozisyon oluşturmuşlar. koyu geriplan kelebeğin açık mavisiyle harika kontrast oluştumuş. netlik detaylar zaten süper. çok güzel bir çalışma olmuş. elinize sağlık.
selamlar.
Ahmet

Fikret Dostum,
"Kutsal" kelebeğine diyecek yok, ama biz ona mı odaklanacağız, sarı örümceği mi yoksa kırmızılı böceği mi esas alacağız ya da net olmasa da metalik rengiyle kendini belli eden sinek ile mi uğraşacağız bilemiyorum. Aslında bir ucumuz botaniğe dayanıyor, yoksa çekime nefis bir şekilde katılmış bu narin nebatı mı ön plana çıkarmalıyız? Bilemiyorum ki!
Mehmet

WOW! That is awesome! A very good picture of the beautiful butterfly.

But, also on the plant I see a Flower Spider, genus Misumenops, a plant bug, probably in the family Miridae, but can't tell species, and I think I see a Longlegged Fly family Dolichopodidae.

Quite a variety of insects in this one picture. Very cool!

Fikret,
Amazing shot! Excellent focus and very good presentation!
TFS!
regards,
Goldy

Hello Fikret,
this is a nice and clear picture as a whole and of course of the small lycaenide.
Besides the butterfly, there are further arthropods seen on your picture, a spider (possibly a crab spider),
a bug (possibly Graphosoma lineatum) and a metallic wasp of the family Chrysididae.
Really impressive!
Best wishes, Peter

Ciao Fikret,
questa foto è veramente superba!
Mi piace tutto: la nitidezza, la luminosità, i colori naturali, il contrasto con lo sfondo, l'inquadratura...
La inserisco fra le mie favorite.
Grazie,

Hello Fikret,
A perfect capture of argiolus along with a red bug and a yellow spider. Quite an ecosystem! This is such a well-lit and well-composed picture that I have no hesitation putting it in my favourites. many thanks.

Bonsoir Fikret,
Quelle lumière ! avec du monde à, chaque étage, en plus ! Une bonne partie de la photo est d'une netteté irréprochable. Le format vertical aurait pu donner quelque chose d'intéressant aussi, peut -être.
Antoine.

Quelle belle macro avec tout ces détails et ces insetes, de si belle couleurs et de si beaux détails.
Bravo

You've got a few creatures here in this image Fikret. The Holly Blue looks beautiful - I love the colour of her wings. She looks so pretty and dainty

Hello Fikret,
Superb razor sharp capture of a Holly Blue, nicely composed on the plant in the company of two other insects and spider. The flash is skillfully used to make the butterfly stand out against a dark BG yet preserving the daytime lighting.
Thanks for sharing this beauty,
Ivan

Hi Fikret,
Wonderful shot of this tiny and beautiful butterfly. The other small insects add that much more interest too. Immaculate sharpness and lovely colours. Very deft use of flash lighting and the dark BG works wonders here. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

Hello Fikret,
Very poetical picture, a sweet little natural story. I love this picture and will put it to my favourites.
I still haven't got a new PC and I'm not able at the moment to post pictures on TN.
