Hi Fikret,
Stunning details, the texture of the wings looks delicious! Good job with this beautiful Lycaenidae!

Hi Fikret,

Why do you suppose the antennae are "drooping"? It gives him a "sad" look! Nice shot.


A very charming composition with this Holly Blue balanced on a peculiar but shapely perch, Fikret.
Your work is always of very high class and this picture is no exception.
Thanks for sharing this beauty.
