Hi! Sorry for not posting on a while, the bird season has been quite busy, however we got some time off on Canada day and I went out and captured this small butterfly. I hope you like it, sorry for not having the ID.

Hello Simon,
Interesting to see a small Lycaenid from up there in the North. I think it may be a female of Plebejus shasta, but I am not 100% sure. The image is sharp although a bit dark. Also, I would prefer to crop some off the top and bottom, and reduce the background noise a bit. I have done all this in a workshup. I hope you find it useful. Thanks.

Hola Simón,

Tengo mis reservas con respecto a la composición. La veo muy "cuadrada" para el conjunto. Pero lo que si puedo decir es que el tono lumínico de esta foto es perfecto. Me agrada esa luz tan precisa, que ha hecho que el conjunto se salga de lo común. Supongo que tiene que ver 1/1000s de expo. La apertura evitó que se difuminara el fondo, pero insisto, el resultado es bueno.



Ciao Simon, beautiful butterfly in a wonderful colorful composition, beautiful details and excellent sharpness, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hallo Simon
Lovely capture of this tiny butterfly. The hair on the edges of the wings and on the body is pleasant to look at. I like the striped antennas. Very pleasant composition, with a fairy like appearance. Thanks for sharing. Best regards
