Hello dear TN friends.
Firstly I'd like to say that I'm thankful about your friendly words and critiques in my posts.

Today I'd like to dedicate this little one (15-18mm) to our friend Maurizio Dalla Via maurydv who now a days is posting a lots of cute Cignus and in a close past he post a lot of beauty and very well captured butterflies. I'm sure he will be able to find the ID.

It was taken in a pour light conditions with cloud sky, thats why the high 2000 ISO. I only framed and resised in PS.
I realy hope you enjoy this one.

See you all in TN.
Best wishes,

Hello Fransisco,
A fine capture of a resting Lycaenid butterfly that looks like a species of Hemiargus.
The technical quality is excellent and shows the features with fine detail from a good POV. I am surprised that there is so little noise with this high ISO, but that is because the image is uncropped.
Thanks and best wishes for the festive Season and 2010!

Hi Frtanciso,
Very beautiful close up and dedication.Colors,BG,POV and composition are wonderful.
Thanks forposting..

Dear Francisco!

Maurizio will be happy about this fine dedication, especially also because of the superb composition that shows these magnificent curves. This is so well seen, it seems that there are two butterflies... I also believe that the cloudy sky created a delicate and pleasant indirect light.

Kind regards

Beautiful butterfly between green leaves, good details. tfs.

You have said that the light was poor, but the background is really lovely for this pale species of butterfly. Beautiful details on the wings and antennae, and a gentle softness of colour.

Greetings, Amelia
