It's really good that you've saved up these lovely shots for us to see now that darkness has descended upon us! This is a wonderful capture of the female Holly Blue with wide open wings. I always liked this butterfly a lot as with the large dark markings it is very different from other blues. You show us excellent sharp details and the natural powder blue colour very well. Lovely composition too.
Many thanks, Ulla

Hi, dear Peter.
What a beauty you have pictured and shared to us. The wingspread and your POV are wonderful. We can see all fine details of the butterfly. Colour pattern is amazing. It is pleasant to me to touch down of its fine clothes. I like the beautiful surroundings of the butterfly, charming buds and blurred leaves. Realistic and at the same time artistic picture. Tender song in honor of butterfly beauty. MY compliments and heart wishes.
P.S. I am touched by your kind words, which serve the reliable support for my life.

amazing capture, excellent details and composition
I had a chuckle..Like me you have an emergency camera. I too have one..A small Leica P&S which does 16:9...makes for great panoramic or even nice close in shot such as this one. Very good then sir!

Das kleine Bild machte mich stutzig. Was ist das für ein Bläuling? Glück hast Du gehabt,den Faulbaumbläuling mit offenen Flügeln zu finden. Das ist ja ziemlich einmalig. In meinem Bildarchiv habe ich zwei Bilder mit geschlossenen Flügeln gefunden. Wusste nicht, dass sie so ein eklatantes Inneres verbargen..
Danke für dieses interessante und farbenfrohe Posting.
Einen schönen Tag noch

To jedno z ładniejszych zdjęć motyli jakie widziałam w TN. Uważam tak , bo Modraszek wieszczek jest u Ciebie uosobieniem wdzięku, urody i delikatności. Detale, ostrość i barwa podkreślają wszystkie te cechy owada. Wspaniale też skomponowałeś kadr.
Bardzo dziękuję Ci za to zdjęcie i pozdrawiam

Outstanding shot with amazing colours and sharp details. Superb natural lighting and exposure and among the greens it looks majestic. The DOF is precise and lets it stand out from the BG. Excellent POV to capture this fabulous pose and the composition is just marvellous, it doesn't come better than this. Kudos.

Another excellent picture from you, my friend! I like the nice green bg complimenting so well the insect and showing us its environment... It seems to me that we don't see the blue color so often in nature and it is maybe why each time I see this colors I'm so frequently impressed by the subject wearing it... You did a great composition and I like the great angle (POV) you took to capture it. Details are amazing!

So many pretty butterfly shots in your gallery, I had a hard job choosing one to critique. This one is such a lovely butterfly and in a perfect pose. Nice POV, perfect sharpness and perfect exposure. Good DOF allowing the butterfly to stand out from the BG
p.s. I'm not posting until I have caught up with everyones photos, time seems to have escaped me lately.
