Oggi ripropongo agli amici di TN una specie che amo particolarmente.
L'azzurro delle ali è unico rispetto alle altre specie.
Un azzurro radioso e lucente, che fra qualche settimana tornerà a vedersi brillare nella campagna siciliana e segnerà l'inizio definitivo della bella stagione.

Hi Marcello,
Just beautiful. Many thnaks.

Bonjour,
Voilà un joli papillon qui ensoleille mon début de journée.
Bonne journée.

Sencilla, pero bien captada. Por su textura puede parecer que no, pero los que hemos visto especies similares sabemos que su texrura crea un efecto óptico engañoso.
- Mañana ya salgo para Italia jajaja.

Hello Marcello,
Brilliant capture of the Green Underside Blue that is very rare in Sweden. I love the underside and notice that I've missed your earlier capture of this. Great sharpness here and beautiful colour against a fine soft background.
Many thanks, Ulla

Dear Marcello,
excellent portrait of this rare Blue, very clear, well detailed, well presented. I enjoy looking at this perfectly well lighted pale blue of wings. Thank you!
With best regards,
Peter
