Tempo brutto, oggi non si esce, riciclo una coppia in amore, insolita la posizione ad ali aperte della farfalla superiore, dovrebbe essere una coppia di Polyommatus icarus, al solito attendo per conferma
Grazie Ozgur, Plebeius argus

Hi Silvio
Nicely composed shot. It is also interesting moment. Unfortunately your shot has some sharpness problems and on the other hand you have oversharpened the photo in Photoshop and there is a big noise visible in background around the butterfly. It could look better if you select only the butterfly wings (without the background)and try not to sharpen the antennas
Best wishes

Grandissimoooo,li ho beccati anche io quest'anno finalmente,ma lui con le ali aperte e' davvero un grande spettacolo,abbiamo raggiunto la perfezione assoluta come dettagli e colori,complimenti e buona serata,Luciano

Ciao Silvio.
Splendid flagrant!
Exuberant butterflies guarantees the perpetuation of the species!
Very appropriate POV and excellent details.
Thanks for sharing!
Best wishes,
José Roberto

Questo è un colpaccio Silvio. Beccare il maschio con le ali aperte e vederne lo splendido colore bluastro del dorso è una cosa più unica che rara.

Wonderful detail and color here. An execellent photo. Gary

I did a critique and it disappeared..perhaps I forgot to hit the buttons right...I sharpened it a bit but I also added it to theme of blue which is different than your usual Italian Yellow. Pleasing image and I don't think I helped it too much at all...

Hello Silvio,
What a pity of the noise in the BG. This photo has such a beautiful contrasting colours. Also in the WS is a lot of noise. I've made a workshop. I hope you don't mind. Great composition, BG and POV.
Kind regards,

Hi Silvio. A colourful one this is with one open and a close one as well. A nice top POV so we can see all the detailin the wing markings. A bit of noise but other have done workshops. TFS.

Ciao Silvio,
Qui e un giorno bellissimo ma un po fresco. Mi piace la coppia e la differenza di colori.
Quello che vedo e che hai fatto reduzzione d´imperfezioni nello sfondo, ma non l´hai fatto nei dintorni delle farfalle

Hi Silvio,

This Blue is my favorite butterfly. The only time I saw a live one was the butterfly exposition in Tucson. Beautiful shot of the pair with nice colors, good details and a superb composition.


Hi silvio,
Great colors. You try to make a "love mark" with grens but not so good I think. The clear of photos was my choice...
The species is Plebeius argus.

Hi my beloved friend, superb shot of these lycaenids with lovely colurs. Many thanks for sharing this beauty my friend!
Have a nice sunday!


Hi Silvio,
Very good shot of these two beautiful butterflies. Good POV and composition, sharp details and nice blurred BG. The small patches of noise that are barely visible would best be handled with blur tool in CS.

hI DEAR Silvio ,
Nice shot with beautiful colours.
Lovely butterfly.
Well done and TFS.
Kind regards

Bonsoir Silvio,
Il semble que to doives puiser dans tes archives. Ici aussi il fait un temps de cochon, comme on dit vulgairement. Mais heureusement qu'il y a des papillons dans les archives et ce mâle Plebeius Argus se montre dans toute sa bauté. La femelle est un peu moins visible. Tu nous la montreras sur une autre image peut-être
Bonne soirée

Very good composition.
Great detail.

Hello Silvio,

You have made a very fine close-up of these butterflyes. Image has high quality beeing clear and rendering well the colors. Very well addapted DOF allowing to keep main subject in focus. Composition with blurry background looks well and enhaces the feeling of sharpness of main subject.

Thank you for sharing,

Merhaba Silvio,
Yine güzel bir kelebek çalışması postalamışsınız. Fakat muhtemelen photoshop ile düzeltmeler yapılırken kimi yerlerde düzeltilmemiş ve kısmen neat image yapılmış yerler var. Herhalde unutulmuş olsa gerek. Yine de fotoğrafın güzelliğini pek etkilememiş.
