Merhaba Özgür,
A very nice macro of L. piritous taken from a nice POV with good sharpness, lighting and colours and set in a pleasing composition on the white flowers. The BG is not the best but that can't be helped!
It's still a very good shot.
Thanks and best wishes,

Hi Ozgur friend,

A impressive and beautiful Lycaenidae, excellent capture, great angle and placement masterful central level. This is a very good picture to learn, I like a lot of these butterflies. But obviously I do not have the skill to photograph as well as you. So I am glad to see this very well managed work.

Congratulations, it's a beautiful job. This Leptotes of Turkey, is very interesting.



Greetings, my best wishes

Hola Ozgur.
Great super Macro. Very sharp and excellent light. A lot fine details in all the frame.

Hi Özgür!

You present us a fine capture of a species of the Blue. The butterfly is well in focus and this reveals good details. Maybe the vivid background could a be aliitle more blurred (greater aperture) to calm it down a bit.

Kind regards

Hello Ozgur
the Leptotes pirithous is perfectly in focusing on a dark background very neutral that very puts in prominence the depth of the photo. Optimal contrast and light on the flower and clear details.

hello Ozgur
great sharpness composition with good light and beautiful colours

Hi Ozgur,

A beautiful butterfly in a lovely pose on the flower. I love the pose showing off the wonderful colors and details of the wing markings. It stands out well from the busy background.


Hallo Ozgur
Such a delightful little butterfly with plenty of fascinating details and features. The Lang's short-tailed blue is indeed a striking butterfly and a real show off. It has lovely patterns and markings on its wings and I especially like the two “eyes" on the bottom of the wing and the white furry body. It reminds me of the fur of a little kitten. This is a lovely image that has a soft touch to it. The white flower it is resting on, gives it an innocent appearance. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Impresionante nitidez en el colorido y texturas de la mariposa, sin duda el resultado de un excelente enfoque y una buena luz.
Un abrazo Ozgur: J. Ignasi.

Hi Ozgur

I cannot remember ever seeing the Lang's short-tailed blue butterfly so thanks for the
Introduction. It is clear to see where this beauty got its name from. That is a real short
and stocky tail it has. The details are nice and sharp showing the excellent features of
the insect very clearly. Good colour saturation and the composition is nicely balanced.
Only one small nit and that is the OE area on the flower. It would have been great if the
flower too were clearly visible.

Well done and TFS.

Hi Ozgur

Belle présentation,les couleurs sont parfaites et la netteté excellente.

Merci pour cette belle composition...JP

Hi Özgür,
Beautiful macro taken from a very well chosen POV. Sharpness is second to none, clever use of available light, very well blurred background, and all these in a fine composition. Magnificent job MF. Bravo.
Friendly regards, László

Hello Ozgur !
This is a beautiful butterfly, I like his markings and his "eyes" on the hind wings. You have captured him very nicely - details, colors, composition, POV, pose of the butterfly, evrything is excellent. Very well done !

Hi Ozgur.

Such a great looking butterfly. Nice perch and taken so well from dorsal pov. Nicely exposed against the silenced bg.

TFS and best regards.

Bu kelebek en favori kelebeklerimden biri. O küçücük boyunda harika desenler saklıyor özelikle göz benekleri muhteşem...
Elerinize sağlık.

Hellow Ozgur,
Great close up of this butterfly with good exposure and sharply focused.Interesting and unique details on the wings.

Hi Ozgur,
an very nice presentation from these butterfly with good pov and sharpness.
Fine colours.


Namaste Ozgur,
nice presentation of this shot. Close up of the insect on this flower is incredible. Depth and sharpness are outstanding and light is perfect. Very well captured shot. Thanks for sharing.
Have a nice evening.

This is a little beauty Ozgur. The little 'jewelled buttons' on the back of the wings look as if they have been sown on by hand, by the most delicate of hands. A lovely velvety texture on the wings too. I am not surprised that it has had so many views and comments.

Warm wishes, Amelia
