[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Lycaenidae are the second-largest family of butterflies, with about 6000 species worldwide, whose members are also called gossamer-winged butterflies. They constitute about 40% of the known butterfly species.

The family is traditionally divided into the subfamilies of the blues (Polyommatinae), the coppers (Lycaeninae), the hairstreaks (Theclinae) and the harvesters (Miletinae); others include the Lipteninae, Liphyrinae, Curetinae and Poritiinae. A few authorities still include the family Riodinidae within the Lycaenidae. The monotypic former subfamily Styginae represented by Styx infernalis from the Peruvian Andes has been placed within the subfamily Euselasiinae of the family Riodinidae.

Buna MF Horia,

Excellent composition and great POV, the exposure looks great. Incredible work MF!
TFS and have a nice day!


How did you manage to keep in perfect focus the both butterflies and in the same time to separate the background from them so well with f/14 , Horia! Just brilliant !?
