Günaydin Ahmet dostum!
Ulla and I saw this small lycaenid species near Alanya in March 1988 and I took a bad analogue photo of it.
So it is very nice to see this excellent macro of C. trochylus taken with fine sharpness and natural colours against a pleasing clean BG in a fine composition.
Thanks for this fine reminder my friend and I wish you and your family a peaceful Ramadan.

Hi Ahmet,
We have a cousin of this species here in India named the Grass Jewel (smallest butterfly in India). Shall post sometime. You have captured it very well with sharp details and a lovely composition. Thanks a lot for sharing my friend.

nice closeup, greetings Ori

Merhaba Ahmet hocam,

Çok harika bir makro.
Bu türü doğada farketmek ve gözlemlemek çok zor.
Çok küçük olan bu türü bütün detayları ile birlikte çok güzel görüntülemişsiniz.
Odaklama ve bakış açısı, sıcak renklerin yönetimi çok ustaca olmuş.
Elinize ve emeğinize sağlık.

Selam ve saygılarımla,
Mehmet
