Lycaenidae sp

For this small Lycaenid, Also I have no the ID! ... I hope I get lucky like in my last posts! :)

This is a fairly common Lycaenid at this time of year when the dry season begins. The photo was shoted with 2.5X zoom and f/3.5 using my small Canon compact. In situations were the insect lands on an overhanging branch, with the evils about 35 inches behind, I can achieved an interesting out of focus background, which is quite difficult to do with a compact camera! ...

Thanks by stop and visit!

Hello Jésus,
Nothing to criticize, just excellent in all aspects. Very beautiful!

Hi Jesus,
I can't help you with ID, since I'm not familiar with the butterflies in your part of the world. You need Ivan.
But the picture is wonderful with fine colors and composition.
Good sharpness and fine DOF, the subject is well isolated from the BG.

hello Jesus
a other super picture with nice pose and beautiful colours
sharpness and light are very good
thanks greeting lou

Ciao Jesus,
un'altra fantastica cattura di Licenide, dettagli incredibili e splendide tonalità dei colori, una composizione armoniosa con uno sfondo morbido e delicato
Grazie e complimenti

6 Hi Jesus,
A wonderful composition with pleasant colours and very good sharpness.
Best wishes, Pambos

Hello Jesus,
Great shot with good sharp details and lovely colours. I also like the POV, DOF and blurred BG. Well done!

hello Jesús

don't take this as a negative critique,
if the trunk of that flower (where is the butterfly)
would also be in focus, i think this photo
would be more beautiful, the POV and
framing are excellent, TFS

Hello Jesús,
I can't help on the ID but it is a first class capture of this small Lycaenid butterfly, The details of it resting in the closed wing pose are excellent with fine sharpness and natural colours against the neutral BG. Fresh specimen too! This deserves a name!
Thanks and I wish you a happy Christmas and successful 2011!

Bella y equilibrada disposición del conjunto. Buenas tonalidades también.
Aquí tenemos varias Satyrium sp. parecidas a esta, una en particular muy parecida pero no es la misma: http://www.leps.it/indexjs.htm?SpeciesPages/ClossTitan.htm

Tb veo parecidos a Satyrium edwardsii, creo que esta no es Europea.
