Ciao Silvio,oramai una non basta piu'...ce ne vogliono 2 di rarita' per stupire.La composizione e' meravigliosa cosi' come la prospettiva,secondo me andava schiarita un po',le farfalle al centro perdono molto in dettaglio risultando scurissime.Buona serata,Luciano

Hi Silvio,
Composition and colours are very nice with good details.
Regards Jiri.

Hai "fattu coppiola".... Ottima luce buon dettaglio. Compo all'altezza. Capisco Luciano ma spezzo una lancia a tuo favore. Con queste "isteriche" è sempre un'impresa avere tutto a posto.

hi Silvio,
wow. such a composition! or should i say, timing? :)
two of them together is the asset for your this photograph. the reflected light from the leaves here is a bit disturbing. but i can understand the situation. your subjects having earth colours, exposure-wise either you had to sacrifice the leaves or the butterflies. you have chosen rightly.

Hi Silvio,
It's very nice saturated colours and pair of the butterflies add the charm for composition.

Bonjour Silvio,
Une espèce intéressante de la famille Erebia. J'ai toujours des problèmes à les identifier, j'attends donc le livre de Gianluca pour pouvoir mieux les identifier.
Une jolie présentation verticale pour présenter ce duo.
Bon après-midi
Amitiés
Anne

A very different self contrasting but fresh presentation Silvio with 2 dark beauties on a darkish shiny BG. The difference in size of the 2 beauties add to the charm. Very attractive indeed.
Thanks
Himanshu
