Species: Z. knysna

The Dark Grass Blue or African Grass Blue (Zizeera knysna), is a species of blue butterfly found in Africa, on Cyprus and the Iberian Peninsula.
Sometimes mistakenly called Zizeeria lysimon (Hübner), that species name is invalid as it is preoccupied by Papilio lisimon Stoll, [1790], a butterfly in the family Riodinidae.
The wingspan is 18–23 mm for males and 21–26 mm for females.The butterfly flies nearly year round.
The larvae feed on Medicago, Melilotus, Acanthyllis, Armeria delicatula, Polygonum equisetiforme, Tribulus terrestris and Oxalis.

Hello Luciano,
Nice sharp capture of a species of Lycaenidae that I have also seen on the Canary Islands. Great natural colours and use of difficult lighting so that this little Blue is well seen here.
Thanks and best regards,
Ciao,

Merhaba Luciano,
Çok güzel bir kompozisyon ;renkler, netlik süper olmuş..tebrik ederim, saygılarımla..

Ciao Luciano, non capisco proprio il commento di Sergio, non pretebdo di essere un buon critico di foto, spesso e volentieri toppo per superficialità e commento favorevolmente foto che non lo meritano, a questa gli ho fatto le lastre, i dettagli sono proprio fine, la messa a fuoco è ottima, nitidezza c'è, i colori son ben naturali, la luce è ben utilizzata, la farfallina non è certo spettacolare, ma deliziosa, valli a capire sti Juventini, a me piace molto e non lo dico per amicizia che se te ne potevo ridare 'ndrio qualcuna lo facevo volentieri, bravo, ciao Silvio

Hello Luciano,
fine capture of this blue butterfly with good sharpness and nice details. I especially like your well chosen POV, the beautiful colours and the splendid light.
Best wishes,
Helmut

Hello Luciano
Beautiful photo with good composition, wonderful lighting and very good sharpness.
Regards,
Christodoulos

Ciao Luciano. Guarito! L'esemplare è uno spettacolo. La foto un po' meno. Troppa grana e poco nitida.
