Bonjour Roberto,
Un Lycanidae que j'ai aussi dans mes archives, mais je n'étais pas sûre de son ID. Alors merci pour cette superbe image, parfaitement nette et finement présentée.
Un arrière-plan neutre et qui met en relief la beauté de ce petit papillon.
Bonne soirée

Terrible focus which has been achieved in this macro, Roberto, and very well-chosen delicate tang that sits on this Plebejus argyrognomon. Perfect on the background gone.
Well done, Rob.
