[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

Eastern short-tailed Blue
Oestlicher Kurzschwänziger Bläuling

Family: Lycaenidae
Distribution: Eastern Europe, Ukraine, Western Russia, Turkey

I have taken a picture of this special Lycaenidae close to Peter Stoeckl's garden in Vienna, last year.
As this species is almost not present on this site,
I think it could be an interesting contribution. However I don't have many informations on this species.
The ID has been given to me by Peter Stoeckl.

Nice macro of this butterfly in difficult light conditions, but beautiful natural colours. Top of the wings are a bit OOF. Taken from a very good POV with a nice blurry background and a fine composition.

Liebe Anne,
bei meinem ersten Blick auf TN nach längerer Pause gleich ein Foto von Dir mit diesem kleinen alten Bekannten von den Steinhofgründen nahe der Otto-Wagner-Kirche anzutreffen, ist sehr schön für mich. Habe den Moment der Aufnahme noch in frischer Erinnerung und insgeheim stets gehofft, diesen pontomediterranen Bläuling, der auch in Wien zu Hause ist, hier von Dir präsentiert zu sehen. Für mich hat er sich bis jetzt noch nicht in so schöne Pose gebracht. Beschwingt lebendiges Falterportrait in duftig sommerlichem Licht, ein Freude.
Mit Dank und herzlichem Gruss aus Wien,
