Ne Ŕ valsa la pena di festeggiare l'estate con un'alzataccia, la cercavo da una vita, nuova per me, champagne!
Nel ws il rovescio, schifosa macro che stava su un fiore rasoterra e non ha voluto saperne di chiudere le ali, ma il carattere distintivo Ŕ proprio al rovescio...

Hello Silvio,
A real beauty displaying true and natural colors. The exposure looks great and entire butterfly is tac sharp. Love the intricate markings and especially the white fringe around the edges of it's wings. Overall composition is quite attractive. A pleasure to view.

Hi Silvio,
Thank you for including the valuable underside view with your posting - without it I would struggle to separate this little butterfly from the other Pyrgus species. These active little butterflies can be very difficult to photograph, so well done in getting photographs of both views.
Best wishes, Nigel.

ciao Silvio
excellent image, this species are difficult to capture with the wings wide open, fine composition, beautiful blurred BG
great light and colors
Have a good night
Jacqueline
