Hello Luciano,
Another masterpiece image of a tiny blue. Once again you managed to photograph your subject in an attractive POV giving us a great look at its beautiful markings and colors. Pin sharp focus showing exceptional detail and your exposure is perfect with no blow out areas. I love the BG.

Ciao Luciano, a mio parere Polyommatus thersites, manca il puntino in basso, tipico di icarus, ad ogni buon conto la solita splendida macro, con colori brillantissimi e dettagli super, bravissimo, ciao Silvio

Hello Luciano,
I like such light; interplay of light and shade. Very well captured. Nice exposure and fine composition.
Good work. Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice Week,

Bonjour Luciano,

La fleur aide au cadrage du papillon. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails du papillon Azuré de Chapman. La bonne luminosité donne de belles teintes aux couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.


Ciao Luciano,
spectacular presentation of Chapman's Blue on a colourful blossom of late summer that is providing a glamorous stage for its visitor. Nice to get an impression of the surrounding Georgian landscape in the background, too.
Thank you!
With best regards,
