[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I think this is really the last butterfly of the season 2017 from my region. Even the last Polyommatus icarus male show signs of old age, while the Vanesse have gone into hibernation because of the cold and the rain that has hit the countryside for days ... goodbye in the spring ..


Penso che questa sia davvero l'ultima farfalla della stagione 2017 dalla mia regione. Anche gli ultimi Polyommatus mostrano i segni della vecchiaia, mentre le Vanesse sono andate in letargo a causa del freddo e della pioggia che da giorni colpiscono la campagna...arrivederci in primavera..

Hello Luciano,
Appears this little butterfly is at the end of its days. I don't know if I have ever seen one quite so tattered and torn. makes you feel a bit sad for it. Nicely photographed in fine detail and beautiful color tones.
I actually saw a Cabbage White last week which looked to be in perfect shape. The weather was pretty cold and rainy out, so it wasn't moving to fast.

Eh si Luciano, proprio la fine e la farfallina che na ha viste di tutti i colori e che neanche mamma sua la riconosce li testimonia bene, finale triste, ma appropriato, bravissimo, arrivederci a primavera leggiadre creature dell'aria, buon week end, ciao Silvio

Indeed, this one (very well captured) looks beat up...

Hope you continue to share with us gems form your archives, until springs comes.

Have a lovely Sunday, Luciano,


Bonjour Luciano,

La végétation cadre bien le papillon. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails du papillon Argus bleu. La bonne luminosité fait ressortir les couleurs. Bonne journée.
