Yes this is the smallest, these days seen here but very active and fast so I don't follow and you did well nice and perfect.

Bonjour Luciano,

La végétation cadre bien l'insecte. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails du papillon Azuré du trèfle. La qualité de la lumière embellit les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.


Hello Luciano,
A very nice POV. Open wings and lovely colors.

Hello Luciano,
Another excellent sharp detailed photo of a butterfly. Fine DOF in beautiful contrasting colors.

Another mid-night blue by daylight...indeed great subject and BG by excellent details well done again LUCIANO GOLLINI

Hi Luciano,
Probably the smallest species, but you managed to capture the butterfly very well, with open-wing position. Sharpness and DoF are both great, and I also like the off-centered composition a lot. Excellent photo, congratulations!
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Ciao Luciano una bella composizione bei colori è nitidezza di classe n° 1

buona serata
