Hello Luciano,
A fantastic macro shot of this beautifully marked Sooty Copper. I like the slightly cinnamon tint color of its wings and also the intricate markings. The vertical composition works out nicely in this instance and the detail is exceptional.

Ciao Luciano, gran bella macro e piacevole composizione, splendida luce, ottima nitidezza e magnifici colori, bravissimo, ciao Silvio

This is professional imagery at its best, Luciano.
The Sooty Copper looks majestic on that yellow flower.
Stunning details on the butterfly.

Hello Luciano,
This is a specie I am happy to meet in my region. Indeed a lovely colorful specie.
Excellent capture from low POV with very sharp details on the wings.

ciao Luciano
Une superbe macro, bonne netteté et de très belles teintes.

Bonjour Luciano,

L'insecte est bien placé dans le cadrage. la prise de vue permet de voir les détails du papillon Cuivré fuligineux. La lumière met en valeur les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.
