Hi friends in TN,

This gram blue was registered on the decaying bark of a palm tree close to the water. The wind was rather strong hiding the tails behind the wings. The day was bright and the weather was very humid.

Thanks for viewing!

Hi Jusni,
your tiny butterfly is so pretty, only a little part of the wings in orange and glittering blue - but that's realy the eyecatcher. Excellent sharpness, wonderful arrangement, thanks

Hello Jusni,
this is a great picture of a little beauty. The wing pattern is presented with amazing
sharpness and brilliance. You can trace the details down to single scales such as the blue ones
at the hindwing margin. Light and composition are perfect, too, resulting altogether in an attractive picture.
Best wishes, Peter

Hi My dear friend Jusni,
What a perfectly taken macro capture of this beauty perched on a wonderful wood texture. Excellent shot in all around.
TFS and cheers,

Good show Jusni..I have heard may times in the past the word 'registered' used and I understand it but my mind works in mysterious ways and I wonder as to where it got its starts. i think perhaps in science yes? or do you know? But whatever it is the correct work in the science filed!

Hi Jusni,

A beautiful Gram Blue positioned so nicely on the bark. The colors are wonderful - I love the blue sparkles. Fine details of face, body and wings. The butterfly looks marvelous against the dark background and the composition is superb.

Hello Jusni,
A superb capture of a Gram Blue, perfect in every respect except perhaps a little too dark, but that is a minor point in what is otherwise a first class macro.
Well done and thanks for sharing this beauty,
best regards,

Hi Jusni,
Very good color, DOF, & detail - nice POV.
I like the diagonal comp, with the wood bark an interesting substrate.
Well done!
