Icaro on Medicago.
das ist wundervoll - ich hab' noch nie einen solch scharfen Bläuling gesehen, meist reflektiert das Blau und verwischt das Motiv, aber Deiner ist erstklassig.
Ein tolles Arrangement mit super Farben, gefällt mir sehr gut, herzlichen Dank und lieben Gruß

So good to see a new photo from you.
It's so pleasant when a total understanding is showed like in your pictures.
The right size of the subject for the right proportion of the composition...
Impeccable focus and exposure settings.
It's so beauty and enjoyable all the fine details got here.
My compliments and thanks for share.

What a stunning shot of the beaiutiful Plebicula amanda.
Excellent details on the Butterfly, with a great DOF and OOF BG.
I really like the vibrant colours and the light is lovely.
Best regards Siggi
die Bläulinge stellen hohe Ansprüche an den Photographen aber du wirst dem herrlichen Falter voll gerecht. Was ich von dieser Aufnahme mitnehme: der Falter ist für mich neu. Dein Sony Apparat (ich nehme an mit Zeiss Optik) leistet Ungeahntes. Ich brauche genau eine solche Kamera für meine nächste Fahrradreise.
Herzlich grüsst Dich

An amazing photo of a butterfly that is very hard to photograph! They are same family as our Azure butterflies, aren't they? Very tiny and hard to approach and they seldom open their wings. Wonderful work!
Hello my dear old friend Peter,
Delighted to see your wonderful posting after a while!
Your beautiful butterfly image I always fond of!
this is another great one with the best pose in wonderful colouration and superb details
wishing you a happy festive season
Hi, Peter, dear friend.
I am very glad to watch your new picture of splendid butterfly. As usual you have reproduced all its beauty amazingly. Superb sharpness and details of the insect hair and colouration. POV is great and allows us to see all attractive features of the butterfly. I also like wonderful nicely smoothed BG and excellent composition of the image at whole. My kind regards and TFS. All the best to you and your family.
Amanda beautiful woman's name,
framing and fine focus,
** I hope the winter is not too harsh :)

Good to see you again, this is a beautiful species and you have captured him perfectly. Amazing sharpness, colour, composition, DOf and pose. Great work.
Grosse Freude wieder ein Bild von Dir zu sehen! Fast hätte ich es verpasst, kommst Du immer so leise in den späten Abendstunden..
Unzweifelhaft ein Stoeckl-Bild, könnte von niemand anderem stammen. Reizend ist sie, die "Amanda", von einem fast überiridschen Blau und dazu noch mit einer so grossen Selbstverständlichkeit ihre Schönheit zeigend.
Warte jetzt auf die "andere" Flügelseite, die Du uns versprochen hast.
Hab herzlichen Dank und herzliche Grüsse
Good to see a posting from you after so long.
You deserve each of your points over and over. You are an excellent photographer with lots of talent. Wonderful capture of this beautiful butterfly. I like the "powdery" blue effect on the wings. As usual a flawless presentation with superb sharpness. Truly precise in every aspect, with excellent framework. I appreciated looking at this beauty. You are a master at work and I always enjoy looking at your images.
I'm very glad to see a post from you again - we were wondering if you'd left us for good!! I expect your teaching load is heavy and I gather last summer was not the best in Austria. Even so I hope this is the start of a new series from your end and it is a lovely image to enjoy in the darkness of winter!
Excellent macro showing very sharp details and lovely colours!
Many thanks and best wishes, Ulla

What a fantastic sharp detailed and clear photo of this Wikkeblauwtje. The contrasting colours are amazingly beautiful. Very good composition and OOF BG. Great work!

a top-class shot of this beautiful butterfly!
Exceptional clarity and detail.
Very well composed.
Very well done,
A stunning macro of a male Polyommatus (Plebicula?) species taken with fine sharpness and DOF considering the low aperture that also provided a great BG.
Excellent POV in this open-wing capture and the composition is very pleasing.
I know this species well and if this is amanda then it must be an unusual form with very narrow black border to the wings and no black going on to the veins near the border. Perhaps the alpine form looks more like icarus.
Whatever, this is a joy to look at an a fine reminder of summer.
Nice to see you back on TN!
A wonderful (and recently rare) surprise visit from you. We truly miss you around the site MF and hopefully 2009 would present you with more opportunities to treat us with your special brand of Peter Stoeckl magic.
As customary from you a vibrant and brilliantly captured macro with amazing details of the subject. The POV is a classic. The attractive natural colours are remarkably pleasing to the eyes. The OOF green-and-yellowish BG is outstandingly complimentary and it makes the dazzling blue Amanda stands out like a very sore thumb (with other words there is no chance of missing or ignoring it). The composition is great as it makes excellent use of space and distribution forming 2 triangles on the image – one inclusive of the insect and the other without.
Well done MF and TFS.
PS. More importantly; I want to thank you for your wonderful friendship and all that you have meant for me this past 2008. Also, I want to wish you and your loved ones a joyous Christmas and a wonderful New Year. May this Christ-fest and the imminent 2009 bring you everything that is beautiful and admirable, provide all your needs with blissful exuberance, present you with that which is edifying and inspiring, grant you blessed peace and harmony, and bestow upon you a myriad of worthwhile pleasures and breathtaking moments with close friends and dear family.
