Hi Thodoris, what an exquisite composition. Great subjects, both have truly beautiful colours and tones. The background is blurred just right; I guess it was difficult to find background to contrast a little more. (A true nature shot doesnít use false backgrounds..) well done! I really like the foreground focus, and DoF just fab.

Great capture, Thodoris!
Splendid colors and POV! I like the BG and the sharpness, too. Very good work.
Bravo and TFS

Beautiful butterflies so well depicted!
Superb macro work, and a good point of view is resulting in a fine classical composition...
Excellent colours and fine details, DOF spot on!

Lovely couple in lovely act. Excellent picture. Sharp and clearly seen. Great composition, pov and dof. Well done and cheers.
charming picture of a couply of tiny Lycenids in lovely pose, with good details and the colours of grassland in dry heat of summer. And a very charming story, too.
Details are really good, considering the very small size of these Lycaenids.
The species is very likely to be:
Freyeria trochylus (Freyer 1844)
E: Grass Jewel,
wingspan: 18 - 20 mm.
distributed from a few places in Greece through Turkey into subtropical and tropical Asia and Africa.
With thanks, and best regards,

I think I like this one the best of the two you've put out lately. It's a very good capture of the two blues going for a regeneration! Not too intrusive but discreet and intimate enough to offer a holistic view of butterfly life with a good background, sharp details and bright colours. Thank you very much for this contribution,
Peter Stoeckl is right - it's Chilades trochylus. Very rare butterfly - I don't have ANY picture of these species in my database (European Butterflies and Moths).
I have to ask if I could add this picture to my database please?
