Ciao Melania,quando si riesco a beccare delle lyceaene ad ali aperte,lo spettacolo e' sempre assicurato.E' certo piu' difficile che prenderle di profilo,la composizione e i colori sono stupendi,un po' fuori fuoco il dettagli laterale delle ali,ma e' il prezzo che paga chi usa le reflex...buona serata! Luciano

Hello Melania,
An impressive macro of this beautiful Copper showing it clearly isolated from the soft background. Excellent sharpness and beautiful natural colours.
Many thanks and regards, Ulla

Ciao Melania,
Amiga, vedo la tua foto prima di questa, e non mi rendo conto che oggi siamo vicini! Molto honore per me!
Bella foto, POV quasi impossibile per una Lycaena, bravo! Molto insolito e suggestivo! ... Lo sfondo č una poesia, le parole sono!
Saluti, la settimana Felice per voi,
Jesús

Hello Melania,
Very beautiful photo in great colours and excellent sharp details. Good OOF BG and composition.
Regards,
Peter

Ciao Melania. Compo eccezionale e brava a staccarla completamente dallo sfondo. Sembra stia volando. Per quanto l'f/16 abbia inciso per la profonditŕ il time shot paga pegno al problemino indicato da Luciano in particolare se la farfalla non era perfettamante ferma.

Hi Melania,

TFS and have a nice day/week!
