Polyommatus icarus
Al momento non scrivo note su questa farfalla molto conosciuta e presente su TN con una notevole frequenza.

La fotografia
E’ stata scattata con il teleobiettivo 300 mm., con misurazione della luce spot, regolazione manuale del tempo e del diaframma, ISO400. E’ il mio primo “post” su TN di Polyommatus icarus (Icaro maschio), ovviamente non la prima fotografia di questa specie molto comune, ma ho scelto questa immagine, poiché fa parte della serie di farfalle (Vanessa cardui, Colias crocea,Pieris rapae,Lycaena dispar,Lycaena phlaeas,Vanessa atalanta) fotografate posate su astri selvatici (aster diffusus).

Witaj Maurizio,
It's an amazingly beautiful picture with perfect focus, sharp crisp details and marvellous composition. I love the light and colors and how the butterfly and flower stand out clearly against the green bg.
TFS and best wishes

Hi Maurizio,
Very nicely composed and exposed image with some very nice detail and really excellent colours. Interesting to see the right hindwing has a little recent bird damage, allowing a fragmentary view of an orange spot from the under side. Thanks.
Alan

Bonjour Maurizio,
Encore une très belle image avec une touche poétique. Le cadrage est parfait, le sujet très fin. J'aimerais juste faire une petite remarque: je trouve que l'image a été travaillée d'une manière un peu trop "smooth", spécialement l'arrière-plan. Ceci n'étant que mon humble opinion!
Une belle journée à toi
Anne

Hello Maurizio,

Hello Maurizio,

Your gallery is lovely! This picture is simply beautiful! The butterfly seems so fragile. The colours look so natural and fresh. DOF is spot on and the details perfect. Love it!
WELL DONE!

Hello Maurizio !
Wow, I am completely in love with this picture ! I love everything here - the pose of the butterfly with wings wide open, the frontal POV, the lovely colors, the way he is sitting so nicely on a cute flower, the blurred BG, the wonderful details and the sublte blue color of the butterfly... A very poetical picture. Very well done !
