Ciao Sergio,
bel "ritrattino" di Zigena a sei macchie in una posa accattivante ed in una composizione ricca di forme e colori con uno sfondo neutro dalla bella tonalitÓ calda. L'ultima volta che sono stato in montagna queste Zigene erano praticamente sparite, mentre in piena stagione erano numerosissime.
Grazie e complimenti.
Buona settimana
Ciao Maurizio
