Ciao Silvio,grandissima gestione del colore,vedere un arancione cosi' saturo che non sbava minimamente non e' cosa da tutti i giorni,la perfetta nitidezza e' stata decisiva.Ottimo scatto e composizione,buona serata,Luciano

Ciao Silvio! Perfect work. Ideal macro. Fantastic sharpness, ideal focus. Nice light and colours. Well done!

Ciao Silvio
sai sempre come riuscire a realizzare una composizione di gran qualità: ottimi i dettagli ed i colori molto vividi e solari della piccola Melitaea che ci portano alla mente la bella stagione. Eccellente la messa a fuoco e la gestione della luce. Grazie
Livio

Bonjour Silvio,
Tu sembles avoir une réserve inépuisable de papillons! Cette image-ci me plaît particulièrement par sa bonne composition décentrée et la beauté des ailes de M. didyma. C'est un papillon que je vois quelque fois, mais qui s'échappe toujours quand je veux faire une photo. Je regarde donc la tienne avec grand plaisir.
Bonne soirée
Amitiés
Anne

Hi Silvio,

Very good photo, very good presentation!

Ciao Silvio,
nel mio hard disk c'è ancora qualche farfalla che non ho ancora presentato, di qualcuna conosco la specie, per altre ho qualche difficoltà, ma per il momento come hai visto ho presentato un rettile; splendida immagine solare di una farfalla che già da sola è luminosa ed affascinante e che ci presenti in una bellissima composizione piena di luce e di soave "leggerezza".
Grazie e complimenti
Ciao Maurizio
