Il risultato in nitidezza è strabiliante e la morbidezza dello sfondo è di gran classe.
Il blu è ben bilanciato e la composizione centrata è perfetta.
Gran bel lavoro in PP.

Ciao Enrico, bella piccoletta, non facile beccarla così bene ad ali aperte, splendida nitidezza e ottimi dettagli, bei colori naturali, bravo, buon week end, ciao Silvio

Hi Enrico,
Wow what a perfect little butterfly. The focus and the DOF are spot on and the blue color is stunning. Excellant.
Denis.

Ciao Enrico. E' vero: molto comune. ma ad ali aperte è sempre uno spettacolo. Specialmente quando dietro l'obiettivo c'è uno che ci sa fare. Top per dettaglio e nitidezza. Gran stacco contro lo sfondo.

Hi Enrico.
Really excellent photo. Amazing colours and composition. Perfect point of view. Great sharpness, a lot of details.
Congratulations.

Hello Enrico,
Personally I think butterflies and moths dominate too much here and I don't know why but they are very beautiful. Having said that, this is a magical image. The colours, composition and DOF are just magical. Well done.

Wow, Enrico! That is beautiful!
At first I I thought it was a flower, the way it is perched on top of the stem.
Very sharp, with beautiful light and colors, and an excellent presentation.

Ciao Enrico,

Professional shot all the way! The contrasting blue on olive is extremely mesmerizing, sets the table & butters the bread for this crystal clear composition!

Ciao Enrico, grande immagine di questa Polyommatus icarus, perfetto lo scatto ed una ennesima dimostrazione del grandissimo salto di qualità, in termini fotografici, che hai fatto in un tempo così breve. Bravo. Un caro saluto, Paolo

Ciao Enrico
davvero piacevole questa immagine che dedichi a questa icarus,
nei prati di erba medica di mio suocero ne svolazzano parecchie, quindi i miei occhi sono allenati a vedere queste farfalle,
del tuo scatto mi ha colpito la nitidezza e il dettaglio di questa farfalla di dimensioni ridotte, anche lo sfondo risulta piacevole cosi come la composizione dei colori.
Bravo e complimenti!

Ciao
Davide

..Mi accorgo solo ora di quest'immagine: PERFETTA!! la cosa che più mi piace è la brillantezza dei colori esaltata dallo sfondo neutro
ciao

Ciao Enrico!
Splendida composizione. Perfetta in ogni dettaglio, ma quello che adoro è lo sfondo e il contrasto con la farfallina, già di per sè molto bella.
Complimenti: bravissimo.
ciao e buona serata! Vanda

Enrico, this is a fantastic shot of this butterfly. The sharpness and detail are great. Thanks for your comment on my 'Griffon Vulture'. Have a great week, Bill

Very beautiful image of the icarus. The blue is so attractive and I really enjoy the top dorsal perspective. Very nicely captured Enrinco. :)

Hi Enrico,

The stem is framing well the butterfly. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the Common Blue butterfly. The good luminosity is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.

Hello Enrico.
I like the symmetry and downward perch in this capture.
Very nice details from 300mm prime. Thanks and kind regards,
Jusni
