by Lesley Aeschliman

Blue is the color of sapphires
But today, it is the color of my heart
I'm so lost without you
And I just don't know what to do

And blue is the color of the sky
But today, it is the color of my world
And I want to know why
You left without saying goodbye

Buna Horia,
Excelenta compozitie avand culori superbe si o claritate de invidiat.
Fundalul dar si floarea contribuie la un contrast deosebit de placut si care evidentiaza din plin subiectul.

Hello Horia,
A very nice macro of a male Plebejus argus showing its wings open with fine sharpness and colours and well composed on the white umbelliferous flowers.
A fine summer memory!
Thanks and have a good week,

Buna Horia,
A beautiful little butterfly wings over macro composition ...
Color and detail are very beautiful, Plebejus argus
Best wishes,

Hi Horia,
A photo delicately treated, very good effect of light and depth. The fund has been attractive, and coloring is really good. I disagree a bit of composition, it seems best to place the butterfly and the flower a little to the left side anyway, that's a matter of taste and does not affect the technical quality of the photo. TFS & Regards,

Ciao Horia, lovely little butterfly on a beautiful flower, wonderful blurry BG, splendid sharpness and fine details, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hello Horia,
Very nice photo of this butterfly in excellent sharpness and details. Beautiful contrasting colours with the white flowers. Maybe a piece of the left side can be cropped, but that's personal. Good POV and OOF BG.

Frumoasa realizare, ma gindesc cu nostalgie la vara trecuta, dar si acest anotimp pe care o traim in momentul actual, are farmecul sau, care trebuie savurat! Si strugurii de ieri, au ajuns intr-un stadiu de vin maturat in aeasta perioada, de ce nu vrei sa o gusti?
Numai bine,

Delicate and soft colours + beautiful species made this picture very beautiful. I like POV and composition - a lot of free space around insect allow to imagine how smal is this Lycaenidae species.
Very nice work Horia!
All the best from Lodz,

hello Horia
super picture with great details and very good sharpness

Maestro , ce faci ?
simfonia albastra. Faina compozitie.
Nu te apuci si tu de un colaj cu familiile de fluturi, sa le vedem si noi mai compacte.
O seara faina,

Hi Horia,
A lovely and delicate presentation!
I like the deep green used as background to stand out the subject, good use of the DOF.
Also all the fine details got on the wings and body of the insect.
Congratulations and thanks for share.
