With converter is use, this macro has turned out to be a beauty, Ivan.
Purple Hairstreak is a modest looking butterfly with those faint eye-spots on the edge of its lower wings. In some varieties of the Blue in our country, these spots are almost garish.
It is a steady hand-held shot with very fine details on the wing facing the camera.
Thanks for sharing it and all the best.

beautifully composed, good use of lighting and the hairstreak just perfectly poised against green background. what more one can ask for, a fresh specimen, this one looks as one can make from the notes, has performed its sole duty. tfs.

first I thought it was up side down, ;-)
You manage well with your long 300mm to take close-ups.
A nice composition with good POV. Sharpness and details are on top. Well exposed with nice light and colours.
Well done, my friend.
Ha en skön helg.
ps det vore bra om du kunde skriva ut det svensk namnet på fjärilarna.

Funny downwards location of a cute butterfly and very attractive diagonal composition of the shot. Reproduction of the insect's texture and all details are breathtaking. Green key of picture execution is amazing. Lights and whole colour palette are so pleasant for look. Have a good weekend and all the best.

splendida composizione per questo piccolo Licenide, bellissimi e delicati i colori, mi piace molto la luce radente che esalta la straordinaria definizione dei dettagli delle ali. Bellissima immagine.

The head, antennea and legs are razor sharp.
And it standout well from the BG.

A finely illuminated and well detailed Hairstreak individual within a fine, reverse-diagonal composition Ivan, the sharp image stands out nicely against the uniformly green BG. Nice of you to share this beautiful image with us.
Have a good weekend my friend,

you canon tele lens is acting as a fine macro lens too, the image has god good details, i have observed that shooting these small butterflies is tough even with real macro lens. well composed shot with fine pov, very nice smooth bg and lovely green color,
tfs & regards

Ivan: You have done well to get any image of this species - I have so far failed, because they so rarely come within camera range. I must admit I had never considered using a telephot lens & converter combination that (along with the DX sensor "crop factor") gives almost a 600mm equivalent to photograph butterflies, but for this species it is clearly worth trying. Nicely lit and showing a lot of fine detail - now show us one with the wing open ;)

This is a funny capture of this tinny creature! I like this upside down composition and excellent details on its wings. I have seen similar specie this summer in Mont-Tremblant National Park and I tried many times to get a good picture but did not succeed. I don't have the right equipment to do macro with so small subjects. I use the 100-400mm lens and it is not adequate. Maybe I'll ask Santa for a good macro lens... As usual, your notes are interesting. Thanks,

Great sharp-detailed photo in very beautiful light and colours. Very good POV and composition. Nice green OOF BG.
that's a new one for me, I never saw it before. I love the little tail ;-)
Is it always hanging upside-down? Thanks for sharing it with us, bye and greetings

Your photo with few elements in the image looks great. Viewer attension quickly focus on the butterfly. My first question was why it is upside down. Your excelent note has answered the question. The sharp image of the butterfly showing well wings texture and pattern look greatagainst the blurry background. Using light well colors are shown very natural with many delicate color tomes.
Thank you for sharing,

This is total relaxation.
She should be called a bat butterfly with this upsidedown method of resting!
You have had a steady hand to maintain the sharp focus and capture the details.
I like how the alder twig makes a strong diagonal across the frame.

Great image once again Ivan, here I like that you did not rotate the image to put the butterfly standing up. Spot on details and color, splendid work.

Excellent focus and pose. The details, POV, DOF and composition is lovely. Lighting is used well, also the OOF BG gives a good contrast to the butterfly, i like it. TFS.

sorry for my delay. as you predict, I was in field and birding in last weekend other three TN members. Now, I can visit your last shots. This species occurs in most of parts of Turkiye. But I cant capture it. In last summer, I looked for it in several times. I couldnt. You are lucky twice. You saw it and captured with a great macro-shot, with great focus and composition. Colors, BG and frame also superb. Notes are, as always, great to read and informative. Thanks for sharing this beauty. best regards my friend. eline sağlık dostum.
