Salut Anne,une tres belle composition et une espece que j'aime beacoup et que finalement j'ai rencontre' Mercredi moi aussi.L'absence de lumiere du soleil donne un couleur different a la petite Lycaenide,details impressionants!! Mes compliments et belle journee',Luciano

Hola Anne

Bella mariposa de color verde, no vista por mi, con una profundidad de campo excelente. Una buena imagen.

Un saludo de Antonio

Ciao Anne,
una meravigliosa composizione per questa Tecla del rovo, una farfalla dagli splendidi colori, che preferisce posarsi sulle piante o sull'erba, più raramente sui fiori, bellissima immagine
Grazie e complimenti
Spero che tu trascorra un buon fine settimana in montagna con bellissimi fiori e splendide farfalle.
Con amicizia

Bonjour Anne
Il est très beau ce Callophrys, la couleur est bien uniforme, ce qui n'est pas toujours le cas.
On se demande où ils vont trainer pour perdre leurs écailles qui les rendent si attractif.
Merci et bravo pour cette prise de vue bien naturelles
