Ciao Vinny, my today neighbour, beautiful butterfly on a splendid flower, fantastic bright colors, great sharpness and fine details, superb macro, very well done, ciao Silvio
A fine capture of this lycaenid butterfly sunning itself. The technical aspects are great and taken from a fine POV in a pleasing compostion with the marjoram flowers.
However I don't think this is icarus!
The straight abdomen with brush like tip suggests that this is a male and though a little blue light is reflected from the thorax there are practically no blue scales on the wings though there is a little bluish tinge.
I therefore think this is a male 2nd. gen Brown Argus, Aricia agestis,
Thanks and kind regards,

This is the kind of photos "Beautiful" in TN. I like the proper handling of layers of focus taking care of mantain focused in butterfly and flower simultaneously. Good work, with a very interesting POV,
