Superb shot Ivan.
Great sharpness and details.
I'm in nearly in the market for a DSLR and the 400D is probably what I'll get.

Like Ullas' I think color is the highlight in this capture although it has great details as well, thanks for sharing.

This is a superb specie Ivan that you captured in such a nice pose! This male looks more vibrant than the female by its amazing color! Like birds do most of the time too. I like this composition a lot and this beautiful BG. The subject is well isolated and it gives a fantastic result! Well done with interesting note and picture in WS. Thanks,

It is nice to see that your trip to Cyprus was succesful :) This is a very nice picture with great DOF and POV, I like also colouration of this photo.
Nice that you showed also a female specimen.

The Blues are my favourites, Ivan, and this is a lovely species endemic to Cyprus.
Excellent capture that shows this butterfly in its most pleasing aspect.

Hi Ivan, this is a pretty one. The blue has such a soft and gentle look. The lighting gives a nice effect. Displayed very nicely against the green background. Good job, thanks.

Wonderful capture of the Paphos Blue, very nicely composed with a great POV and superb pose, the details are excellent and i love the Blue against the green BG. I am so jealous as I have never seen any of the Blue Butterflies.

Beautiful blue color. Impressive picture from distance of 2 meters. Very nice pov and composition. All settings are perfect.
Blues are among my favourite butterflies. They look like small flying jewels. I like very much the way you presented the wing surface in this one - shiny, yet not overburnt. Also it contrasts nicely with the background. Composition is also appealing.
And additional plus for showing the endemic. But how to tell it apart from other species. Most of the blues are so much similar to each other :-)
Best greetings and TFS!
