Hi Marcello,
Thanks for the update from yesterday's top side. I'll keep this close to the other. Excellent sharpness throughout and very true colour representation. Well done and Thanks

Hello Marcello,
exquisite, very precise, perfectly well presented lively portrait of that Lycaenid that is not often seen and presented.
Very nicely imbedded in that rocky background.
The workshop presentation is very welcome, too, as it is offering also a distant but well sufficient view of the upperside. Thank you!
My best regards,

Hello Marcello,
Beautiful image!
Very sharp!
Well composed.
Good light.
Well done
