Hi Silvio,

This is certainly one of the most beautiful butterflies of all! And this is a magnificent macro showing it off perfectly. The blue, grey and white are gorgeous and the details and textures are excellent. I love the touch of the yellow flower behind it and the nice green background. A lovely off-center composition.

Hi Silvio,
Very nice capture.Colors,contrast,POV,BG and composition are wonderful.
Thanks for posting.

Lovely colour in this shot Silvio but it seems a little soft in focus(wind movement perhaps,or is it just my eyes ?)
Some shades of blue and red are difficult for sensors to pick up so it could be that.
The yellow flower behind does seem reasonably sharp though.
Still a very pleasing image.
Nice work.
Cheers

Hello Silvio,
Lovely to see a blue butterfly in mid-winter!!
I like the composition and the lovely colours. I wonder if you've cropped this heavily as it isn't quite sharp. Nevertheless a Very fine capture.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Ciao Silvio,
bella macro di Licenide (a video non riesco a vedere apprezzabili differenze con P. icarus per una sicura identificazione, ma sono inesperto), eccellenti POV e composizione, la definizione è un po' morbida, i colori sono molto belli e saturi.
TFS.

Hello Silvio,
An excellent open-wing macro of a male Glaucopsyche alexis taken from a fine POV with good sharpness against a pleasing OOF contrasting natural BG.
This species is rare in Sweden but I hope to photograph it one day!
Thanks for the inspiration!
