Ciao Sergio,
a me non sembra P. icarus, ma vista la presenza delle piccole code potrebbe essere Cupido argiades o Cupido alcetas (il riconoscimento spetta a chi Ŕ sul campo, a video Ŕ difficile l'ID, ad es. mi Ŕ sembrata P. Icarus una Glaucopsyche alexis di Silvio), buona la definizione anche se la punta dell'ala pi¨ vicina va fuori fuoco, molto belli i colori.

Ciao Sergio, anche a me questa piccolina sembra una cupido, ma con tutte le ciambelle che confeziono il mio parere Ŕ inaffidabile, comunque una bella piccolina dallo splendido colore, ottimi dettagli, bravo, ciao Silvio

Hello Sergio,
A very nice macro of a male Short-tailed Blue, Everes (Cupido) argiades taken from a fine dorsal POV with pretty good sharpness and excellent contrast with the grass blade and the OOF natural BG.
Well done and TFS!

Hello Sergio

A beautiful capture of this small blue.
The colour is vivid and striking.
Excellent POV and composition.
Well handled DOF.
The textures of the butterfly and blade of grass are excellent.


Superb macro-the colors are wonderful and the BG is perfect.

Hi Sergio,
Wonderful colours, nice details and sharpness. i like the composition: the curled leaf which the butterfly perched on so beautiful..
TFS. Have a nice Sunday,
