Splendid photo of this rare Butterfly species, congratulations for Your contribution on TN!
Another remarkable macro and sharing with great details Dostum Ivan!
The sharpness and POV are excellent and clarity is amazing. The colors are natural and very well shown. Great blurry dark BG gives nice contrast to this species. It seems that all butterflies are exclusively posing for you!:)
TFS and have a great day and WE MF!

You must have a wonderful network to hear about the presence of a rare butterfly 250 miles away! It's always such a pleasure to see your rarities - I would never get to see them otherwise. You captured this perfectly to show off the beautiful wing markings and elegant colors. It is sensational against the dark background. The workshop showing the opened wings is equally magnificent.

gracias por la id. de mi Polyommatus, según la nueva nomenclatura. Tuve dificultades en hayar la especie ya que no tengo una sistemática de trabajo e identifico con meras consultas visuales en libros e internet. Suerte de algunos colegas como tú que lo hacen más fácil.
Tu toma es sorpredente , primero por la rareza de la especie y como no por su belleza; también por esa bonita combinación de colores. Sin complicate en detalles adicionales y con fondo homogéneo y apropiado.
Un abrazo: Josep Ignasi.

A wonderful macro of this rare butterfly species,great sharpness,colors and excellent details.TFS.
Bi slavęn germ,
Good morning Ivan,
Travelling 250 miles to find this rarity shows great commitment, and I wonder if you drove through the night in order to catch her sleeping, walking up and eventually flying away. She is such a rare beauty, with fine details and beautiful markings against a perfect BG.
I enjoyed reading your description, and looking at the workshops as well. Interestingly enough, when I 'Googled' the Latin name, I found this photo and also your photo of the male form. There are only 2 pages referring to this rare butterfly, and most of the references are yours!
I also noted that you used a long lens - that seems to be the way forward for me. I can rarely get close enough to butterflies in Norway.
Warm greetings, Amelia

merhaba Ivan dostum
I missed this great shot since I was in field trip in this date. I can visit it newly.
Scolantides orion is very beautiful lycaenid and presents in Turkiye too. Unfortunately I have not seen it yet.
you are lucky to see it. Dark spots look it very pretty.
Coloration and light using great. sharp details and POV/DOF also very nice. dark BG nicely contrasted to its light colors.
çok teşekkürler dostum. iyi geceler.
