Hola Silvio,
Una foto muy clásica, con una luz sobria que permite apreciar bien la fantastica coloración de esta lycenida con alas abiertas. Como siempre, un buen trabajo, hecho con alma y técnica.
Saludos / Gracias por compartir,

Bonjour Silvio,
Mais où vas-tu donc chercher toutes ces espèces de papillons? Encore une espèce, dont je n'ai même jamais entendu parler.. quelle richesse et biodiversité dans ta région! Image simple qui met bien en relief la coloration et les motifs des ailes supérieures de ce beau Lycaenidae.
Un grand merci
Amicalement
Anne

Ciao Silvio,
A very fine capture of the female of Plebejus abetonicus, an Appenine species of blue that I know little about, but looks very similar to P. idas.
The POV showing her with her wings open was taken with excellent sharpness and natural colours, to be set in a pleasing composition with a nice blurred grassy BG.
Thanks and best regards my friend,
Ciao,
Ivan

Buen encuadre y preciosos colores Silvio. Quizás la
nitidez algo justa. Bello trabajo.
Saludos: Josep Ignasi.

Nice change of ISO for this one. I no noise at all. I would say good notes due to apparent length and few words I can translate...These show why you are number one!
