la diagonale tra luce ed ombra ha messo in crisi la tua sony,ma il sostenuto e provvidenziale colpo di flash hanno salvato la semele
buoni i dettagli.....

Splendida macro di questo esemplare di Hipparchia semele, con una livrea molto bella,ottima nitidezza ed eccellenti dettagli,belli i colori naturali.
Ciao Marco.

Hello Luciano,
well seen and presented, the image is very sharp with nice details , the butterfly resembles with the surroundings very well, liked the pov and the composition.
Best regards Siggi

Ciao Luciano
Grande macro con colori caldi e dettagli super.
Ciao Nico

Ciao Luciano. Sfruttato alla grande il passaggio luce/ombra. Colori fantastici ottimo dettaglio. Non voglio fare il guastafeste ne' il professore.... ma non mi sembra che, in H. semele, la macchia ocellare apicale delle ali anteriori abbia contorno giallo. Somiglia tanto a H. statilinus ma mancherebbe una a macchia nera tra le due nervature cubitali dell'ala inferiore.... se non gliene avessi strappato uno spicchio..... Sei sempre il solito...... Mo' vallo a spiegare allo spagnolo..... ah ah!!


hello Luciano,
very well captured picture with all good quality. light, colour, detail, and composition is superb.
my best wishes,

Hello Luciano,
Another attractive butterfly shown in exceptional detail. It's camouflaged wings patterns are beautiful and I would imagine very effective, when trying to hide from predators.

Hello Luciano,
Nice Capture with excellent details of the subject and an originality of colour,the diagonal line of light and shade is remarkable which proved not only the depth of this creation but creator too,My regards,_Joy.

Beautiful and interesting photo Luciano! Good composition, wonderful lighting and good sharpness. This is not Hipparchia semele , it is Hipparchia syriaca (Staudinger, 1871) . H. semele is absent from the Aegean islands (and from the Greek mainland). According to some authors the subspecies occurring in Rhodes is the endemic Hipparchia syriaca ghigii Turati, 1929

Hello Luciano,
Your critique of my latest image made me look at yours and what a fabulous image I found here. It is obviously feeding, possibly taking some salts off the rock. What a beautiful image and well seen as it is rather well camouflaged. Well done and best wishes my friend.

Hello Luciano,
An excellent macro with fine natural coloration, details & pose. Well done & TFS. Regards & best wishes!


Hello Luciano,
Incredible clarity, focus and razor sharp details. Very nice colors. The exposure and the superb light makes a wonderful photo. I like this wonderful species of butterfly. I never meet this interesting and rare species in my region.

Bonjour Luciano,
Une Hipparchia spéciale qui se distingue des "nôtres" par la coloration du bout des ailes. Pas facile de photographier sur le sol, mais c'est l'endroit où ces espèces aiment à se poser...
Excellente netteté et une lumière pas facile.
Bien vu!
Bonne semaine

Ciao Luciano, luce difficile riosolta da una flasciata d'autore, ottima nitidezza sulla statilino, ma anche questa la trovavi dalle mie parti e mi' non me ne fa' vede' un centinmaio anche di questa, bravo, ciao Silvio

Hi Luciano,
Perfect macro shot. Nice natural colours with

Bonjour Luciano,

Le papillon est bien placé dans lew cadrage. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs du papillon Coronis. La bonne luminosité fait ressoprtir les couleurs. Bonne journée.


Salut Luciano

Tes photos sont toujours superbes, j'aime beaucoup
le POV que tu as choisis au niveau de ce papillon
et le DOF de l'image, toujours belle lumière,
superbe focus, netteté et détails, TFS
