Hello Silvio

The sharp and stark simple grey of the sunlit lycaendae, holds up so superbly with the fiery yellow BG. Fantastic colours and composition.

Bonjour Silvio,
Des teintes qui feraient le bonheur d'un peintre! Que c'est bien vu, Silvio. Très fine image d'une belle espèce de Lycaenidae.
Bon dimanche
Amitiés
Anne

Hi Silvio,

The flower is helping to frame the butterfly. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the Common Zebra Blue butterfly. The good luminosity is giving nice tints to the colors. Have a nice day.

Pierre

Hello Silvio.

Thank you for that picture of this small butterfly.

Very good shooting from butterfly on the flower. This Lycaenidae looks like my last post on treknature. Maybe you could help me on the identification.

The composition is good, with a good placement of the butterfly inside the frame.
The point of view is very good, with the butterfly alone on the flower.
The sharpness is very acute for the butterfly, which is difficult for such a subject in permanent agitation.
The depth of field is good. I think, but it is only my own opinion, that the background is a little bit too “present” and that it is not very natural (did you use neat image, or anyting else to reduce the noise of the picture?.
The colors are vivid and natural, with a good saturation.
The contrast is good.

Thank you for the sharing. See you soon on trek nature for other pictures.

All the best.
