A very fine, nicely composed capture of a male and female P. icarus with closed wings on a Plantanus flower head. The POV is great and taken with excellent sharpness and lighting against a neutral natural BG.
Nice memory of the summer and thanks for sharing it.

Wonderful capture of these two Common Blues posing very nicely on the grass. The light is very beautiful and the colours look lovely against the smooth green background. Great sharpness too and well composed.
Many thanks and regards, Ulla

Hello Maurizio !
Great picture - sometimes it's hard to capture one butterfly, but you managed to get two on the same picture ! :-) I love the composition and the soft blurred BG very much, the insects stand out very nicely, and I also like the pose of the left one, with the head down. Very well done !

Such a finely composed and expertly exposed image of two Common Blues against a pleasantly OOF greenish BG Maurizio, the partly visible blue overwing edetail of the right specimen improves the colour balance rather nicely. TFS indeed!

Hi Maurizio . This is beautiful . Your use of the summer light has given bright natural colours. i like very much the POV/DOF they show up so well from the plain BG. Your detail and colours in the butterflies is spot on . well done TFS.

This is really wonderful. The sharpness and colours are amazing. The contrast against the perfect soft BG is awesome. Very beautiful light and POV.
oggi eravamo sintonizzati sulla stessa farfalla,pero' vinci con la coppia 2:1!!
ottima la definizione e la posa a fronte
di un verde BG..
vedo con piacere che hai adottato in calce la firma con il ©,e' giusto per salvaguardare
la bella produzione che metti in rete.
ah..per quanto riguarda il Micro Nikkor,e' un ottima lente che ti consiglio.
un ultima domanda Maurizio..ma per ridimensionare le foto che programma usi?usando Paint shop pro
e mantendo il formato 800pixel,non riesco a postare foto oltre i 150kb..istruiscimi!!!!

What a splendid capture,the composition is terrific.
Wonderful POV and DOF.

You present us a beautiful picture of these Common Blue. They are well known, but not always so nicely presented as you do it. The colours are superb and the naturally blurred background highlights the butterflies very well. I also appreciate the very detailed notes a lot.

two marvellously lighted blues in a very pretty artistic composition. I love their elegant poses. The combination of dominant green, blue and some orange accents is delightful to look at. A fairytale scene. Thank you!

A very fine composition of the blue pair.The plain smooth BG isolates the beauties well.The subjects themselves stand in excellent clarity with good details showing off their wings.I especially love the light filtering thru the slight opne wing of the blueon the right.I guess this was early morning or late evening sun.The perch entering the frame diagonal works well too.
TFS & Cheers
