L’ultima
Ciao ciao

Polyommatus icarus
(Rottemburg, 1775)
Argo azzurro
Lycaenidae

30-35 mm. - Comune in tutta Italia.
Piccolo lepidottero dallo spiccato dimorfismo sessuale. I maschi con ali superiormente blu e con riflessi violacei, margini soffusi di nero e contornati di frange bianche. Le femmine hanno livrea marrone con riflessi bluastri. Le parti inferiori, in ambedue i sessi, sono grigiastre o marrone chiaro, con macchie nere contornate di bianco e serie complete di lunule arancioni puntate di nero.
La specie, svernante allo stadio di bruco, compare da aprile in poi con due o tre generazioni annuali. Le larve vanno alla ricerca di varie Papilionacee (gen. Medicago, Genista, Trifolium, Lathyrus, Ononis, Lotus, ecc..); si presentano verdi con linea medio dorsale più scura e fianchi percorsi a livello degli stigmi da una fascia biancastra. La ninfosi dura circa due settimane.

L'areale abbraccia Europa ed Asia temperata, presente anche in Nordafrica e Anatolia. In Italia è specie alquanto diffusa dal livello del mare ai 2000 m. Nel territorio è tra i più comuni lepidotteri, lo si riscontra in cespuglieti, siepi e margini boschivi.

Ciao Silvio,

Wow, a superb shot with wonderful sharpness and from a great POV!
The butterfly with fresh morning dewdrops adds great beauty to this lovely butterfly. I like the great harmony of colors here. The green BG adds another piece of beauty to the shot.

Very well done, my friend.

best regards,
Paras

Ciao Silvio, you will be missed. Wishing you only the best in the future.

Best regards,
Werner

Bonjour Silvio
You announced it and you do it too
Sorry to leave you when just beginning to know you.
Another very beautiful composition with that extraordinary plant as beautiful as the butterfly itself; great dof and however a perfect blurred bg which throw the scene out of the frame.
Ciao my friend and good luck

Hi Silvio,
Nice shot my friend!
We'll be missing you from TL!
A lovely composition with this unusual position of the butterfly!
Great use of shallow DOF having the face and antennae in accurate sharpness!
Lighting is perfect and colors are superb.
Hope that some day we'll see your work again on TL!
Good luck and best regards,

dear Silvio,
a splendid picture of the beautiful butterfly and wonder flower.
the pattern and colors on its wing are excellently artistic, and the framed figure of red and green flower is wonder and amazing.
a superb shot of Polyommatus icarus, maybe its hidden inside of wings is more beautiful blue.

it is so regret that this is your last butterfly...
I cannot see the meaning of your "last"...
anyway thank you for your beautiful shots of wonderful butterflies so much,
Akihisa

hello Silvio,
A masterful shot for your last hurrah of leaving TL. A sad day for us all. You will be missed, my friend. Ciao and all the very best to you. Joni

Silvio
Alors tu choisis de nous quitter le jour de ton troisième anniversaire ici? Que de regrets tu vas laisser. J'espère que ce n'est pas définitif et que tu reviendras vers nous.
Je ne sais pas si c'est sous le coup de l'émotion, mais je trouve que tu as un peu forcé l'accentuation sur celle là (pour rattraper un petit manque de netteté?)
Amicalement
JJ

mi dispiace Silvio della tua decisione
ma da ammirare la tua freddezza.
ottima foto con grande esplosione di colori e di luce delle ali
sembra strano ma le cose migliori finiscono prima e le peggiori rimangono.
Ti auguro tanta fortuna in acque migliori.

Hello Silvio!

Excellent colours!
You want to leave TL, too?
What happend here?
Best regards!
Lili

Ciao Silvio

Please reconsider your decision to leave, or at the very least take a little time out, & return when you're ready. Ignore the forum fights, & just continue to post high quality images, like you always do. There have been far too many good photographers that have left TL already. Another superb macro shot of the butterfly. Good sharpness, color, contrast, pov & dof. Tfs. Ciao!

Ciao Silvio,

A sharply focussed butterfly which shows fine details of shape and pattern, as well as those bright dewdrops! I don't think I've ever seen one so dazzling!
Perfectly judged dof to produce a fine bokeh.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)
Please don't say you are leaving! You are the butterfly king!

Bonsoir Sylvio
Et pourquoi la dernière ?

Vos papillons, vos si jolies couleurs de l'Italie et votre bonne humeur nous manqueront. IL n'est pas trop tard pour changer d'avis peut être ?
Ce sont donc des larmes sur ce papillon ?

Stai facendo un lavoro superbo con le farfalle, non scrivo nè commento ma guardo perchè si fa prima.
Ottimo lavoro, continua mitico Silvio!

Hi Silvio,
First of all I'd like to say that it's sad to know that this is a goodbye posting...but we all have to make decisions and we each have the right to do so.
Secondly, thank you for this beautiful and colorful flower (especially the flower) and marvellous butterfly.
I wish you all the best.

Hi Silvio,
It is for sure that I'll miss you on TL, your genuine comments. I must mention that you do have a great eye for photography.
With that, let me wish you a great health, bright career and wonderful private life.
May God bless you!

Hope to see you soon on TL!!

Ciao Silvio,
I'm sorry you're leaving, but I understand you. Many times I've been tempted to leave, but never did, cause the only thing which I care here is photography, nothing more. You putted more than your technical experience here, and so now you're suffering, and you are right.
I can say that it will be a strong message for who is in a deep confusion among concepts like art and sensibility with arrogance and frustration...

I wish you to find photography and friendship elsewhere ASAP, as you foun here three years ago...


ciao

Bonjour Silvio.
Je ne sais pas de quoi cette image a souffert, mais il y a un problème de netteté, dommage.
Dans l’ensemble, elle garde tout son charme et les couleurs sont très belles.

HI Silvio
You took it in your strides for the past 3 years always giving us great shots, and I can't believe that the forum posts will drive you away.
Ignore them and continue doing what you have always done well.
Too many good photographers have left already and I think it would be a shame to let them win by leaving us.
As for this one I think there was emotion in your decision taking as it is not as sharp as always but nevertheless a very nice one to say Ciao.

Very striking colours and excellent detail.

Ciao Silvio,

non so il motivo per il quale tu non abbia più messo altre foto nuove, dopo di questa, e non voglio neanche saperlo, ma mi pare che con questa il tuo standard si sia abbassato un poco.
La vedo tremolante e non del tutto ferma, come invece dovrebbe essere sempre una macro.
Comunque due punti te li do ugualmente per incoraggiarti: continua, hai ancora una vita da fotografo davanti!

Ciao Silvio,
Bella farfalla, e uno sfondo piacevole,
Spero di vedere di più del tuo lavoro su altri siti
Soggetti buona foto e belle foto.
Ciao Sandor

Hi Silvio,

A very good macro, excellent sharpness.
Great POV. The rain drops look amazing on the butterfly's wing.

Best regards,

Superb picture with great details and colors.

Hi Silvio

While this is a very highly-scored shot, partly due to a lack of postings since, I have to be honest and say that to me, it's not as good as it should be.

There seems to be a lack of sharpness due to camera-shake, and the 1/125s shutter is probably the cause.

Attempts to sharpen it have resulted in characteristic ghost lines but unfortunately they have failed to save it.

No offence friend - you have done some amazing photos but this is not your best.

Namaste Silvio,
great capture of this beautiful butterfly. Nice macro of it with the seed. A sharp colourful composition. Tfs.
Have a nice weekend.

Ciao Silvio. Quite impressive, this is really fantastic! Congratulations.

Superbe délicatesse des perles de pluie. Je sais ce genre de cliché très difficile à réaliser pour avoir essayé sans succès.
Très bon travail

Just amazing. I know this is not an useful photograph critique but I `m speachless.
+ thank you very much for the warm wellcome.

Very nice macro shot, Silvio. Love the colors. The background blur is very nice. I dont see any noise at all. Very clean. But I wonder why you decide to use F upto 18. I think 8 or 9 would be good enough, and that would let you push your shutter up a lot more that helps with anti-shaking. Sothy

HI

effective DOF and light
a beautiful gift
Have a grate weekend

Bonsoir Silvio

Diane

OH MY GOD, What a superb shot this is , excellent sharpness with background blur, so beautiful and i have no words to express my feelings .

great great great work .full marks to you for the brilliant composition.

Silvio,
Quelle belle image! Comme toujours elle me touche et nombres de tes images me font rêver de douceur et de simplicité, une ode raffinée à cette nature qu'il faut savoir préserver. Un regard humble et chaleureux qui est tout à ton honneur.
Si tu quittes ce site, j'aspire à ce que tes images puissent être publier car un livre contenant tant de beauté rentrerait volontier dans l'espace de mon modeste univers.
Merci de tant de partage et de mots que j'ai apprécié.
Ce papillon ruisselle de mille goutte et ressemblera à un cœur chagrin mais lumineux et coloré.
A la prochaine fois
Anne

Silvio
Beautiful done , amazing capture
TFS
have a good day
