looks like an immature female Common Blue to me, could be wrong?

Nice captures either way...

I love the almost metallic shine on these wonderful creatures. I think both versions are equally lovely images.

Lovely. I think I prefer the way you have cropped and presented v1, but they are both fantstic images.

Superb shot.

Fabulous! Never seen one as green as this, and you managed to catch him against perfectly co-ordinated tones. V1 is so unusual as a composition, with that strong vertical.
9 Aug 2009 10:14AM
Beautiful captures.

Worth the wait. Great shots. Marginally, #2 for me

What lovely captures! So cool you managed to compose these so well too. I have no idea what they are but the words 'mayfly' and 'damselfly' spring to mind. Although I can't say for sure that I even definitively know either one!

This might also be one of the Eastern Mediterranean varieties. You need the best local guide to insects you can find.
