No Privacy II by AdMalamCrucem No Privacy II by AdMalamCrucem
Those two Common Blue (Polyommatus icarius) gave me a hard time.
I thought they would be easy to shoot, given that they didn't move because too busy copulating...
Yet, I was totally unable to have every part of both insects in clear focus. They were not perfectly in line, but well... I think it still remains a pretty good capture ! ;)
Besides, we also see their genitalia very well, and there are parts of the butterflies where I can even count the scales on their wings. :)

You'll see I used a rather short focal length (25mm), that's because I had a macro concept screwed on the lens.

Thanks a lot to :iconweird-osaka: for the identification ! :hug:

BTW, after making some research about this species, I found out that it has seven different names in French... And besides that, we have a normal language. =D

One of the Blues. Looking at the male I'd say Common Blue (polyommatus icarus), but looking at the female I'm not quite sure.
What I do know for sure is that the one on the left is the male, and the one on the right is the female.
