Descrizione
Licenide piccolo caratterizzato da dimorfismo sessuale: i maschi sono superiormente di colore azzurro-cielo con riflessi rossicci e margini sottili neri. Le femmine hanno tonalit√† pi√Ļ o meno chiare (in dipendenza del tipo di generazione) e margini scuri molto larghi. Le parti inferiori sono, in ambo i sessi, biancastre con spolverature basali azzurre e una serie di punti neri talvolta evanescenti.
Biologia
E' specie bivoltina con sfarfallamenti in aprile-maggio e in luglio-agosto. Le uova vengono deposte in primavera per lo pi√Ļ sull'agrifoglio, mentre in estate sull'edera. I bruchi sono verdi o con toni giallastri, dorsalmente con una serie di disegni triangolari rossastri. Essi danno luogo a fenomeni di simbiosi con formiche del gen. Lasius. Le crisalidi della seconda deposizione sono svernanti.

Hello Luciano,
Your Holly Blue looks so pretty in contrast with the light green buds and lily white flowers. Razor sharp focus allowing us to view its unique features in fine detail. The exposure is perfect and the framing is quite eye catching. A pleasure to view!!
Ron

Hello Luciano,
It is a pleasure viewing this outstanding macro. Amazing sharpness and excellent clarity. The light and details are great.
Thanks for sharing!
Marius.

Beautiful composition where white is the main protagonist. Luciano, in imi humble opinion, you could enhance more this beautiful image with a slight increase of the exhibition and emphasizing the highlights. I have added a workshop that I hope you find respectful.

Hello Luciano,
Beautiful Holly Blue and quite well captured. Very hood exposure on butterfly as well as n white petals of flowers. Bit sharpness on flowers could have been better in my test, but the way Hernan used Highlights white petals look overexposed.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice WE,
Srikumar

Ciao Luciano, gran bella ed elegante farfallina ripresa splendidamente, magnifici colori, ottima nitidezza e bei dettagli, bravissimo, ciao Silvio
