Excellent shots Stefan - you can even see their "nose hairs".

And ear hairs LOL. How do you get them to sit still long enough to get the shots?
I see lots of cool bugs but they are all over the place like they had ants in their pants,
Maybe I just answered my question.

Thanks to all of you for your warm and friendly words.

#1 is a Polyommatus icarus

#2 is a Phengaris nausithous

Cheers,

Stefan
