Dear TN members,

Family: Satyrinae
Latin name: Orsotriaena medus medus
Common name: Nigger

I got the identification from the following website.
Hope it also make a guide to all TN members.


I fire the flash as it stop at a place with heavy bush. Guess this is how it gets it name as bush brown.

It was early in the morning with a lovely sun shine. At first i was hoping the shine could help me for a better exposure but end up it resting in the heavy bush. That make me no choice but to fire the flash.

Hello Kean,
a really good picture of this shadow-loving butterfly.
Perhaps, the species is shown for the first time at TN.
In a few days, I will create a second TN-Theme on Satyrinae and I would like this picture. Is that o.k.?
Best wishes, Peter

Hello Kean,
Nice capture of this Satyrid butterfly, O. medus, with good sharpness and the use of flash was skillfully carried out to give the right exposure.
Well done and thanks for sharing this one,

Super image, Kean.
Brilliant colours and very sharp focus.
The details on the wing are just great.

Hello Kean,
This is a fascinating butterfly. Not only the patterns of the wings are spectacular, but also thes eyes. Amazing their blue and the sort of radius going our from the centre of the eye. Very special.
Thanks a lot and have a nice day

Also, lovely natural colours and lights here.

Hi Kean,
Beautiful B-fly, good job of getting this one in shade using your flash. I like the color and wing patterns. I did a WS to try and improve it.
Well done,
