Satyrinae Orsotriaena medus medus
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

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,

In spite of the poor light you managed to get a very fine capture of this beautiful butterfly. The wing pattern is clearly presented and is very beautiful. Fine colours too. Well done!
Many thanks, Ulla

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

Hello Kean a fine specimen with lovely detail never seen one before great catch tfs rgds Necip.
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.

very beautiful butterfly and its very nice macro. Splendid coloration. Nicely focused and composed. POV and contrast between green leaves and dark (brownish) color also great. TFS, well done
