Colias crocea (croceus) (Fourcroy - Geoffroy 1785)
Clouded Yellow (inglese)
Le Souci (francese)

Ordine Lepidoptera
Super famiglia Papilionidea
Famiglia Pieridae
Sottofamiglia Coliadinae
Genere Colias

Pieridi
Alla Famiglia delle Pieridi appartengono circa 1500 specie, ma in Italia e in Europa sono presenti meno di una ventina. Sono facilmente individuabili, perché hanno ali generalmente bianche o gialle con pochi disegni. Il dimorfismo sessuale è sempre evidente e ci possono essere anche differenze stagionali fra le diverse generazioni.
Le zampe sono tutte uguali e funzionali. Le ali posteriori hanno il bordo interno lievemente convesso e ripiegato sotto l’addome.
Le larve, fitofaghe, vivono prevalentemente su Crucifere e Resedacee e spesso invadono massicciamente le coltivazioni. Le crisalidi sono sospese o cinturate e terminano anteriormente con una prominenza.

Coliadini
La sottofamiglia delle Coliadini è una delle quattro appartenenti alla famiglia delle Pieridi. Comprende circa 15 generi suddivisi in circa 300 specie.

La fotografia
E’ stata scattata con il teleobiettivo 300 mm., con misurazione dell’esposizione spot e regolazione manuale del tempo e del diaframma. Anche in questo caso si tratta di un soggetto maschio, con una bella livrea giallo arancio brillante.
Dopo la Vanessa cardui un’altra specie fotografata su questi astri selvatici (aster diffusus), di cui si può apprezzare l’abbondante fioritura.
In WORKSHOP un crop della stessa immagine, in cui si può vedere con maggiori dettagli la farfalla e la rugiada sui fiori.

Ps. My last posting (a murex shell which I dedicated to Prof. Atatur (matatur)-disappeared from my gallery without any explanation on this from TN.

Ciao Maurizio, bellissima questa farfalla e splendida cornice di margherite.
Bravo!

Hi Maurizio,

I knew when I was in Venice during a heat wave that it was the wrong time of year to visit. Looks like autumn is beautiful there. This butterfly amongst the lovely flowers (daisies?) is as so fresh, clean, and crisp. Have you heard the expression as fresh as a daisy? An exceptionally pretty scene with the Clouded Yellow matching the flowers. Excellent colors, details and composition. A fine close-up in the workshop but it's the beauty of this scene that I love so much.

Bonjour Maurizio,
A regarder tes dernières images on dirait presque le printemps..les couleurs sont si claires! Ces asters semblent attirer bien des papillons, chez nous il y a des sortes mauves qui attendent aussi la visite de ces charmantes créatures. Image très charmante, vraiment.
Bonne journée

Ciao Maurizio,bellissima,coloratissima e giovanissima. Immersa in questo bouquet floreale crea davvero un effetto piacevolissimo,non sto a commentare la qualita' che e' sempre perfetta. Oggi ne ho beccata una anche io,un po' su con l'eta' e quindi meno mobile e piu' facile da avvcinare,la proporro' nei prossimi giorni,anche se il sogno resta di fotografarla con le ali aperte,impresa davvero impossibile.Ciao e complimenti,buon Mercoledi',Luciano

Hello Maurizio
This is really a marvellous capture of this little untiring. How many times I have followed their winding flight waiting for them to stop and let me take a shot, but with no success. Here you captured this beauty in the most beautiful of perches that I can imagine. I don't even know what I like more, the butterfly or the lovely daisies, for I had never seen daisies like those, growing from a twig. Indeed you did a great composition with both of them with a fantastic quality as you ever do.
Congratulations and thank you very much for sharing.
Best regards
Maite

Hello Maurizio,
A delightful portrait of a Clouded Yellow among the daisy flowers and the closer crop in the WS shows that it is nice and sharp. Both images are excellent.
TFS this fine contribution,

Hello Maurizio,
What a wonderful and sunny composition!! I love it, the Clouded yellow looks gorgeous among the multitude of flowers. Great focus on the butterfly and very sharp details. It looks great in the workshop too! Excellent work!
Many thanks and best wishes, Ulla

Hi Maurizio,
This is such a beautiful capture! This flourished environment is beautiful and fits your lovely model very well. Colors, details and exposure look great! I had a look at the picture in WS and I think that it is interesting but I would have composed it a little differently by letting a little more space in front of the butterfly and less behind. Anyway, this is a beautiful post! Thanks,
Claudine

Ciao Maurizio,
What a nice and colorful setting, those flowers look beautiful. I like the position of the butterfly in the composition. Nice details and exposure control.
Grazie e complimenti,
Selen

Aunque la luz no sea una Maravilla, el efecto conseguido por la combinación del insecto con las flores es espectacular.
Gran originalidad y belleza del conjunto.

Hello Maurizio !
I have seen this butterfly several times in my garden, but I never managed to get a picture of hiw which is not blurred - you're so much better than me ! :-) Nice details on the butterfly, wondeful colors, and what I like even more are allthose flowers around the butterfly, sharp in the Fg and blurred in the BG. They are really lovely. Very well done !
Valérie.
