bonjour josé ramon
je ne connait pas non plus le nom de ce papillon mais ce serait difficile de ne pas l'apprecier car il est vraiment tres bien presenté.

Même les antennes sont nettes ! bravo !
Bonne journée.

Hi Jose,

Hi Jose

A wonderful macro shot of a splendid butterfly sitting on a delicate and charming flower.
The side POV here is excellent for this type of shot and the DOF you used is impeccable - it kept the subject in great focus and blurred the BG superbly!
The details are also terrific and crispy clear and all the colors are lovely and well saturated! I especially like the well visible textures and hairs on its head and near the eyes.

Bravo and TFS

Hello Jose
Very nice shot of this wonderful Butterfly,
Perfect lighting and details,
Fantastic colors and DOF,
Superb shot.


No es una fotografía más, es una belleza. Perfecto equilibrio. Buena iluminación.
Saludos, JL.

That is one of the numerous species of a Skipper, Jose, as its features and colours suggest.
A beautiful composition with that lovely, well-shaped flower and the Skipper perched on it daintily.

A perfect arrangmenet, Jose,
so many tiny hairs on that beauty and the flower is so pretty.
Thanks, very well done.

Hola Jose,
the flower and the butterfly are nicely captured. Species identity:
- Coenonympha pamphilus
- family: Namphalidae
- subfamily: Satyrinae
Exceptionally, your specimen shows a double eye-spot on the forewing underside.
Best wishes, Peter

Hi Jose

I like this pic of A Small Heat Butterfly or as Batu says..
Coenonympha pamphilus.

We have it in Northern UK also.

Regards Mike.
