Sub-family Satyrinae

Hello friends!

Here we have a huge number of butterflies belonging to this family, but many of them make me difficult to classify because of the similarity of the marks on the wings. Butterfly in the photo, I have not found the ID, but this butterfly served to further experiment with RAW format on my old Olympus camera bridge.



Kingdom: Animalia
Phylum: Arthropoda
Class: Insecta
Order: Lepidoptera
(unranked): Rhopalocera
Superfamily: Papilionoidea
Family: Nymphalidae
Subfamily: Satyrinae
Tribe: Satyrini

Hello Jesus,

an nice close up from this butterfly with good of sharpness and pov.
Nice blurred bg.
Fine colors.


Hello jesus,
A superb macro shot of this butterfly captured with outstanding sharpness, fine details and marvellous natural colours. I also like the composition and POV. Well done!

A marvellous composition with the Satyrinae perched on a yellow wild flower, Jesus.
I too shot a butterfly of this family in the Himalayas recently.
However, your picture is far superior in terms of technical aspects and overall aesthetic appeal. Those ringlets on the wings are simply mind blowing.
Thanks and regards.

Superb photo, excellently composed, good details and a most beautiful butterfly. regards yiannis

Ciao Jesus. Ottimo il dettaglio un po' meno la nitidezza. Grande difficoltà del POV. Bianco e giallo sparati. Una specie nuova e interessante.


Ciao Jesus, quante belle farfalle nel tuo paese, prima o poi ci vengo a far foto, splendido esemplare megnificamente ripreso con ottimi detagli, splendida nitidezza e bei colori naturali, bravissimo, buon week end, ciao Silvio

Ciao Jesus, grande scatto e splendida farfalla. Molto buono lo sharpness generale dell'immagine. Un caro saluto, Paolo

Ciao Jesus,
un'altra meraigliosa farfalla, in questo caso con una spettacolare serie di ocelli, ottima nitidezza e magnifici colori naturali, bellissima composizione con il fiore, leggermente disturbata sullo sfondo.
Grazie e complimenti
Buon fine di settimana
Ciao Maurizio

Hello Jesus,
Excellent sharp detailed photo of this butterfly in beautiful natural colours. Great POV and composition. Nice OOF BG.

Beautiful photo Jesus!! Excellent composition, wonderful colours and impressive sharpness.

hello Jesus
great sharpness composition of this beauty butterfly
very good light and beautiful colours
thanks greeting lou

be..a..u..tiful .... capture with good depth of field and fine moderate sharpness, friend Jesus. Those terrible branches at the background did not become an obstacle for you and you did your best here under the current circumstances !
Now let me discourage you to bye this little Canon PowerShot G12! Make no mistake it is the best compact camera currently available but the result from its tiny sensor will not be dramatically different from the camera you are using now .... so I honestly do not see this step as an upgrade! Have a look the 4/3 again.... please, see the Sony Alpha NEX-3 or some of those Panasonic's and Olimpuses with larger sensors!
