Actinote anteas (Doubleday, [1847])

Hello friends!

The background of this photo is quite distracting, but this butterfly appears only a few days every year in my garden, and then I think is mandatory take at least one picture!

This is a butterfly with a flight "gangly" and sits awkwardly on the flowers, always "walking slow on the flower" while sipping the nectar. It is not a beautiful butterfly of course, but she has a special charm, she inspire "very laziness"! :)

Hello Jesus,
Another interesting butterfly presented with a beautiful picture, well framed to avoid the distracting background and with fine natural colors. I think that this is a beautiful butterfly and I don't understand your negative judgment. But beauty is such a relative concept!
Well done again
Kind regards

Veo que entraste a "husmear" mi galería. Quiero agradecete tu sinceridad en los comentarios. Cree
que me ayudan... otra cosa es que haga caso de ellos o sepa llevarlos a cabo :o) Me encanta que me
corrijan, sobre todo si como tú, estas correcciones son acertadas.
Esta que nos presentas destaca a primera vista por la buena y fina combinación de colores amarillo-negro.
El formato y el encuadre de libro y la especie, pues eso, otra joya de tu tierra.
Saludos Jesús: Josep Ignasi.
