[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Melendiz Dağları - Melendiz Mountains
This was taken in Melendiz Mountains near Altunhisar District of Niğde Province. This mountains are covered mainly by steppic vegetation and partly Quercus spp. trees. Its fauna has been not studied very well. My short trips aims to introduce of the vertebrate fauna. I also took some insects photographs like this.
I hope the butterflies in copulation can be identified by you. Many thanks for your advances and helps.

I can't be sure until I go home and check my books tonight but it may be a Meadow Brown butterfly .. I can't remember if the Meadow has that many small spots or not .. but any way you look at it you have a very nice photo here ..

Just make sure you don't show it to the young underage caterpillars .. :)

Hello Ahmet,
This is a nice intimate moment captured. I like this POV and composition. I would be tempted to try to sharpen them a little but it's no big deal. This is a beautiful and original one. Thanks,

Hi Ahmet,
Excellent flagrant!
Very nice colors and POV.
Well done!
My best regard,
José Roberto

Ahmet hocam merhabalar.
A nice spice. I think it's Polyommatus admetus Anomalous Blue.

Sayfaların güncellemesini hafta sonuna kadar tamamlamayı planlıyorum.

Merhaba Ahmet,
Selam!! Good pov with good clarity, coloration and details in it!
good exposure and focus too
thanks for sharing

Hi Ahmet,
A nice capture of these butterflies mating. Nice seen and well timed. Very good details. Sorry not sure about the ID it might be Lime Blue (Chilades laius) or Tiny Grass Blue (Zizula hylax). Any way a beautiful capture. Thanks a lot for sharing.
