[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This butterfly was taken from Dipkarpaz Peninsula of Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus today. I was not sure its species. Now, I am graeteful to Peter Roos (batu), and Ivan Kruys (Argus) that it is labelled as Maniola cypricola Graves, 1928 - Kıbrıs Çayır Esmeri [TR], Cyprus Meadow Brown [EN].
This is an endemic butterfly species to Cyprus.
It is similar to Maniola jurtina - Çayır Esmeri [TR], Meadow Brown [EN] in Western Palaearctic Region.

It looks like the Meadow Brown or Maniolo jurtina found in Britain..it is a widespread butterfly.

Nice image of the creature, good POV .

Hello Ahmet,
there are several very similar species in the genus Maniola. This is a particular one:
- Maniola cypricola
- Nymphalidae / Satyrinae
It's a nice and sharp picture of this species and I woul like to include it into my THEME on Satyrinae which I will create soon. Is that o.k.?
Best wishes, Peter

Hello Ahmet,
Peter is right: this is Maniola cypricola.
Nicely composed with the yellow flower and sharply presented against a fine neutral BG.
Well done, thanks and best wishes,
Ivan

hello Ahmet,
i missed this beautiful Maniola-picture. Interesting subject, because it's an endemic one to Cyprus island. I like the way you managed the light a lot: focused on the flower, giving to the butterfly a very natural look.
Thanks and best regards

Vallahi güzel çekmişsin. Bunu nasılş kaçırdım ben yahu. Hım ben 207 de TN de değildim. Ondandır. Benim çektiğim az hasarlı:) bu tam bir örnek. Bunun üstüne o konurmu bilmem:).
Eline sağlık hacı.
Selamlar.
