Famiglia SATIRIDI

Kanetisa circe (Fabricius 1775) Circe
Ali anteriori 33-36 mm
Vistoso lepidottero (noto anche sotto il nome generico di Brintesia) le cui femmine possono raggiungere un'apertura alare di 80 mm. Superiormente le ali sono brune segnate da una fascia bianca con un ocello apicale cieco sulle anteriori; le parti inferiori mostrano una trama di disegni mimetici e fasce bianche postdiscali molto evidenti. Maschio simile, ma più piccolo. Una sola generazione con larve svernanti e sfarfallamenti in giugno-luglio. Il bruco ha colorazione bruna con numerose fasce longitudinali chiare. Si nutre di erbe con preferenza per Bromus e Lolium.
Si trova dall'Europa occidentale fino all'Himalaya. In tutta l’Italia per lo più a sud della pianura Padana, compresa la Sardegna e la Sicilia ma esclusa l'isola d'Elba. Specie sciafila frequenta i boschi e le radure del piano basale e montano fino a oltre 1600 metri s.l.m. Una sola generazione annuale con sfarfallamento degli adulti da giugno ad agosto.
Piante nutrici
Anthoxanthum odoratum Bromus erectus Brachypodium rupestre Holcus lanatus Festuca sp.

Hello Silvio,
This is an attractive butterfly, and I notice the fine 3-D feeling!
Excellent reproduction of the wing pattern, attractive texture...
A well balanced composition!

Ciao Silvio,
I would like to catch this butterfly for my TN-Theme on Satyrinae. The underside wing pattern is well reproduced - unfortunately K. circe rarely presents its opened wings.
The bright light was obviously difficult - however, you achieved a picture without any over-exposure.
Best wishes, Peter

Very good compo..
Wonderful BG.
Well done overall, Silvio.

Buon giorno Silvio,
brilliantly well lighted image, perfectly composed, taken from a perfect point of view. Apparently cropped from a substantially larger image, but still very clear with good details.
Seeing this species sucking nectar from a flower seems to be a rare observation. And what a beautiful thistle!
Thank you!
Best regards,
Peter

Hello Silvio,

this species are easy to see in the bark of trees, but inusual in flowers.
The composition is superb and the background very pleasant.
The exposition is correct, despite the hard light.
On the down side, I think the photo is a bit over-sharpened in post-procesing.

Best regards,

Javi.
