Lycaenidae Johnsonita auda

Heavens!... Thanks again to José Roberto (JrobertoP) by the ID! Awesome my Friend, you know a lot!

Really are vere, very Lycaenids in me region. And I have very, very not identified :) Just yesterday, I went out for a while in my garden and I could take photos of two Lycaenids had not seen before!

The Butterfly in my shot of today, could not find in my garden. I remember having found in a clearing in the forest. It is very fast, very restless, but the sun ligth seemed calm enough time for this photo.

**Hand held camera, hard ligth day.

Thanks by stop and visit!

Hello Jesus,
Fantastic sharp detailed photo. Beautiful natural colours. Excellent POV, composition and DOF. Sorry, no idea about the ID.

Hi Jesus,
that's a wonderful coppery butterfly, so beautiful to see the big and glittering wings.
Excellent shot, thanks

My green faces finished today, but I could see this beauty and continue without say anything........
What a great focus and fine details you got here my friend Jesus.
I'd like to know about your distance from the subject in cases like this.
It is so good and have the appearance that is to close.
Congrats my friend,

Ciao Jesus, per l'id non ti posso proprio aiutare, che io non riconosco neanche quelle di casa mia, poi anche questa non l'ho vista mai, bellissima macro, sei proprio bravo, ottimi i dettagli, la nitidezza e la resa dei colori, se da noi continua quasto tempo chiedo rifugio politico in Venezuela, che voglia che ho di farfalle....
Ciao Silvio

Hola Jesús,

Unfortunately I can't help in the ID specification, but I can tell the photo became excellent! Fantastic sharpness / details, beautiful natural colors, well blurred smooth background, gorgeous lights - absolutely great visual impact. Bravo amigo.

Here on TN I saw so many tropical / subtropical butterfly species I haven't seen before, thanx to You and others. I always learn something new here every day. Gracias.

Un saludo, László

Hello Jesus.
A beautiful shot of this Lycaenidae on the leaf. The position of the wings is just right to show the markings. Excellent details and wonderful natural colors. A very pretty scene.
Best regards Siggi

Hola Jesús,
deliciosa captura,
atractivo colorido e iluminación,a pesar que en tu nota dices es era un día de luz fuerte, lo solucionaste muy bien.
estupendo foco...

Vaya conjunto de Lycaenidae nos estás presentando y vaya sana envidia que me das. Te felicito.
Si presentaba mi fotografía como el anuncio de la primavera, hoy ha caído una impresionante nevada en toda mi zona, una situación extraña meteorológicamente hablando y que ha colapsado toda Catalunya en el Noreste Español.
Un abrazo Jesús.

Hello MF Jesus,
Another beauty from your neighbourhood, very well taken, with fine colours and details, great composition.
I could not help you for ID, but on this two sites (second is very low because the thumbnails), maybe you can find some...
LYCAENIDAE of Central America
Butterfliees of America/Lycanidae

Hi jesus,

Stunning macro capture of this trully beauty on a beautiful flower.
The clarity and details are first class, as is the focus and exposure.
TFS and have a nice night MF!

Hola Jesus.
Macro de mucha nitidez y buena iluminacion, contraste entre los colores en donde resalta el color cobrizo de las alas de la Mariposa y la pequeñas franjas en blanco le dan un toque muy bello. Gracias a la calidad de la foto, la Mariposa luce sus atributos.
Saludos Jesus

Great capture this amazing butterfly.
I like the sharp details of the wings!

Hi Jesus

It is a shame we cannot give every creature we shot a name, but it doesn't really matter. It is a great shot of this nameless butterfly. Maybe one day a Sth American expert will join TN and then we will know. Until then just enjoy the beauties that you have in your area. We certainly enjoy looking at them and admiring their beauty. Great composition and sharpness.


Ciao Jesus. Complimenti per l'ennesima ottima macro dove l'incontro di luci colori nitidezza dettaglio e contrasto conferma le tue qualità.

Hello Jesus, great close-up shot with great lighting, excellent composition, details and colours.
TFS and G's,

Hello jesus
great capture of this butterfly, i like his white stripes on his brown wings but also the sharp deails and the pose on a leaf
wonderful color saturation and beautiful sunlight
Have a good night

Olá Jesús.
Ótimo enquadramento; imagem muito bem detalhada!
Fico imensamente feliz por encontrar tantos insetos da ordem Lepidoptera em sua galeria.
Esta é uma rara borboleta da espécie Johnsonita auda (Lycaenidae), certamente a primeira imagem no TN!
