Class: Insecta

Order: Lepidoptera

Superfamily: Papilionoidea

Family: Nymphalidae

Genus: Issoria

Species: I. lathonia

The Queen of Spain Fritillary (Issoria lathonia) is a butterfly of the Nymphalidae family. It is common in southern Europe, migrating as far north as south Scandinavia every summer. It is a very rare visitor to the British Isles. Heat-dependent, this species is found breeding on the hottest places of the foodplants of the larvae (prefers Viola tricolor and Viola arvensis). The adult is a strong flyer, and may be found anywhere but forests.
The eggs of this species are laid on the Wild Pansy ( Viola tricolor).

La latonia è un piccolo ninfalide dalla colorazione marrone chiaro a sisegni neri simile a molte altre specie della stessa famiglia. Più caratteristiche sono invece le grandi macchie argentate presenti nella pagina inferiore. E' una ottima volatrice e la si può osservare dal livello del mare fino ad oltre 2000 metri di quota.

Hello Luciano,
I saw I. lathonia a couple of days ago near my home and I took a shot of it that I might post later, but now it is too cold for them here.
This is a superb capture while it is feeding on the composite flower with the wings open. The sharpness is perfect and it contrasts well against the dark BG.
Well done and thanks neighbour!
Ciao,
Ivan

Hello Luciano.
This is a very well composed photo, which has great sharpness and colors.
I like very much the yellow flower on which the butterly rests, and the black BG.
Best regards Siggi

Hi Luciano,


an nice macro shot from this beautiful butterfly.
Good pov and detals, exellent sharpness and fine colours.

Azz Luciano! Mi hai anticipato ma credimi ne sono felice. Oggi, con mia grande sorpresa, ne ho beccata una. Beh domani te la dedico. MI sono altresì divertito con i milioni di icaurs che stanno girando questi giorni. Ho provato a giocare con diaframmi, flash e time shot e credo di aver quagliato qualcosa oltre a una merea di porcherie. Vedremo..... Fantastica luce per la tua Issoria in pregevole dettaglio e ottimi colori.

Roberto

hello Luciano
very good picture with great sharpness and beautiful colours

Surprise? Isn't your part of Italy a miler climate. It is certainly posed well. I have added it to the theme I named after all of Silvio's yellow shots a year or two back.
Bob

A stunning shot, Luciano!
Very well chosen POV and I simply love the black BG!
Bravo!
Goldy

ciao luciano

è bello incontrare anche te e come silvio vedo che non ti fai mancare le immagini degli abitanti di ambienti bucolici, l'immagine è splendidamente ripresa e splendidamente inquadrata.
mi sa che dovrò rivedere il mio corredo fotografico se voglio raggiungere un qualche risultato

buona giornata

Ciao Luciano, con questa foto siamo tornati anche per te ai vecchi altissimi standard. Splendida farfalla ripresa perfettamente e con parametri perfetti da qualsiasi punto di vista. Una grandissima immagine. Un saluto, Paolo

Ciao Luciano,
Mamma mia, 1/4000s ed è l'uso del flash! ... Cado seduto! ... bravo ... Vado a vedere se la mia Olympus Bridge può fare qualcosa di simile! ... Credo di no! :)
Saluti, Grazie per la condivisione (E di apprendimento).

Bonjour Luciano,
Je vois que tu essaies maintenant de photographier avec des vitesses vertigineuses et le flash..pas une mauvaise idée à voir le résultat! Très belle Issoria parfaitement présentée, un vrai petit tableau de la nature.
Bonne fin de semine où que tu te trouves!
Amitiés

Ciao Luciano!
Bella farfalla, ripresa e presentata in modo eccellente. Ottimo il POV a la luce...sembra la farfalla stessa una fonte di luce.
Splendido contrasto con lo sfondo scuro e bella la cornicetta gialla che richiama il colore della farfalla.
Complimenti caro Luciano!
ciao e buona settimana.

J'ai adoré, quelle beauté!! Bravo!

Hi Luciano. The light is so beautiful in this shot. It looks like the it is being penetrated through the wings. Beautiful markings in full spread. Well done and best regards. Jusni

Bonsoir Luciano,

Le papillon est bien placé dans le cadrage. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs du papillon Petit Nacré. La bonne luminosité fait ressortir les couleurs. Bonne soirée.
