Vanessa cardui (Linnaeus,1758) [in Turk. Diken Kelebeği/ Boyalı Güzel] [Eng. Painted Lady]

Tüm Kuzey yarımkürede, Afrika'da ve Avustralya'da görülür. Mart - kasım arası tüm sezon uçarlar 3-4 nesil oluşturabilirler. Tırtılları; Cucurbitaceae, Asteraceae, Fabaceae, Vitaceae, Malvaceae, Brassicaceae, Boraginaceae türlerinin yaprakları ile beslenir. Türlerinin çoğunda kanat kenarları oldukça keskin girintili çıkıntılıdır. Hakim renk turuncudur. Üst kanat uçları siyah zemin üzerinde beyaz, diğer kısımlar koyu kahverengi beneklidir. Üst ve alt kanat kenarları koyu renk şeritlidir, alt kanatlarda alt alta noktalar mevcuttur. Ayrıca alt ve üst kanatların gövde civarı kıllı ve düz yeşilimsi renklidir. Arka yüzde üst kanatlar turuncu, siyah ve beyaz desenli, alt kanatlarsa açık kahverengi ebru desenli ve alt alta mavi beneklidir. Bunlar ayrıca büyük sürüler halinde, kuzeyden güneye göç eden kelebeklerdir. Kışın güneşli günlerinde de görülebilirler. Erginleri her tür süs ve yabani bitkilere konar. Haziran ayında Hayıt çiçeklerini adeta istila ederler.Kanat genişliği: 54 mm'dir. Yumurtalarını tek tek ve farklı yerlere bırakırlar. (http://www.ozgurdoga.net/aciklama/CynthiaCardui.htm)

Eng. Vanessa cardui is a well-known colourful butterfly, known as the Painted Lady, or in North America as the Cosmopolitan. This butterfly has a strange pattern of flying in a sort of screw shape. Vanessa cardui occurs in any temperate zone, including mountains in the tropics. The species is resident only in warmer areas, but migrates in spring, and sometimes again in autumn. For example, it migrates from North Africa and the Mediterranean to Britain in May and June, but having produced offspring they then die in the Autumn. The egg takes 3 to 5 days to hatch. The eggs are tiny, as tiny as a sugar crystal. They are green and can be observed best with a magnifying glass. The caterpillar takes 7–11 days to turn into a chrysalis. At this stage the caterpillar eats a great deal of mallow and other types of plants. Before entering its chrysalis, the caterpillar will moult several times because of how quickly it grows in such a short period of time. The moult appears as a black speck, what looks like dirt, near the caterpillar. Many people believe this to be the excretion of the caterpillar, but it is truly the moult (the skin the caterpillar has grown out of). It takes 7–11 days for the chrysalis to turn into a butterfly. The painted lady butterfly travels around 1000 miles in its life. Its wing span is 2 inches. The painted lady caterpillar is black with spiked skin. (en.wikipedia)

Merhaba Mehmet,
very well captured top view of this butterfly.Very sharp and very clear view of the markings.

Hello Mehmet,
Great details and superb focus.
Excellent contrast, clarity and sharpness.
Marius.

kışın başladığı şu günlerde pek az kelebek kaldı. haftasonu Sultanları gördüm ve özellikle diken kelebeği. kışın güzel güneşli günlerinde bile çıkıp uçuyorlar.
size de güzel poz vermiş, Mehmet Bey. netliği yanında, ışığı renkleri ve çiçekli fonu çok güzel olmuş. elinize sağlık.
iyi geceler, selamlar.
