To celebrate my 800th post I chose the Lathonia, my favorite butterfly, fresh catch.

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).

ISSORIA LATHONIA
Per celebrare il mio 800esimo post ho scelto la Lathonia,la mia farfalla preferita,fresca di cattura.
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.

Bonjour Luciano,

Bravo pour ta 800ième photo sur TN, la fleur aide au cadrage du papillon. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs du papillon Petit nacré. La lumière de l'après-midi et la lumière du flash ont un bel effet sur les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.
