Pandora (Pandoriana Pandora)

Phylum: Arthropoda
Subphylum: Mandibulata
Clase: Insecta
Subclase: Holometabola
Orden: Lepidoptera
Suborden: Glossata
Infraorden: Neolepidoptera
Superfamilia: Papilionoidea
Familia: Nymphalidae
Subfamilia: Nymphalinae

Esta mariposa se haya difundida por toda la geografía europea y es bastante frecuente en la Península Ibérica. Vuela durante los meses de julio y agosto, y es posible verla desde el nivel del mar hasta los 1800 metros de altitud.

Por la parte superior, las alas de de los machos son de color naranja rojizo con manchas negras, mientras que las hembras son más pardas, incluso verdosas. Por la cara inferior, las alas anteriores repiten el dibujo de la cara superior, con una mancha amarillenta o verdosa en la región apical y rojo ladrillo o violeta en la base; las alas posteriores son verdes con rayas estrechas plateadas, más perceptibles en las hembras. Este dibujo les proporciona un camuflaje perfecto en el envés de las hojas de los olmos.

Cuando se posa, junta las alas sobre el cuerpo y, normalmente, las posteriores cubren a las anteriores. Se alimenta del néctar de diversas plantas, en especial de las familias Urticaceae y Cornaceae.

Su oruga se alimenta de violetas (Viola odorata, Viola tricolor...)
(Animalandia - Fernando Lisón)

Hola Maite,
Una mariposa muy bonita sobre una bella flor. Me he tomado la libertad de hacerte un WS. Espero que no te importe.
Un saludo, José M.

Hello Maite,
It's always nice to see the Pandora and your presentation of it is sharp and contrasts well with the BG, but I agree with José's cropping.
Thanks, Regards, Ivan

Hi Maite,
Excellent capture with clear details,sharpness and POV.
Well done.
TFS

Hi Maite!
It is my kind of picture with a lot of greenery in the BG :-)!
Lovely shot that presents this butterfly from an effective point of view. One wing is a little blurred, but that does not affect the over-all composition.
Well done and TFS.

Hola Maite, una bella captura, aunque la mariposa no tenga muchos colores, si los tiene el entorno, sobre todo el posadero. Interesante la nota

Hola Maite,
es una bonita fotografía que hicieron con buenos detalles sobre las mariposas y de bonitos colores.
Gracias,
Arnaud.

Hi Maite,

Hello Maite,
A very nice and colourful capture of this butterfly.
A good POV,nice detail and DOF.
Very well done,TFS

Hello Maite,
beautiful presentation of the female Pandora under difficult light conditions. When taking pictures of butterflies, particularly when using autofocus, we all tend to keep the butterfly centered which is not always the best arrangement. José's workshop version has shown the perfect postwork cropping to get a well balanced composition.
Pleasant picture with rich notes. Interesting to read that even this large fritillary feeds on Violets - just as many of its close relatives do. So in fact Pandora may be seen as violetas on wings.
With thanks, and best regards,
Peter

Hola Maite, very beautiful photo of this Pandoriana pandora, good composition and nice colors, ciao Silvio

Hola Maite.
Mi debilidad son las mariposas y cada vez que veo una que no he visto antes aumenta mi admiracion pos estos insectos que siempre estan mostrando que no importa lo que hayamos visto, siempre hay una mas bonita.
Los colores y la entonacion de cafe que tiene esta, junto con las marcas, la hacen una belleza.
Tienes aqui una composicion excelente y el contraste de la mariposa sobre la flor es muy bonito.
Saludos desde Estados Unidos y bienvenida a TN.
Tienes un portafolio con fotos muy bonitas.
Felicitaciones.
JC

Hi Maite.
I like this fire flower and beautiful butterfly on it. Excellent scene, rich contents and nice colour palette. Pose of the butterfly, its wingspread are amazing as well as the composition of the shot. My heart wishes and TFS.
Alexei.
P.S. Was it last uncritiqued by me shot? I'll check this thesis carefully.

Hello Maite. This is gorgeous perch against that yellow flower. Beautiful shot exposing the detail well. Thanks for sharing and best regards. Jusni

Hola Maite,
Wonderful butterfly, great pose, You captured it well. The composition's too centered, but it's quite an old shot, You're doing better now - but as You know, I like to browse Your gallery, even on the oldest pages.
Tfs, regards, László
