Large wall brown - Lasiommata maera

Dear friends. I've become a paparazzi photographer, nowadays. I love photographing butterflies on their very special moment. Since we do not come across this event frequently, it interests me. At the same time, for a nature photographer, seeing both female and male of the same species is exciting. I took this photo in a different place than previous one, at a cave entrance in Keles. I wish background was full of flowers. However, they were on a rock, there was nothing else to do. We cannot do what we want in nature everytime.

I think this one must be a Large wall brown (Lasiommata maera) unlike my previous butterfly. Because there it appears some differences in favor of L.maera. But probably I'm wrong, I'm not an expert of butterflies.

Family: Satyridae
Flight Time: March - November (in Türkiye)
Size: 44-56mm
Altitude: 0-2000m
Habitat: Rocky places
Living Zone: All regions of Türkiye.
Feeding Plants: Several grass like Poa, Dactylis, and Festuca specieses.

Have a great weekend.
Some infos was taken from book Türkiye'nin Kelebekleri (Butterflies of Türkiye) by Prof. Dr. Ahmet BAYTAS.

Merhaba Fevzi,

Iyi geceler,

Merhaba Fevzi bey,

Best regards, László

Hi Fevzi,
Well, this really hard! ... I would not know how to comment on this photo, are like "butterflies on the rocks".... impressive, the picture is full of atmosphere, is eloquent, is visually appropriate ... very good work, is made by combining photographic instinct and very good technique.
TFS, regards from Venezuela.

Hah:))) beklenen kare geldi:) Nefis bir eşleşme karesi:)
Hep düşünürüm de; ilişkiler için söylenen klasik bir deyiş vardır bilirsin:): el ele ... diye başlar devam eder.
Bunlar dikkatini çektimi bilmem 2 aşamayı (etli ve kıçlı olanı) aynı anda yaşıyorlar:) Yaşamlarının kısalığından olsa gerek:)
Eline sağlık dostum. Enfes bir çalışma olmuş.
Emeklerine sağlık.
Keyifli bir hafta sonu dileklerimle...


Hi Fevzi

Salam Akhi Fevzi,
What an excellent view indeed. You have successfully captured at the very right moment.
The golden yellow rings are really stunning and the shiny wing give an exciting view. you have really skillfully composed the shot in the best way.
The dark blurry background is so smooth that it makes the capture even better.

Hello Fevzi!

What a beautifull picture! Butterflies are great with perfect sharpness and very catchy patterns on wings. Light and mix of colours on FG and BG look excellent. I like it very much!
