I could not find any photos of Melanargia parce (Staudinger, 1882) at WWW and so decided to fill this vacuum. This photo was made in Southern Kazakhstan, Boroldaytau Range, Kokbulak Valley.

Witaj w TN Eugene!
Interesujący motyl na początek. Bardzo ciekawy...
Zdjęcie wykonane jest perfekcyjnie: ostrość uchwycona na najważniejszym - głowie i górnych skrzydłach, zrównoważona kompozycja, naturalne delikatne barwy oraz jednolite tło.
Dziękuję, że pokazałeś to zdjęcie i życzę dalszych tak udanych.

Hello Eugene,
this is a phantastic picture of Melanargia parce, a species which is only rarely shown live on photographs.
Focus and sharpness are excellent and the picture is beautifully composed.
Congratulations and thanks for posting this picture.
Best wishes, Peter

P.S. I will include your picture into my Theme on 'Satyrinae - Worldwide'

Hello Eugene
Welcome to TrekNature, and what a beauty of a photo you have for your first posting.
Very good shot of the Melanargia parce. Perfect sharpness, very nice composition, good OOF / out of focus background and nice clear colours too.
Very good job

Hello Eugene,
Welcome on TN!
Your first picture is a very artistic shot of a butterfly we didn't see on TN until now. You have done something for our knowledge and something for our eyes! Excellent composition, good sharpness and very subtle colours. A little jewel.
