Evening Brown Butterfly - Melanitis leda bankia
FAMILY NYMPHALIDAE
The Evening Brown butterflies can be seen flying in the bush during evening before complete darkness. They are common in Brisbane. In the day time they rest on the ground amongst dry leaves, and can hardly be seen unless disturbed. They become active in the late afternoon. During the day when we passing through dense vegetations, if there are some large brown insects flying away and rest a few meters away, most likely they are the Evening Brown butterflies.
The butterflies are brown in colour and looks like a dead leaf. The underside wings are marked with the eyespots pattern, which confuse the predators not to attack the butterfly body. This butterfly has two colour forms. In winter they have less eyespots pattern on the bottom side of their wings and darker in colour.

The butterflies lay their eggs on the leaf of tall grass, which is the food of their caterpillars. They feed on different types of grass, including Kangaroo Grass Themeda australis and rice plants. They are pest to the rice farmer.

Hello Foozi,
A very nice capture of an Evening Brown, the use of flash illuminating the butterfly without giving the night-time (just evening:)) effect and the sharpness and composition with the Rhodo leaves are excellent.
Thanks and all the best,
Ivan

Bonsoir Foozi
Une merveilleuse photo que ce Joli papillon,Très belle composition, les couleurs et le cadrage et les détails sont tous très bons.Très beau BG
Bravo et merci...JP

Salam Bro.

I noticed that you have subdued the color of your posts recently and all that turned out for the better. Details and shine on the brown's wing is amazing and the shallow focus helps to pop out the subject in the frame. Very nice upside-down framing on this plant that leaves deep coloration on your tongue.

Top drawer work and should be in the coffee-table book.

Regards,
Jusni

Hi Foozi,

A good capture of the Evening Brown butterfly on the leave. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the insect. The leaves are framing well the butterfly. The morning light is enhancing the colors. have a nice day.

Hi Foozi,
Outstanding shot of this beautiful Evening Brown in an upside-down posture. Very neat and sharp image with lovely colours and perfect use of flash lighting. It stands out well from the darkish BG. Superb composition. Kudos.
TFS.

Hello Foozi,

The delicate texture of the wing is well captured, and the fake eyes make a fine pattern!
Good colour reproduction in both butterfly and leaves, the flash gives a fine addition of light...
Good framing and sharp details!
