Marbled White
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Marbled White (Melanargia galathea) is a butterfly in the family Nymphalidae. Found across most of Europe (not Scandinavia), north Africa, and as far east as Iran, the late twentieth century has seen an expansion of its range in the UK.
Despite its common name, this butterfly is one of the "browns", of the subfamily Satyrinae. They are a common sight in unimproved grasslands across southern Britain, particularly on the South Downs.
Like other members of its subfamily, the larvae feed on various grasses. The full range is unknown, but it is thought that Red Fescue Festuca rubra is essential in their diet. Eggs are laid on the wing, or from brief perches on grass stems, and are just sprinkled among the grass stems. Upon hatching, the larvae immediately enter hibernation, and only feed the following spring when the fresh growth occurs. They are a lime green colour, with a dark green line running down the middle of their back. Pupation takes place at ground level in a loose cocoon. Adults emerge in July, and, on a good site, in warm, sunny weather, thousands can be seen gently fluttering amongst the grass heads.
Another nickname for the Marbled White butterfly is the "Marmoress."

Hello Jacqueline,
A very nice macro of a male M. galathea taken from an excellent POV to show it with its slightly open wings with fine sharpness, DOF and set in a pleadsing composition on the Scabious flower against a contrasting OOF natural BG.
Pity we don't have this species in Sweden!
Thanks and have a nice evening,

Hello Jacqueline, wonderful close-up shot of this beautiful butterfly with nice composition and POV.
TFS and G's,

Excelente el enfoque, la luz y la coposición. Bien desenfocado el fondo aunque con algo de ruido electrónico. Te recomiendo , al menos este programa uso yo, "neatimage" ya que en pocos segundos transformas una foto.
Un abrazo Jacqueline: Josep Ignasi.

Nice details and DOF Jacqueline, beautiful butterfly :)
Have a great Sunday!

I am very pleased with you visit and nice greeting words as well as with watching your new shot. Butterfly and flower create an amazing, elegant composition.

Hi Jacqueline,

Good lighting and nice out of focus background that makes the butterfly so outstanding.


Bonjour Jacqueline,
Ce joli papillon si bien capturé est un demi-deuil ou melanargia galathéa.
il aime particulièrement le jolies fleurs de chardon.
Joli mélange de couleurs, bonne profondeur pour rehausser à l'image de l'insecte... bonne perspective aussi.
Bien fait !

Hello Jaqueline,
A fine capture of this beautiful butterfly with half-open wings and from a very nice low POV. The strong light on the wings make them look almost transparent.

Salut Jacqueline
Une tres jolie composition que j'avais manqué Belle image bien présenté avec un bon PDV,de plus l'image est bien en focus et l'arriere plan est également bien réussie.
Merci Michel

Bonjour Jacqueline.

Félicitations pour cette belle photographie de papillon. Belle composition, belle netteté et profondeur de champ sur l'ensemble des sujets. Les couleurs du papillon sont très bien rendues. Juste, avec votre permission, un petit regret, concernant le sommet de la scabieuse, que je trouve un peu surexposé et dont les détails sont peu perceptibles. Avec votre autorisation et sans prétention de ma part, je vous suggère une autre vision de votre photographie.


Bonne journée.

Hello Jaqueline
elegant macro composition with beautiful Melanargia Galathea on delicate flower with fine details and colors. Great light management.

Hi Jacqueline,
Great composition, but the photo became a bit too bright - probably 1/320 was too slow, and there's too much background noise. But (and here come the good news) composition itself is beautiful, sharpness and details on the b-fly are excellent and above all, a heartfelt dedication to Horia. I was lamentating a bit about giving one or two points, but decided to give 2, because there are more positive aspects. With the right exposure and less noisy background I'd easily say this is a masterpiece.
Tfs, best regards, László
