Species:H. syriaca

Hipparchia syriaca is found in Croatia, Bosnia, Serbia, Bulgaria, Greece, Turkey, Lebanon, Syria and Iran. It also occurs on several of the Mediterranean islands including Corfu.
This species inhabits clearings and glades in hot dry oak forests and pine woodlands, at elevations between sea level and about 1300m.
The larvae are crepuscular and feed on unspecified grasses.
Males rest on stones, boulders and tree trunks where they wait to intercept passing females. Both sexes visit sap runs.

Ciao Luciano
This is familiar species for me, our Mediterranean coasts. Nice to see it from your shot. Sharp details, lateral POV, gently frame is very nice. Thanks for sharing. Have a nice evening.

Ahh lovely indeed and probably making his last flights by the looks of his tattered wings. Excellent detail and fine capture of a natural habitat

Hello Luciano,
What a beautiful image. Is he trying to camouflage himself here? Well seen and very well captured. A real pleasure to view.

Greece seems to be a great destination for nature photography, Luciano. Looks like you too availed of the opportunity during your recent visit. The picture of this butterfly from Greece is just fabulous.

Ciao Luciano

Hi Luciano,
Another great image of butterfly. Nice colours
good composition and sharpness details.
Regards Jiri.

Hello Luciano
Very well taken picture with good colour and sharpness.
best wishes,

Hi Luciano,

You're capturing well this butterfly by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the butterfly which is stopping on straw of the ground. It has the feather with an interesting mask pattern and brown like protective coloring to the ground.

Kind regards,

Bonjour Luciano,
Une espèce rarement montrée cette Hipparchia vue en Grèce. Un modèle qui a déjà bien vécu à voir sa robe un peu passée..
Cette espèce ressemble beaucoup à notre Hipparchia semele.
Bon après-midi
PS mon mari passe éventuellement la semaine prochaine dans ta région avec sa bicyclette.
Je lui ai dit, s'il a le temps, de s'arrêter dans ton bar:-)
