Species: I. lathonia

The Queen of Spain Fritillary (Issoria lathonia) is a butterfly of the Nymphalidae family. It is common in southern Europe, migrating as far north as south Scandinavia every summer. It is a very rare visitor to the British Isles. Heat-dependent, this species is found breeding on the hottest places of the foodplants of the larvae (prefers Viola tricolor and Viola arvensis). The adult is a strong flyer, and may be found anywhere but forests.
The eggs of this species are laid on the Wild Pansy ( Viola tricolor).

ISSORIA LATHONIA

La latonia è un piccolo ninfalide dalla colorazione marrone chiaro a sisegni neri simile a molte altre specie della stessa famiglia. Più caratteristiche sono invece le grandi macchie argentate presenti nella pagina inferiore. E' una ottima volatrice e la si può osservare dal livello del mare fino ad oltre 2000 metri di quota.

A unique colour that not seen most, also a hard shot with lot of blooming buds and well composed, sharp focus all well done.

Bonjour Luciano,

Les fleurs et la feuille cadrent bien les insecte. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails du papillon Petit nacré et de l'abeille. La qualité de la lumière embellit les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.

Pierre

Ciao Luciano, sempre uno spettacolo sta farfallina, l'apacchione è un buon bonus, magnifici colori e splendida nitidezza, bravissimo, ciao Silvio
