Come primadel 2009 ho scelto questa, anche se l'ho riproposta da poco, perch una di quelle che mi piacciono di pi come disegno delle ali posteriori
E pare che ho preso anche la prima padella dell'anno:(
Non sono per del tutto convinto anche perch le due si somigliano molto, grazie Ivan, non per mancanza di fiducia ma attendo un altro parere di conferma:)

Famiglia SATIRIDI

Lasiommata megera (Linnaeus 1767) Megera

Ali anteriori 19-25 mm

Farfalla di medie dimensioni, caratterizzata da una livrea arancione con un reticolo di disegni marroni. Le ali anteriori mostrano un grosso ocello apicale con pupilla, le posteriori quattro ocelli posdiscali, anch'essi con punto bianco centrale. Le parti inferiori delle ali anteriori ripetono gli stessi motivi della pagina supero-anteriore, mentre, posteriormente, evidenziano una trama di disegni confusi tra i quali si individua una delicata serie di ocelli cerchiati di bruno.

L'inverno viene trascorso allo stadio larvale. I primi sfarfallamenti avvengono gi nella prima decade di marzo e proseguono con pi generazioni fino a novembre. Il bruco, a vita notturna e di colore verde bluastro con linee longitudinali biancastre, si nutre di diverse Graminacee, come erba mazzolina, fienarola, orzo selvatico ecc.

Presente in Europa (salvo Scozia e gran parte della Scandinavia), Nordafrica, Asia Minore, Russia, Iran. Ovunque in Italia, dal livello del mare ai 1500 m. Nel territorio, tra le specie pi comuni, oltre che di precoce apparizione. Frequenta per lo pi biotopi collinari assolati (strade campestri, margini di bosco, siepi e campagne coltivate).

Hello Silvio !
Your 1st for this new year is a superb shot ! The butterfly in itself is wonderful, I love the eyes and the markings on his wings, and as usual you managed to capture excellent details on the whole butterfly - face, body, wings, antenna... I also like the vivid colors, the splendid composition, the great POV, the wonderful blurred BG. Very well done !
Valerie.

bonjour silvio
le BG est peut etre un peu trop present,f16 etait un peu de trop a mon gout mais le piqu sur le papillon est remarquable.
bonne anne 2009

Hello Silvio,

What a fine photo you have chosen to start year 2009! There is such a fine image showing sharply the pattern of the wings. It the nice light you have captured colors are looking very natural. The blurry background enhaces even mor the feeling of sharpness.

Thank you for sharing,

Ciao Silvietto,hai fatto bene a metterla come prima perche' e' davvero perfetta,non l'ho mai vista e concordo con te sulla particolare bellezza delle ali....ancora buon 2009,Luciano (lorendubois ci ha dedicato la sua foto d'auguri,visto che non sei ancora passato a ringraziare.....passaci ;-)

Beautiful capture to begin 2009 Silvio.
Wonderful colour,detail and composition.
Nice work.
Happy New Year.
Steve

What do you do with all those great images? Do you save them for winter as you seem? This is superior work Silvio. It is almost like some sort of gifted eye went back into your archives and dug out things which you thought maybe didn't work and then they ended up being the best of the crop! Good show..
...and May He Bless You!
Bob

hello Silvio
