Order: Lepidoptera

Superfamily: Papilionoidea

Family: Nymphalidae

Genus: Issoria

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).

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.

Hello Luciano,
Excellent photo in splendid bright colours and superb sharpness. Taken from a very good POV. Beautiful dark OOF BG.

Peter

Ciao Luciano,
un bel colpo e una primizia direi,
eccellente qualità fotografica dal dettaglio, nitidezza e resa dei colori,
anche le macchie argentate sono simili alla realtà cosa non facile perché in digitale risulterebbero di color grigio scuro
...che dire bravo e complimenti anche oggi ;-)

Buona serata
Davide

Ciao Luciano. Per palati fini la Latonia di quest'oggi. Profondità di campo paurosa e dettaglio al limite della rasoiata. Colori splendidi e gran luce. Ho fatto un giro anche io e mi stavo ingrifando... per via del vento. Poi è cessato all'improvviso e una campetto di quadrigfoglio si è trasformato in un cuccagna con M. Didima e Phoebe nonchè A. Crategi a volontà.

Roberto

Excellent portrait, superb details and colours. regards yiannis

Ciao Vanni

Veo que ya escribes algo en Catalán... eso me gusta amigo.

Tu foto preciosa. La luz es desbordante y aún así conseguiste
dominarla, ya que no hay ninguna zona sobre-expuesta.
Buen enfoque y colores... de lujo.

Hi Luciano.
My congratulations on brilliant picture of a wonderful butterfly. All is fantastic: POV and composition, colours and lights, texture reproduction and so on. Bravo. Outstanding work.
Alexei.

Ciao Luciano,
La farfalla ed i suoi arancioni-bianco-nero stà benissimo con lo sfondo scuro e grande gusto nell' enfatizzare il tutto con una cornice che richiama il grigio. Insomma, che dire, la foto è fantastica proprio come la nitidezza d'insieme.
Complimenti
Manuel

Bonjour Luciano,
Parfait vraiment! Et un arrière-plan de couleur idéale pour mettre en valeur cette beauté de papillon. Mais qu'est-ce qu'il a sur ses jambes? On dirait des petits bijoux assortis à ses taches blanches...
Bonne journée
Amitiés
Anne
