[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Lattice Brown (Kirinia roxelana) is a butterfly of the Nymphalidae family. Wonderful day yesterday for this valuable catch ! This is a beautiful species, large and exotic amongst the European fauna. It is confined to south eastern Europe, principally in Greece, Bulgaria, Serbia... It lives amongst young and/or stunted trees and vineyards where it flits about in the shade settling on the trunks. I had to do some acrobatics to catch this one ! Because of the deep shadow of the tree I had to use flash. The happiness you feel when you find butterfly like this is immeasurable !
