|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|A Rock Ringlet (Hypocysta euphemia), an attractive small butterfly confined to the sandstone forests of southern New South Wales and the granite belt of southern Queensland and northern New South Wales.|
They have a wingspan of nearly 40mm and habitually fly close to the ground in exposed rocky areas, often landing on rock faces and earth embankments.
Here I found an old well-worn specimen that landed on the side wall of a walking track.
Thanks for looking.

Judging by the hindwings, a bird must have found this ringlet so attractive that he took a jab at it, which nicely illustrates one of the functions of the eyespots.
Despite the worn state of this individual, this is a fine capture, sharp and well composed.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

... I discovered a prey for my THEME on 'Satyrinae - Worldwide'. So, thank you for this nice, well-focused and sharp picture of this ringlet. The specimen shows a very dark brown colour. Is this usually the case or is it a kind of subspecific trait in your region?
Best wishes, Peter
This is a very good capture of this butterfly!
Despite their tine size, you got this image with great details, so sharp and clear.
I like the intense and vivid colours on their wings.
You did a pretty good composition with the subject and the rich texture of the ground.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards down under,
Fantastic image of butterfly in a velvet body! It's a pity she is broken...
Thanks for sharing.
tres bonne présentation, le papillon est bon en couleurs et sur ce sol pierreux ca ressort parfaitement
