Abananote hylonome (Doubleday, 1844)

I apologize in advance for the poor quality of this photo, but I had to make the shot, while running behind the butterfly in the forest. Just found this guy (a male) and no more!

It is a species with no bright colors, without grace while flying, but it is certainly hard to find. Because of this I wanted to add it to my photos in TN.
Thanks by stop and visit!

hello Jesús

the image quality of this photo maybe it is not
as excellent as your other ones but i don't
consider this as poor quality, another of your
excellent butterfly photos, excellent details

Hello Jesús,
Ok the quality is not your best but you show this Heliconiid with fine clarity in a situation that is not ideal. It would still make a fine illustration!
Thanks and have a good weekend,

Ciao Jesus, la qualità èpiù che sufficiente per ammirare la fantastica bellezza diquesta elegantissima farfalla, grazie per avercela proposta, bella nitidezza e ottimi dettagli, altro fantastico esemplare per la tua magnifica collezione, bravissimo, ciao Silvio

Ciao Jesus. Altra bellissima ripresa da un POV difficile. Qualche problema di nitidezza sull'ala destra.


iao Jesus,
altra splendida farfalla dalle sfumature nere in bellissimo contrasto con le zone bianche, ottima nitidezza in una paicevole composizione in cui si possono ammirare bene le ali aperte
Grazie e complimenti
Buen fin de semana
Ciao Maurizio

Hello Jesus,
very special capture of the butterfly that i have never seen before. The wings are well seen against the blurry background. you say it a bit of poor quality, to me it is lovely and the species is more important to be shared.


Esa mariposas son todo un reto para el fotógrafo por su complicado color.
Como la que nos presentaste ayer, bastante conseguida esa dificultad.
Buena disposición, mejor que en Lycaenidae jeje.
El contraste conseguido con el fondo le da un interés especial. Bonito trabajo.
Saludos Jesús: Josep Ignasi.
