BURNET COMPANION (Euclidia glyphica)
(Linnaeus, 1758)

Wingspan 25-30 mm.

One of the few day-flying moths, this species gets its English name from the fact that it is often found in company with Burnet moths (Zygaena sp).

It inhabits open woodland, pastures and downland, and the larvae feed on clover (Trifolium) and trefoil (Lotus).

Here both sides of the same specimen.

I hope you like it.
Thank you very much for your visit.

This is such an unusual and very artistic presentation. It far out surpasses others in supermarkets...It is SUPER! Simple frames does not mean leaving out valuable information and the creative work you put into focusing really well on the subject...VERY neat!

Hi Maite,
Wonderful shot of this beautiful butterfly with very impressive sharpness, colours and markings on its wings. Great idea to show the inset image with the other side of the wings. Excellent DOF, POV and composition.

Hi Maite.
Simply amazing picture of this beautiful moth. You managed to represent it by the best way. Great POV, impressive scene at whole and wingspread of the insect, wonderful lighting and vivid colours. Small image in the top right corner is sweet and supplements the main shot very well. My compliments and thanks for visit and sharing your new work.

Hello Maite,
Interesting posting of Euclidia glyphica shown with both wingsides. I see this moth often on a meadow where I also saw some Zygaenae-species, what confirms your note.( I didn't know that this moth is also called Burnet Companion).
Bon aprčs-midi

Hello Maite,
Beautiful sharp-detailed photo in great colours. For me the image in the upper right corner is a bit distracting. Why not two separated photo's? Both are good enough for a separated presentation, but that's personal.
Excellent DOF and BG.

Hi Maite. Long time no see. This is a fine close up of the Burnet. Which you have taken with fine detail and natural colours. A nice top POV. I like the small picture in the corner of the underside. well done TFS.

Hola Maite!
Nice capture of moth species which was not known for me before. I like that you presented it from 2 different sides.
Note is short, but informative :)
Greetings from Lodz,

Buen trabajo y además muy bien presentado Maite.
No son fáciles estas puńeteras polillas pero la has enfocado de primera como evidencian esas texturas tan bien captadas.

Merhaba Maite,
Muhteşem yeşil bir fon önünde tüm ayrıntıları ve güzellikleri sergilenmiş bir kelebek karesi sunmuşsun. Detaylar gözalıcı. Tebrik ediyorum.


Well done, Maite.
The colors of a moth are often more delicate than these of a butterfly.
This is such a beauty. A lot of info through the fact that you were able to photograph both sides.

Hello Maite, a fine presentation! Nice close-up of this moth. Sharp and clear with a good background. Thanks!


Very nice Maite,
This is an excellent presentation, showing both the top & underside in an artful manner :)
Have a great day,

That means you took two separate shots front and back while the Moth perched at the same spot, Maite? Very thoughtful of you; most of us could end doing the upper wings only.
Excellent shot with lovely details and colours on the subject against a pleasant plain green BG.
Well done and TFS.

Hi dear Maite again,
Another very interesting and well done shot in Your "moth series". Great exposure and PP-work, splendid macro. Congrats and tfs.
Best wishes, László

Hello Maite,
Why did I miss this fine posting?
This is a great portrait of E. glyphica taken from a great POV with fine sharpness and set in a fine composition with a clean uncluttered BG. The inclusion of a view of the underside is a nice bonus too in this well presented image.
Thanks and best wishes,

Hello Maite
Very nice composed pictures. Nice colours, sharp edges, just great ;-)
