Hi Jose,
interesting close-up, well detailed, looking quite exotic.
And the species is exotic, indeed. I suppose it is

Cacyreus marshalli (Butler, 1898)

originating from South Africa, and introduced to Southern Spain and the Baleares in 1990s. They came in with Pelargonium plants, and in Europe they also accept Geranium. (Tolman/Lewis: Field Guide Butterflies of Britain & Europe, 1997).

With thanks for this interesting and new to me presentation, and best regards,


P.S.: Sorry, already out of credits for today.

Hi Jose,
Wonderful close-up of this beautiful butterfly and those details on its under wings look superb. Very impressive sharpness and colours with perfect lighting and DOF. Very nicely composed.

Hola José Luis,
Excellente macro de esta pequeña chiquitita, C. marshalli con muchos detalles. La he visto en Lanzarote pero no tengo tan buena foto que esta.
