Hello all friends,
exactly one month, I have been away from TN and your posts; since my field works in various parts of Turkiye.
In this period, I took many shots on various plants and animal groups. One of them Argynnis (Fabriciana) adippe (Rottemburg, 1775) - Büyük İnci [TR], High Brown Fritillary [EN] (LEPIDOPTERA: NYMPHALIDAE).

This beautiful butterfly ranges in all Palaeartric Regions, except for its northern parts. In Turkiye, it is found as two subspecies:
A. adippe adippe (Denis et Schitfermüller, 1775): Northern Turkiye (Amasya Ankara, Artvin, Bilecik, Bolu, Bursa, Erzurum, İstanbul, Kastamonu, Kırklareli, Kütahya Rize, Sivas, Sinop, Zonguldak, Ardahan, and Iğdır provinces),
A. adippe taurica Staudinqer, 1878: Southern Turkiye (Adana, Antalya, Hatay, Isparta, Konya, K.Maraş and Mersin, provinces).

It vertically ranges up to 3000 m a.s.l. and it prefers open areas.
Its flight period is June to August.

Lastly, I start to a new trip to NE and E Turkiye and so, I will be away from TN during most of July. I wish you wonderful days and holidays.
Thanks for visiting; see you again

Hi Ahmet,

Welcome back from your travels. It's nice to see you posting again. You return with a very beautiful butterfly posed on a most interesting looking flower. A wonderful position showing off both sides of the wings. The colors and details of the pattern are excellent. I love the background and composition.


Love the spotlight kind of effect here :-) the patterns on the wings and the those spotted eyes are good

Hi Ahmet,

Very cute capture of this little beauty. Very nice focus and great macro. the eye of the butterfly has been captured very nicely.
