Lycaenidae Lycaeninae Polyommatini
Cacyreus marshalli (Butler, 1898)
Geranium Bronze


The Geranium Bronze (Cacyreus marshalli) is a butterfly in the family Lycaenidae.

Brown with fine black edge interlaced with white. Very thin tail. Underside:grey brown with dark bands. Caterpillar feeds on cultivated Pelargonium geraniums.

The species is native of South Africa (maybe even Southern Africa). It has, however, been introduced (whether deliberately or accidentally the author does not know) to Mediterranean Europe (initially the Balaeric Islands), where is has spread as a pest of cultivated Pelargonium geraniums, which also originate in South Africa).

Bonjour Sergio,
Je viens de voir ton image. Superbe composition,une lumière douce et un papillon ravissant, de qui faire plaisir aux amateurs de la nature (même si ce papillon est une peste!)Excellent travail de photographe.
Un grand merci

Ciao Sergio. Mi sembra ne avesse postata una Luciano, quella che gli era entrata nel bar.... Molto buona la luce qui che accende i caldi colori della farfallina. Comopimenti per il dettaglio in quanto, credo, di modestissime dimensioni.

Mariana

very good use of light and natural colours with very good output in a beautiful composition
TFS thanks for sharing

Ciao Sergio,
from you another butterfly species that we haven't seen before. A treat! The composition, BG, DOF, sharpness are very good but the picture suffers from low color temperature that is the result of the evening sun. I'm sure you can correct the color temperature in PS to 4'500 K or more. Thanks for presenting Cacyreus to us and for the detailed and informative note.
My best regards to you,
Dietrich

Ciao Sergio, bellissima macro di questa piccola peste che divora tutti i gerani di mia moglie,gradevolissima la composizione, bravo, very well done, ciao Silvio
PS hai notizie dell'acciaccato amico Luciano?
PS PS oggi ti ho dato retta e ho postato il fiore acchiappa farfalle, basta mettersi li vicino ed il bello è che tutte vanno su quello, ignorando gli stessi fiori anche vicini, mah...

La luz destaca en esta bella toma Sergio. Buen encuadre y excelente equilibrio, sin olvidar lo bien captada que está la mariposa. Preciosa.
