Meadow brown
Arguably the commonest European butterfly. It flies from north Africa into southern Scandinavia. It is often abundant throughout the range and can be found in dry or damp conditions upto moderate altitudes (1500m or so) and in any variety of grassy habitats. In Spain, north Africa and S France the subspecies hispulla flies. This is somewhat brighter orange and has orange markings in the underside hindwing post discal band.

Seara buna Mariana,
din nou un macro splendid. Excelenta prezentare cu niste detalii foarte clare si frumoase.
De top este si BG-ul care il ai.
O seara frumoasa alaturi de al tau Horia,

P.S. Profund impresionat de faptul ca m-ai trecut la favoritii tai. Dupa cite am constatat eu, cel pe TN nu prea sunt asa de multi favoriti ca la TL. Aici oamenii sunt mai .. "girciti" sau mult mai pretentiosi decit ceilalti.
Sper sa mai gasesti multe alte poze frumoase pe galeria mea care sa va placa la amindoi.
