This is my 500th post on TN.I must to say thanks at all for the always kinds words about my pics and for your always lovely friendly!

Class: Insecta

Order: Lepidoptera

(unranked): Rhopalocera

Superfamily: Papilionoidea

Family: Nymphalidae

Subfamily: Heliconiinae

Genus: Heliconius

Species: H. charithonia

Heliconius charithonia,commonly known as the Zebra Longwing or Zebra Heliconian, is a species of butterfly belonging to the subfamily Heliconiinae of the Nymphalidae. It was declared the official butterfly for the state of Florida in the United States in 1996.
The butterfly ranges over parts of North, Central and South America, as well as the Caribbean.In North America the butterfly is found in the southern parts of the United States including Florida, Georgia, North and South Carolina.In South and Central America, it has been recorded in Mexico, Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, Ecuador and Venezuela.
The caterpillar feeds on Yellow Passionflower (Passiflora lutea), Corky-stemmed Passionflower (Passiflora suberosa), and Two-flower Passionflower (Passiflora biflora). The adults are unusual among butterflies in that they eat pollen as well as sip nectar. This ability contributes to their longevity—3 months as an adult.Because of their relatively long lifespan and their activity throughout the day, this is a popular species with butterfly houses. Another unusual feature is that adults roost in groups of up to 70, and return to the same roost each evening.
In some publications the butterfly is referred to as Heliconius charitonius, but this is either a lapsus calami or unjustified emmendation of the original name given by Linnaeus in 1767, Papilio charithonia. Cramer in 1777 was apparently the first to publish this incorrect name. Godman & Salvin in 1901 referred to the species as H. charithonie [sic].

Questo e' il mio 500mo post su TN e intendo ringraziare tutti gli amici che hanno vissuto con me questa fantastica esperienza e che con il loro aiuto e la loro competenza mi hanno aiutato a migliorare...

Charithonia Heliconius, comunemente conosciuta come la Longwing Zebra e Zebra Heliconian, è una specie di farfalle appartenenti al Heliconiinae sottofamiglia delle Nymphalidae. È stata dichiarata la farfalla ufficiale per lo Stato della Florida negli Stati Uniti nel 1996.
Le gamme di farfalla su alcune parti del Nord, Centro e Sud America, così come la Caribbean.In Nord America la farfalla si trova nella parte meridionale degli Stati Uniti tra cui Florida, Georgia, Nord e Sud Carolina.In Sud e America Centrale, è stato registrata in Messico, Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, Ecuador e Venezuela.
Il bruco si nutre di Yellow Passiflora (Passiflora lutea), Corky a gambo Passiflora (Passiflora suberosa), e due di fiori Passiflora (Passiflora biflora). Gli adulti sono inusuali fra farfalle in che mangiano polline e nettare . Questa capacità contribuisce alla loro longevità-3 mesi come adulti.A cusa della loro durata di vita relativamente lunga e la loro attività durante il giorno, questa è una specie popolare. Un'altra caratteristica insolita è che gli adulti si spostino in gruppi fino a 70, e ritornino allo stesso luogo ogni sera.
In alcune pubblicazioni la farfalla è denominata charitonius Heliconius, ma questo può essere un lapsus ingiustificato del nome originale dato da Linneo nel 1767, charithonia Papilio. Cramer nel 1777 fu apparentemente il primo a pubblicare questo nome non corretto.

Una bella Sabato,

Ciao Luciano,
aspettavo con curiosità il tuo commento alla foto di Silvio e poi ne fai solo digressione filosofica, non mi rimane per il mancato nutrimento alla mia curiosità di ripagarti con lo stesso pane e limitarmi a farti 500 grossi complimenti, uno per ogni passo del tuo spedito cammino fotografico. Congratulazioni e grazie mille, due per ogni prezioso cesello della tua galleria.
Ciao Maurizio

Congratulations Luciano, for your 500th posting in TN, a not easy to achieve achievement! you've balanced the faunal and floral elements perfectly in this pleasany composition, by sharply depicting both the veteran butterfly and the fine lantana flowers in sharp focus and good exposure, a superb job indeed my friend.

Ciao Luciano,

Wonderful macro capture from lovely dark butterfly with colorful details! The lantana flower adds great charm to this work.

The colors of the butterfly are very well shown and perfectly natural. The sharpness and POV are great and the contrast between the blurry BG and the beautiful butterfly, is very well done.

best regards,
Paras
