[Notas - Normas] Nota do Artista
Back in my country with a rare species that i haven't seen many times...

Class: Insecta
Order: Lepidoptera
Suborder:Glossata
Superfamily:Papilionoidea
Family: Nymphalidae
Subfamily:Satyrinae
Genus: Brintesia
Species:B. circe

Brintesia is a monotypic butterfly genus in the family Nymphalidae and subfamily Satyrinae. Its one species is Brintesia circe, the great banded grayling.Brintesia circe reaches on average wingspan of 65–80 millimetres (2.6–3.1 in). Its wings are mainly black or dark brown. They have a broad white band at the edge of the basal area of all wings and usually a second white streak on the lower wings. The black eyespots on the underside of the upper wings have a white contour. Brintesia circe is quite similar to Hipparchia fagi, but in the latter the second white streak on the lower wings is always missing and the eyespots havea yellow contour. These butterflies usually rest on the branches of a tree, protected by their cryptic markings, but ready to take off and fly away when disturbed.These butterflies fly in one generation from June to September feeding on nectar of flowers. Larvae feed on various herbaceous plants (mainly on Anthoxanthum, Bromus, Festuca and Sesleria species). The young larvae overwinter.The species can be found in central and southern Europe (Spain, France, Italy, Greece, southern Germany and Poland), in Anatolia and the Caucasus up to Iran.These butterflies prefer light woodland, grasslands bordering forest edges and generally dry and bushy environments, at an altitude of 0–1,600 metres (0–5,249 ft) above sea level.

Hello Luciano,
Wonderful close-up image of the Great Banded Grayling. Appears it was perched very low to the ground in a resting pose. Sharply focused and beautifully marked, I'm glad you were able to photograph this rare species to your country.
Ron

Hello Luciano,
Nice butterfly with those brown-grey colors. Difficult POV in the grass.
Marius.

Ciao Luciano, ultimamente si è vista poco anche dalle mie parti, gran macro, ottima nitidezza e magnifici dettagli, bravo, ciao Silvio

Ciao Luciano
Great capture of this beautiful butterfly indeed. Great details in the wings. Sadly many species of butterfly are becoming more and more rare in our parts, so good luck you where able to get this shot of it.
have a great day
Daniel

Hi Luciano,
I appreciate this picture because Brintesia are nervous animals, it's difficult to focus on them, more difficult to compose a picture. You did it, praise on you. I like your careful comments.
You also presented many pictures from Georgia which I have visited twice as a bicyclist. To get the good pictures of Lycaenidae and Co. you must have carried heavy equipment along.
Thanks for your comments on my pictures, my best regards, Dietrich

Bonjour Luciano,

Le cadrage serré met le papillon en évidence. La prise de vue rapprochée permet de voir les détails du papillon Silène. La bonne luminosité donne de belles teintes aux couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.
