Satyrium ilicis (Ilex Hairstreak) [in Turk. Büyük Sevbeni]

A local and rare butterfly species which I’ve observed firstly during our Mediterranean Region trip in Doglu Village (Erdemli, Mersin). I encountered a big colony on the Rock Roses (Cistus creticus) near Akhisar town (Manisa province) during my last trip on the way of Balıkesir province. I also attached a WS showing a single:) hairstreak a bit closer in, increasing the DOF with smaller aperture (f/16)!

TFL and Have a nice Sunday!
Cheers,

*****************************

Ilex Hairstreak (IH) is a relatively medium-sized butterfly with a wingspan of 32-36 mm. IH is one a few quite similar species in Turkey. You may also see the Satyrium myrtale in E Anatolia, Satyrium spini in most parts of Turkey (Except Aegean Region), Satyrium ledereri in most parts of Turkey (Except Turkish Thrace and W Anatolia) and Satyrium hyrcanium having a narrow distribution area in NE Anatolia (Bayburt, Artvin, Kars and Iğdır). However, the IH is different from the others by lack of sex-brand on upperside of forewings in males and the presence of the orange lunules on the hindwing underside bordered black on the outside.

It is found in Europe, S Fennoscandia, Turkey, Lebanon, Israel, W & S Urals, and NW Asia. The adult butterflies fly in one generation (i.e. univoltine) from late May to early August according to altitude. The larval host-plants are Quercus (oaks) and Ulmus (elms) species. Eggs laid near dormant leaf-buds. Hibernates as an egg. Caterpillars attended by some ants belonging to the genera of Camponotus (carpenter ants) and Crematogaster (acrobat ants). It is observed in hot, dry oak scrubs; damp/dry heaths and forest clearings up to around 1600. The adult butterflies generally prefer the flowers of Thymus (thymes) and Sambucus (elderberries).

Ciao Bayram, wonderful couple of lovely little butterflies on a fantastic flower, great natural colors, splendid sharpness and superb details, very well done my friend, have a good Sunday, ciao Silvio

Excellent shot Bayram. Very nice composition.. They both look pretty..
TFS.
Kind regards,
Leyla

Hellow Bayram,
Spot on exposure and your shallow depth of field has created a two layered image with the brightly coloured flower and dark coloured butterflies against the OOF back ground showing an impressive image in that the main subject is nicely enhanced and well composed.
erwin...

Oooohhh, Bayram, that's a wonderful moment - to see two on one flower, fantastic.
There's an explosion of colours in your shot and I'm in a good mood right now ;-)
Beautiful glance on the wings, thanks, I like it so much

Hallo MF Bayram,
a splendid double capture of the Ilex Hairstreak, very good sharpness and brilliant colours, excellent POV and composition
TFS
Best regards

Hello MF Bayram
bellissima coppia di Satyrium dai colori molto brillanti e delicati che ottimamente contrastano con le tonalità più vivide del fiore su cui sono posate. La messa a fuoco è impeccabile mettendo così ben in risalto i dettagli e le diverse tonalità che attraversano le ali. Ottima gestione della luce.
Livio

hello Bayram

very beautifullly composed photo of these butterflies
over their flower, fine POV, DOF and the way diagonally
they are framed, fine focus excellent sharpness details,
beautiful luminosity and colour tones, TFS

Asbed

Not an easy task to keep two small subject in focus I think, Bayram but you did it successfully with sufficient dept of field! Pleasant natural colors and briliant detail. Good job in my opinion!
Regards,
George Veltchev

Merhaba Bayram dostum,
A few days’ trip north to visit family has delayed my activity on TN!
This is a fine capture of two Ilex hairstreaks taken from a nice POV with excellent sharpness, colours and lighting to make this a very good portrait of this species presented in a fine composition on the Cistus rose flower.
This species is quite common in Lesvos but rare in Sweden!
Thanks for sharing this one!
Best regards MF,
Ivan

Nikon'un Sigmadan farkı:) çekenin de ustalığı katılınca böyle harika bir sonuç çıkar işte.Çok çok güzel.Ben hâlâ 105 ile nasıl bu kadar yakınlaşabildiğine şaşıyorum.
Eline emeğine sağlık.Dört dörtlük bir fotoğraf olmuş.

Hocam valla 2 kelebeği de netlik zonu içine sokabildiniz ya. Dahada başka birşey demeye gerek yok bence. WS'deki de harika olmuş.
Emeklerinize sağlık. Saygılarımla,
Naşit

Ciao BBB. A winner one. Light colours and compo are perfect. Stunning details and incredible DOF. Best compliments.

Roberto

Hocam sanırım besleniyor,
netlik ve detaylarıyla nefis olmuş.
En güzel dileklerimle,
hoşcakalın.

Bonita escena la que creaste en esta composición.
Equilibrada y bien encuadrada. Buen documento técnico con su buena carga también artística.
Un abrazo Bayram: Josep Ignasi.

Bonsoir mon ami Bayram,

Ô! Deux amoureux de la même fleur!
Splendide support pour ces papillons.
Une fleur avec une robe toute froissée
et un coeur d'or ravissant.
Une radieuse et lumineuse composition.
Beau choix d'encadrement.
Bravo cher ami.
Bonne nuit. Amicalement.
