Euphydryas cynthia

Denis & Schiffermüller 1775

Nome Volgare: Eufidriade di Cinzia

Lunghezza ala anteriore mm. 17-22

Descrizione: Rara farfalla, diffusa, in modo sporadico e localizzato, sull'arco alpino oltre il limite della vegetazione arborea, è caratterizzata, sulla pagina superiore delle ali dei maschi, da un'alternanza di disegni bianchi, rossi e neri, anziché solamente rossi e neri, come per le altre specie del suo genere presenti in Europa. La ssp. alpicola ha la peculiarità di vedere ulteriormente ridotte le aree rosse residue sulla pagina superiore delle ali.
Le uova sono deposte a gruppi sulle piante nutrici.
Gli habitat frequentati sono i prati di alta quota, dove le larve si nutrono e rimangono unite in piccoli gruppi fino alle ultime mute. L'adulto sfarfalla abbastanza precocemente, considerando l'altezza degli habitat, dopo uno sviluppo biennale.

Maschio: colore bianco con sottili nervature nere e disegni trasversali neri. Aree discali e fascia submarginale di colore rosso arancio.

Femmina: colore arancio alternato con aree più pallide, Disegni nervulari e trasversali neri che formano un reticolo uniforme. Velatura basale nera più estesa nelle posteriori

Rovescio: simile per entrambi i sessi, ali anteriori con colore più pallido e disegni simili al dritto, ma meno evidenti.
Ali posteriori simili al dritto, ma con un maggiore contrasto tra le fasce trasversali arancio e quelle più pallide grigiastre.

Distribuzione: Alpi

Habitat: specie glaciale, si rinviene nelle praterie del piano cacuminale, sino a circa 3000 metri s.l.m.

Generazioni annuali: una con sfarfallamento a Luglio

Piante nutrici: Plantago alpina, Pedicularis tuberosa, Rhinantus minor e Viola calcarata

Hi Silvio,
This is fine macro photography! I like the high POV to let us admire the beauty of this butterfly. Good diffused lighting.
An adequate crop and quite a neat presentation.
Have a good Week end.

Except for the blurred flower (seen the right half of the picture), I did like this closeup shot from a beuatiful butterfly, Silvio!

Amazing details of the subject's wings and nice clarity.
The contrast against the rock is nicely kept too.
Good control on light and exposure.

Have a nice weekend.

Ciao,
Paras

Hi Silvio

A good downward pov on the butterfly with the majority in sharp focus. Excellent graphism with superb color & saturation. Good textural details in the dried leaf which resembles cracked & dried mud. Tfs!

Good light and colour on this close-up. Not sure about the yellow flower on the right, maybe remove the distracting spot?

Ciao Silvio!
Se posso essere sincera, la macro è bella, però non proprio ai tuoi livelli. Bei colori vivaci e buona la composizione, anche se concordo con Tsilla sulla clonazione del fiore giallo, che distrae parecchio.
Ciao e buona settimana! Vanda

Good morning friend Silvio,

Excellent macro of this butterfly.
Very nice POV, which provides excellent supervision of the details of this winged insect :)
Good lighting and subtle colors. Well done
My compliments for your photographic talent.
Pleasant week.
Greetings.

Yolande

Very nice shot with excelent clarity, details and colour. Fine macro photography as Francis says.
regards
David

Bom dia Silvio
Your butterflys...you know them so well and you catch them with your camera with a good definition...I like the bg here ...it gives an interesting image of colors and textures...everything seem to be right.
um abraço

Hi Silvio,

The subject is well framed. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the Cynthia's Fritillary butterfly. The afternoon light is giving nice tints to the colors. Have a nice day.

Pierre
