Melitaea punica (Algerian Fritillary) [in Turk. Cezayirli İparhan]

I encountered with this rarely seen beautiful fritillary near the Beyşehir Lake (Eflatun Pınarı, Beyşehir, Konya). I also attached a WS showing the upperparts of this beauty.

TFL and Have a nice day!
Cheers,

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

This colourful fritillary is distributed from N. Africa across Anatolia (Turkey) to Transcaucasia, Iran and the S Europe. Both the northern and the eastern borders of the distribution area of this species are unclear.

It prefers dry to semi-desert biotopes. Adult butterflies are on the wing between May and July. The close relative Melitaea phoebe is larger and black marking more strongly developed. In other close relative M. cinxia the submarginal fascia of uppersides of the hind wings with black spots.

Hi Bayram,
A very descriptive macro of this beautiful butterfly with matching colors of the surroundings.
Beautiful lighting and an appropriate low POV to let us admire wholly the insect.
Superb color saturation and, as usual, a very informative note.
Thanks for sharing.
My best regards,

Francis Xavier

Merhaba hocam...
İnsanı Tefekküre iten harika güzellikler, vücudundaki simetrik nakışların bir sahibi olduğunu insanın gözüne sokar gibi nakşedilmesi yüce yaratıcının varlığının küçük bir ispatı...iyiki varsınız, bu güzellikleri hep beraber paylaşıyor ve yaşıyoruz, selam ve saygılar....

Ciao Bayram


Impressive details in the butterfly,
and the colours are very well reproduced!
Fine texture in the wing, and accurate DoF isolates the subject well...
A balanced composition, nice work!

Greetings,

Sergio

This is such a fine macro capture from the Algerian Fritillary with marvelous details, Bayram Uestad!

The clarity and colors are amazing, however, I love the focus on the eyes of this fella. Great sharpness and well chosen POV also enhance the overall beauty of the shot. Well done!

Greetings,
Paras

Nefis bir fotoğraf, kelebekle göz göze gelmiş hissi veriyor, renkler ve nettlik harika, tebrikler.

Bonjour Bayram,
Magnifique macro très bien composée. On dirait que le papillon a choisi un emplacement où la couleur de ses ailes se fond dans le paysage. Très belle netteté.
Merci et bonne journée.
