Little Wood Satyr Butterfly

Little Wood Satyr Butterfly
this little beauty held still for a long time
but it never gave me a chance for an under-wing shot.

. . . not familiar with this one . . . beautiful, Susie!!
. . . we don't have many different varieties locally, and not in any great quantity either . . . always a REAL treat when I do come across one - and even bigger treat if I have the opportunity to shoot it!!

we have quite a variety here, and I even spotted a lifer early on - a Black Swallowtail.

Ha, Susie ... some of the toughest shots to get are of Butterflies ... chasing them is a science on to itself ... getting both the top wing and under wing at the same time is very difficult ... an outstanding capture ... I have photographed this species before and it was tough ... excellent details and clarity ... well done ... 2-3 days of heat here ... but I am glad it will cool to in the 70's but next week ... take care!!

I couldn't remember which Satyr this was Art - all the ID websites had under-wing shots.
a friend in NY helped me ID this one.

Sher is right that we don't have much variety in butterflies.
Nice catch here, Sus

I would have liked to get the under wing shot so I could have an easier ID for this Satyr.
there is one in the Satyr family that are on the endangered list.

Very nice shot! I haven't gotten any good butterfly photos yet this year.

patience Dee Dee :))
I was surprised to get shots as usually I have to wait until they are old and tired and not so fluttery.
but today I was trying to catch a shot of a Hackberry Emperor - quite a spastic thing!
the description of them on the Butterfly and Moths page is "fly in a fast and erratic manner" - so true!

A superb capture. Gorgeous light and wonderful detail. Wish I could take shots like this :-)

just keep at it Roger, I probably delete nearly half of my macro shots.
sometimes they come in crystal clear. and... this is a crop just to take out some of the surrounding clutter.
