Photographer's Note

As many know, my main photographic passion is the macro photography of butterflies and insects. I always spend a lot of time during my holidays to catch new specimens for me. And this time it was a great emotion, to find this couple in love under a leaf. The difficulty lies in seeing them, then they are the easiest moments to photograph, as they do not fly away and you have all the time to ... fill your memory. The species is the Little Sulfur (Eurema lisa) is a species of Coliadinae that occurs in Central America and the southern part of North America.The wingspan is between 32 and 44 mm, not to be confused with the Sleepy Orange that is large and orange not yellow. The dorsal view of the forewing has a broad dark margin and the hingwing's ventral view has two basal blacks spots.In the southern part of its range there can be up to five flights, while in the northern range there are between one and three. During warm days males patrol for females so they can mate. Females lay eggs singly on the midveins of their host plant.


Come in molti sanno, la mia passione fotografica principale è la macrofotografia di farfalle ed insetti. Dedico sempre molto tempo durante le mie vacanze alla cattura di esemplari per me nuovi. E stavolta è stata una grande emozione ,scovare questa coppia in amore sotto una foglia. La difficoltà sta nel vederle, poi sono i momenti più facili da fotografare, in quanto non volano via e si ha tutto il tempo per..riempire la memoria. La specie è una coppia di Eurema lisa.
