Chrysocrambus dentuellus
family Pyralidae Crambinae

A esta pequeña (1,5 cm) polilla de curioso aspecto la he encontrado ya en dos ocasiones: en un prado junto al Monumento al Río Tajo, en Teruel, y más tarde en Sorriba del Esla, León. Esta foto es de la primera localización, en Teruel.
Este pequeño animalillo, por lo que he podido obserbar, tiene la costumbre de posar patas arriba en hierbas no muy elevadas, lo que me hizo bastante complicado llegar a enfocar bien la foto. Debo decir que he rotado la imagen 90º a la izquierda y la he recortado un poquitín.
Espero que os guste aunque sea un poquitín.
Gracias por vuestra visita.


This is a very small moth (1,5 to 2 cm), which I have found in too places so far: beneath the monument to the River Tajo, in Cuenca, and in the place where I go the more, Sorriba in León.
The little crambinae has the habit to rest upside down, beneath small grassess, and it was rather difficult to take the picture. I must say it has been rotated 90º ccw, and cut a little bit.
Hope you like it.

Thank you very much for your visit.

Hola Maite,
thank you for posting a picture of a 'microlep'. In between there are a number of good books showing the different species. However, life pictures are not so often presented.
The colour pattern of the forewings is well shown. Eyes and the long palpi are also seen pretty sharp.
Best wishes, Peter

Hola Maite!
Que bueno verte por aquí de nuevo!
Y nos presentas esta polilla con muy buenos detalles, tanto en las patas, alas como antenas.
A pesar de la dificultad lograste enfocar muy bien en el insecto, con muy buena profundidad de campo para aislarlo del entorno.
Enhorabuena y gracias por compartir la foto.
Un gran saludo,

Hello Maite,
Still a nice shot of this butterfly, with a good BG and many details and colors
very well done

Hello Maite,
So you're into Moths now, and with very good captures too! You present this one in a fine pose with focus on the big eye. Great sharpness and true colours too. It stands out very nicely from the background and I like the composition. I think they're fascinating insects and often very beautiful.
TFS and regards, Ulla

Hi, Maite.
Thanks for sharing next post. Your charming model looks greatly on this thin stem. Details and sharpness of it are excellent as well as the nicely coloured BG. May be image is too vertical. However, excellent job and my best wishes (for example, more free time and frequent TN visiting.)

Hello Maite,
Great details in this fine macro shot!
The insect comes out well, and DOF is accurate leaving a non intrusive background...
Good colours, a pleasant composition!

Hola Maite.- Muy hermosa la "polilla". Exelente encuadre vertical dejando ver la pequeña rama que sirve de posadero. Muy bonito el fondo. El objeto principal muy claro y nitido. Exelente iluminacion. Saludos Luis52.

Hi Maite,
How are you?
Nice image. Well composed. Good light.

This moth is truly exotic, Maite.
I have seen it for the first time and its beauty grabs me.
The profile view shows a great deal of its features including those interesting patterns on its wings.
Well done and TFS.

Bonjour Maite
Très belle macro, beau sujet, cadrage et netteté.
Amicalement Robi

Hi Maite
Photos of Crambidae are rarely presented on treknature. Silvio posted one recently. Good photos are even more rare. This one is very good. Great sharpness and DOF. Good contrast and nice OOF buckground. Also nicely composed with moth on the left side
Best wishes

Magnifique, couleurs très naturelles, superbe composition.

Hi Maite,
Good to see you back after such a long time. Hope you are doing fine.
This is an outstanding shot of this amazing looking moth. Very impressive sharpness and colours on its wings. Superb lighting and spot-on focus. The BG highlights the subjects and you have captured a fabulous pose here. Excellent POV and DOF. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

Hi Maite,
It looks to be a very small moth. Lovely patterns on its body. Nice composition with excellent details and POV. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hi Maite.
I sure like the details of this photo. The vertical POV is excellent.

Great shot and composition.

A mi me gusta y no solo un poquitín. No son fáciles las polillas o mariposas de estos tamaños. Yo no suelo usar trípode y un dia me voy a asfixiar de tanto aguantar la repiración con estos bichitos.
Es una composición equilibrada y con excelente luz. Se ven claramente los detalles. Los colores parecen naturales, no se..
Muy bonita.
Saludos Maite

Bonjour Maite
Très belle prise de vue,les couleurs douces, l'éclairage, les détails et la composition sont parfaits et le BG est très joli.
superbe ce papillon
Bravo et merci....JP

Hola Maite,
Con lo pequeñitas que son y que bien te ha quedado, hace unos días subí una que creo debe ser la misma. Bonita la composición en vertical que es verdad suelen estar en esa posición. Excelente la nitidez y detalle. Un saludo

Hola Maite.

Pues si que la has visto en lugares vien distantes.
Muy chula te ha quedado.

Is it ugly or is it beautiful? I really cannot make up my mind!
Great details, wonderful composition

Hello Maite beautifull quality and light nice pov and composition tfs rgds Necip.

hola Maite

bonita foto de aproximación,
el sujeto es muy interesante por su forma y colores
tu punto de vista al mismo nivel está muy bien, y el fondo borroso hace resltar al insecto

el encuadre vetical va bien con la posición del bicho en la rama

te falta un pelín de nitidez, pero no se puede tener todo
