Yesterday afternoon, I visited a wooded area were I found the White Admiral in former years. Because there are not much butterflies around at the moment, I did not expect to find these rare butterflies. Entering this magnificent sultry wood with a lot of glades, I immediately saw some White Admirals. For about two hours I chased after these beautiful black and white butterflies trying to get a reasonable photo but without any success.....they were too active and too quick.
Besides a lot of White Admirals, I saw one Pale Clouded Yellow, a lot of Ringlets, at least hundred of Meadow Browns, some Comma Butterflies and one was laying eggs, a lot of caterpillars of the Peacock and Map Butterfly and some Large Skippers. Unfortunately I could not stay longer in this area nor do I have an opportunity to return soon. So probably next year will be the next chance to photograph the White Admiral.
On my way back I passed a pool with some loudmouths in it and a beautiful reflection appeared on the water. Lying down, eye to eye with this frog I suddenly had to think about a fairy tale.....
Jibt dir dit Leben mal een Buff, denn weene keene Träne. Lach Dir'n Ast und setz Dir druff und baumle mit de Beene.
