Last Friday I returned to the Vosges together with four girlfriends for a high-tea-birthday-weekend. In ten days time nature in the Vosges was awakened and the forest floor was covered with white blooming wood anemones.
The weather conditions were excellent and on Saturday I saw the first Camberwell Beauty very soon after the sun started shining. I had a good helper and together we noticed at least four specimens. Photographing them was again a big challenge as they flew away immediately. On Sunday I had more luck when one butterfly started drinking from my house wall.
Next to the Camberwell Beauty we saw some Small Tortoiseshells, a lot of Brimstones, one Peacock Butterfly and one Holly Blue.

Hoi Silvia, wat leuk dat hij er nog was, prima vastgelegd, zover dat mogelijk is op de weg!

Dank je Louis, helaas gaat deze soort alleen maar op onmogelijke plekken zitten en niet zoals andere soorten op bloemen. Maar, ik zal niet klagen want ik ben allang blij dat er diverse exemplaren rondom het huis zitten. Groetjes Silvia
