Last Saturday we moved to an other valley with the hope to find a lot of alpine butterfly species. Unfortunately this valley is extremely suffering from the drought and although at day hundreds of butterflies are flying, I miss a lot of species.
The erebia's, grizzled skippers, scarce coppers and chalkhill blues are doing it very well. Thanx to a lot of erebia species I hit the 100 species!
During my visits to this valley in 2020 and 2021 I found the Silvery Argus....for me a special species and fortunately I found them regularly early in the morning. Although we have since almost four weeks blue skies, high temperatures without clouds and a lot of wind in the morning, I was happy to catch one male Silvery Argus with open wings just at the moment a very small cloud causes soft light:
For the first time cloudy weather is forecasted for tomorrow so I'm curious what I will find on the last day. A nice 'dessert' would be welcome!
