Black & White
For the first time I have an other holiday than I have usually; I’m surrounded by a lot of horses, pony’s, cattle and flies instead of butterflies. Although, yesterday at arrival, I immediately saw a black and white butterfly on the shrubs near the accommodation and I assumed that it was the White Admiral. Unfortunately I was in a hurry as I needed to do some shopping’s.
In the early evening I saw a white butterfly flying into a shrub with a lot of white leaves..... I required some time to find this Large White butterfly and looking through my viewfinder for one second I was thinking that he is wearing a ‘Lederhose’ as there was something wrong with his wing.
Due to the summer weather the Black and White butterflies were up early this morning and with an unpacked camera I tried to photograph them. Immediately I noticed that this was not the White Admiral but an other species. From my book I learned that it is the Hungarian Glider (Neptis rivularis) and like his brother, the White Admiral, he is not interested in getting immortalized on photo.
For the next two weeks it will be ‘my’ challenge to photograph the Hungarian Glider and to find places WITH butterflies as the meadows nearby are used for intensive farming.
