On Thursday 18th January a storm, called Friederike in Germany, 'visited' the Netherlands and caused a lot of chaos and damage. The next day I walked with Wanda through the forest and noticed that a lot of trees had fallen down and that the paths were covered with branches. The majority were pine trees and branches but inbetween I discoverd one oak branch. I took him home and with the help of my magnifier I found one eggs of the Purple Hairstreak. A few days later I found on an other path some oak branches on which I found two eggs. A hand full of branches earned three eggs!
So if there are butterfly lovers who like to 'breed' purple hairstreaks.....the floor (forest paths) is yours!
Jibt dir dit Leben mal een Buff, denn weene keene Träne. Lach Dir'n Ast und setz Dir druff und baumle mit de Beene.
