First of all I would like to thank everybody for the overwhelming birthday wishes!
Although the weather forecast was not that good for today, I visited a moor area this morning to search for the Large Chequered Skipper which I found some days earlier in an other moor area.
For this special occasion I was wearing my new anti-mosquito bracelet but within a few minutes I found out that it did not work at all and that my hands and face were breakfast again for a lot of mosquitos.
After a while I found the first resting 'golden' skipper followed by six others. As the temperature was around 18 degrees C, they became active as soon as my macro lens came too close. Some rain showers ensures that they did not fly away and that I had to use my umbrella to protect my camera; not the weather I wished for my birthday......but, I will not complain......enough butterflies, singing birds and no other people!
Jibt dir dit Leben mal een Buff, denn weene keene Träne. Lach Dir'n Ast und setz Dir druff und baumle mit de Beene.
