This day started very early as I woke up before daylight by a kind of bombing sound. Very early I drove to the wildflower place on the hill and at arrival I found out what causes the bombing sound: hunters. As it was very cloudy I was asking myself why I was out so early but a few minutes later I found my first present, a Heath Fritillary, and I knew why I was that crazy.
Present number two was a Marbled White which was enjoying the first sunlight.
In the afternoon I visited a Canyon not far away and as it was a heavy walk I took no camera with me. I saw at least hundred White Admirals, a lot of Erebia’s, a Purple Emperor, a few Silver-washed Fritillaries and a lot of Comma Butterflies. Due to the heavy rain of the past weeks some mud pools were left on the path in which a lot of Yellow-bellied toad’s, tadpoles and six little Grass snakes were living. Of course I will return soon with my camera.
Jibt dir dit Leben mal een Buff, denn weene keene Träne. Lach Dir'n Ast und setz Dir druff und baumle mit de Beene.
