By coincidence my yesterdays appointment was cancelled so together with the same friend I returned to the butterfly paradise in Belgium which I mentioned in my former blog.
At arrival we found some resting butterflies; for camouflage they prefer brown stalks or flower buds.
In a week time nature can change significant! Instead of 50 Small Pearl-bordered fritillaries, I found 50 Wasp Spiders and the reason why only 20 fritillaries were left. Also most of the flowers were wilted or in the proces of getting brown. Next to the Small Pearl-bordered Fritillaries also some Queen of Spain Fritillaries were left:
After a while we had to give up as the wind was too strong. I'm really looking forward to visit this place again in 2014 and to search for the first generation of the Small Pearl-bordered Fritillary!
Jibt dir dit Leben mal een Buff, denn weene keene Träne. Lach Dir'n Ast und setz Dir druff und baumle mit de Beene.
