Three weeks ago I was walking with Wanda (my Sheperd) when I noticed an empty chrysalis of the Comma Butterfly on nettle, further inspection resulted in three more empty chrysalises! Apparently I had found 'the' favourite place of this species. The complete nettle plant had six or seven stems and suddenly I noticed some caterpillar feet between the flowers. The battle (see my blog from 20/08/2016) started again. Fortunately this caterpillar was not infected and exactly one week ago, just in time before I started a trip to my hometown, a new butterfly was born:
After 17 years and countless hours of waiting the battle is won! The complete sequence can be seen here (Butterflies -> Metamorphosis -> Comma Butterfly)
