Funny, how sometimes things happen. Since years I was hoping to find the Scarce Large Blue and Dusky Large Blue during a holiday. I remember how I was searching in Austria in 2008 for them in area’s with Great Burnet (larval foodplant of both species).
Again my alarm clock went off early today and after a 25 km drive I arrived at the Dusky Larg Blue area......a road with Great Burnet. Photographing butterflies was very risky as most people were driving very fast and the road was too small for two cars. In the first place I thought that this species was only living next to this road but some later I entered a meadow in which I also found resting butterflies and a lot of Great Burnet. As I noticed yesterday some more larval foodplants on the other side of the meadow I assume/hope that this group has a 'safe' habitat.
Jibt dir dit Leben mal een Buff, denn weene keene Träne. Lach Dir'n Ast und setz Dir druff und baumle mit de Beene.
