Sometimes I'm happy that the well-known meteorological websites are wrong! Today a windless and sunny morning was forecasted and because it was four weeks ago that I photographed 'my' last butterfly, my alarm clock went off very early. Bas Mandos joined me and by the time we arrived at the first area, instead of a beautiful sunrise, some dark clouds 'welcomed' us. Due to the bad weather of the last days and because it is the end of the flying-time almost all Bog Fritillaries were disappered. By the time we found the first Bog Fritillary, my trousers were soaked.
What a pity that the sun was absence as the scenery was perfect. Next to some Bog Fritillaries we found dozens of freshly emerged Silver-studded Blues.
On our way home we visited an area were a small population of the Cranberry Fritillary can be found. It was still raining and we both had soaking trousers and boots but the unpleasant feeling was forgotten when we found a butterfly on Common Cottongrass.
Back home after a warm bath and a hot cup of coffee I am very happy with the result of this wet day!
Jibt dir dit Leben mal een Buff, denn weene keene Träne. Lach Dir'n Ast und setz Dir druff und baumle mit de Beene.
