On the 15th of April, I visited the Cuckoo flower area and did not expect to find any butterfly as the complete area was still green. Surprisingly, I found one Orange-tip and walked back to my car to get my camera. When I looked through my lens, I noticed that it were two butterflies who liked each other very much. The next morning I returned as a beautiful sunrise was forcasted but unfortunately the fog became thicker and thicker.
When I returned the next day, I found two male butterflies on almost the same place and one of them was sitting perfect for the setting sun and finally I could make some photos which I had in mind for years.
Photographing Orange-tips is very addictive, so my alarm clock went off early today. I checked the sky and drove to the area again. As it was a cold night the complete grassland turned white from the frost. Although it looks very different, on the third photo it is the same butterfly on the same flower. As this little fellow was resting near a tree, the frost and ice crystals spared him.
Soon I will return again as I have a photo in mind with a lot of flowering Cuckoo flowers!
Jibt dir dit Leben mal een Buff, denn weene keene Träne. Lach Dir'n Ast und setz Dir druff und baumle mit de Beene.
