Aurora, male  NF Photo 090512

I have been searching for the female for several years. Today I finally found her. And was lucky enough to get shots. I was biking when I saw her. Thought she looked a little different from what I usually see. And I was so happy when I saw the undersides were mottled green and white . Aurora, YES! The photo of the male is from 090512

Fjärilarna är jätttefina. Roligt att du kunde ta foto på honan också. Tror aldrig jag sett någon av dom i verkligheten

Så fint ... ! Og jeg er virkelig imponert over artsmangfoldet du har i samlingen din her. Ønsker deg en god "jaktsesong" videre :)

Fascinating dusky pattern on the female's wings! Strong contrast with the orange of the male's wings! Gorgeous photos!
