A little butterfly I did not have before. A real beauty when it comes th the underpart of it´s wings. I can´t figure out whether it is a male or female. They seem to be rather rare. At least I have not seen it before. There is a third image but I decided to post it on NF photography. If you like you can take a look HERE.

I went out looking for this kind of butterfly at a place where I have heard they had been spotted. I found one. I thought I had this one before but it turned out to be one of those I had not seen before. So, now I have two of them in my photo collection.  :)
According to litterature this butterfly is toxic.

A very interesting video from youtube

Don´t seem to have an English name. The Swedish name indicates blueberry as it also visited here.

NF Photo 130708 Krämbol

En mätare funnen i skogen. Rätt svår att hitta om man inte ser vart den landar.

It is a forest butterfly. Not easy to spot. You have to see where it land to be able to track it.
A new species for me. A butterfly lifer.  How about that?

My favourite moth. A small one but easy to spot as it is all black except for the tips of the wings.
Flies mostly on bushy meadows a sunny day.
