No Admiral



During haying the kenderman spotted the White Admiral.
He was so enthusiastic about this rare butterfly, I completely trusted his suggestion for a blogpost!
I should have double-checked ;)
Now we now, THANKS to the Peelmormels, it's summer Araschnia levana.
(more info in Dutch and English)

  1. We think it's a Araschnia levana (second generation). It are lookalikes :-) But the orange on the wings (?) and the form of the wings are different.
