tortoiseshell

Two pictures of a small tortoiseshell (Aglais urticae), a colourful Eurasian butterfly in the family Nymphalidae. I took these pictures today on the “PEN island” outside Amsterdam.

  3. Already! We have a similar species but I don’t think it will appear for another month or so. You must be enjoying the nice weather!

    • Everything’s unusually early this year! Not sure that’s a good thing but I do enjoy the sun and the warmer weather.. And the butterflies of course! 🙂

      • No, you can’t complain! We are a little late, which at this point, now that everything has started, is fine with me.

  4. Great shots as always! You are really spreading out spring fore which is nice. Still brown in the middle of Canada but there’s hope😊

      • Thanks Tony! I resisted the temptation to crop the images so the “spring feeling” shows more 😉
