Hard working

For many people summer means lacy days in the sun or in the shade. But for the insects summer is a busy time. So also for this Small tortoiseshell (Aglais urticae). It was a challenge to get a good shot as the wind was moving the flowers, while the butterfly collected nectar in super speed. Moving fast from one clover to another.

Ha de Gött!

  2. Great shot! I love your observation that summer is so busy for some. Last night the kids and I read a book about ants – their amazing communities and how they’re all born to a specific task within that community and how they all work for the good of the community. They’re certainly busy little critters!! Although the book did observe, they enjoy a micronap! 🙂
