The first butterfly




The first butterfly this spring!
I saw it in Espoo Central Park
by lake Mössenkärr, 29.3.2014.

 I'm not good at ID:ing butterflies,
but I believe this is a large tortoiseshell.
(Please correct me if I'm wrong.)

I'm linking to Saturday's Critters
and Camera Critters.

  7. Heisann!

    Skjønne sommerfugler som kommer med bud om varme og lange dager. Jeg så den misnste og den største sommerfuglen lokalt for to uker sida, men jeg klarte ikke å fange dem opp med kamera. Den jeg har på bloggen, tok jeg bilde av i Pyreneeene da jeg var der i mars. Ha en fin ukeslutt du også....og smykket er mye i bruk 😎.
    Håper du har fått penegene for det!

  15. Hi Gunilla, yes I think that it a Large Tortoiseshelle, but it's not got small blue around its wings, maybe it has later. You did very well indeed to shoot him.

  17. En sliten nässelfjäril. Javisst. Den har övervintrat och är därför lite medtagen. :)

  20. I envy you your spring - and the butterfly. He does camouflage well, so you were good to spot him. Today it is warm (20C) but by tomorrow they are forecasting more snow :(

  21. I have to study my books and photos to have any chance of identifying any local butterflies. I'm not sure what this one is, but he's beautiful.

  22. What a pretty one. Butterflies are so amazing. During their short lives, they bring us such beauty...just like this one.
