Butterflies in the Alps

What an amazing time we’ve had walking in the Alps. I still can never resist a photo of a butterfly-so here are some Alpine butterflies…..

A Fritillary

A Common Blue ( I know it’s brown but it’s the lady so she’s brown rather than pretty blue 😩)

I’m not sure what this little chap is called!

I’m thinking this gang of red and black boys are Burnet moths…

This is the male Common Blue!

I think that’s all for now-must go and play boules!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Vibrant

This week we have been asked to share a photo of something vibrant.

This I will do……

This little beauty is called the Blue Morpho for possibly obvious reasons but just look at his underside colouring……

Still vibrant but in another way!

The obligatory close up!

I was really surprised when I saw the Blue Morpho’s underside which

“is a dull brown color with many eyespots, providing camouflage against predators such as birds and insects when its wings are closed.”

I’m not sure I can agree that it is dull though!

That’s All!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Optimistic 2
