[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This Marbled White (Melanargia galathea, family Nymphalidae) had strange greenish colours and did not move. When I approached, I understood why. It was dead and became a meal for a crab spider (Thomsidae), a Xysticus, I think.
ce demi-deuil (< i>Melanargia galathea, famille des Nymphalidae) avait d’étranges teintes verdâtres et ne bougeait pas. Quand je me suis approchée, j’ai compris pourquoi. Il était mort et servait de repas à une araignée-crabe (Thomsidae), une Xysticus, I pense.
