Water-nymph / Araschnia levana /

L 28– 40mm IV - IX

My two differently coloured seasonal forms. With butterflies of spring generation the top of wings is orange-red from black stains. At summer black from and wide, whitish sweatbands folded from stains thin, rust sweatbands. The bottom of wings from checked, bright drawing.

It steps out on edges of forests, glades, and waste lands.

Very active butterfly, feeds on flowers. The female sticks green, cylindrical eggs on top of the other in the form of "towers" underneath the leaves of nettles.

It spends winter in the form of the chrysalis

Witaj Roma,
A fine capture of a Map butterfly in spring form.
The composition, natural colours and sharpness are great and the butterfly contrasts well with the BG.
Thanks and best regards,

Hi Roma.
I almost do not visit city and TN this season and I have missed the whole series of your wonderful photos. It is a pity. Yu have pictured this cute butterfly at an impressive POV and wingspread. I also like fine diagonal composition of the image and very nice and pleasantly looking colours. My warm regards and TFS.
