[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

Today I will show you a Zygaena purpuralis or a Zygaena minos at a Melampyrum arvense. Both Zygaena´s are possible because the difference between both species can be only clarified with a genital analysis.

I found that very nice species into a shell lime stone area which contains try grasslands.
That area contains to the natural protected areas into my near.

Sadly the sun was not shying as I made the pictures.

I want say thanks to all which comment my last pictures.
Sadly I stay again before my third suggestion and have at the moment not many possibilities to sit for a longer while at my desk. Sorry for that.

I wish you all a nice weekend and always a lucky finger at you cam.

Ciao Sascha. Perfect sharp and details with intrigant shades.
