[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This butterfly is a peculiarity for our area, the Ruhr-District, located in the middle of Germany.
The species shown is
- Brenthis ino
- family: Nymphalidae

resting on a leaf of its caterpillar foodplant
- Filipendula ulmaria
- family: Rosaceae

In the last years a meanwhile individual-rich population of Brenthis ino has established in a small nature reserve close to my home. The foodplant of the caterpillars, Filipendula ulmaria, is threatened by the intruding neophyte Impatiens glandulifera - a global problem known for many other places and habitats.

Today, we started an activity to eliminate the intruder and were already rather successful. At this occasion, we had the opportunity to observe also the species which we would like to protect. And it was possible to take some pictures as the one shown here.

Hallo Peter, wonderful picture and congratulations for your efforts !

Hallo Peter,
schöne Aufnahme von diesem seltenen Falter mit guter Schärfe und natürlichen Farben. Am besten gefällt mir aber deine Information zu diesem Schmetterling. Ich hoffe es gelingt euch diesen Pflanzeneindringling zu eliminieren und somit die Art zu schützen.
Viele Grüße,

hallo Peter
