Spreading my Wings

Bergknappen i vår hage står i full blomstring og- plutselig er hagen full av ‘neslesommerfugler’ – hvilket jo er hyggelig? Men så kan man undre seg: Hva er det med Bergknapp som gjør den så populær hos nettopp neslesommerfuglen?
Jeg tro nøkkelordet i denne forbindelse er ‘kamuflasje’? Hvis man studerer bergknapp i blomstring, så ser man at den har nøyaktig de samme fargene man finner igjen i neslesommerfuglens vinger?!
The stonecrops in our garden are in full bloom and – suddenly the garden is full of ‘tortoiseshell’ butterflies’ – which is nice? But then one can wonder: What is it about stonecrops (Sedum) that makes it so popular with the tortoiseshell butterflies?
I think the keyword in this regard is ‘camouflage’? If you study these stonecrops in their blossoming, you may notice that it has exactly the same colors you find in the tortoiseshell butterfly’s wings ?!

    Oh, so gorgeous! We haven’t seen many butterflies where we live compared to when we were in Florida. It must be where we are located because Georgia has over 160 butterfly species.

    There are plenty of them from time to time, but the different species are pretty choosy about their landing sites! 🙂

  5. Thank you for the gorgeous photos! We have many different butterflies in our neighborhood. There is a somewhat similar butterfly without the blue spots called “Gulf Fritillary.” It is very abundant here. We also have the Florida state butterfly, “Zebra,” a yellow and black striped butterfly. I love them all! Stay safe and happy!

      We will! And – not knowing the exact situation in your state corona-wise, you have all better watch it! Keep safe! And don’t read any twitter messages! 🙂

      • We are being very careful. Florida has become the epicenter of infection in the US. Not on Twitter, and that seems to be a good thing! Thank you for your thoughtful post Cheryl

          With California, Texas, and a large number of other states, I believe? Last time I checked,41 states where on an upgoing trend! I think a lot of people throughout the world are victims of misinformation with regard to this pandemic. Sad, but true!
