2, 3 # - Hipparchia statilinus aka Tree Grayling

[Photographed in Serra Da Estrela - Portugal]

When I stopped for a lunch on this road, you'd not believe how many butterflies like these were flying and stopping. they would even stop on your legs! It was truly amazing.

josy63 Super Ricky !
An impression of perfect mimicry
And I hope that these attractive small animals took you under their wings and made you fly away to you at about a moment of happiness...

djnana Ver nice captures - love the clarity and detail in the last one. That road in the first one looks rather scary, with sharp turns! That's a really pretty shot, too!
