Lemon Butterfly, enjoying lunch in the sun.


Day 116 of my 365 Photo Challenge.

32 degrees Celcius! That was the value the thermometer showed today.

Almost too warm to take pictures outside. Nevertheless, I set out to get a motif for my challenge.

Again I focused on the butterflies, which took the opportunity to drink flower nectar despite the heat.

Through the freshly planted flower meadows, there is enough supply for the insects. This is visibly reflected in a large number of insects and butterflies this year.

This specimen of a lemon butterfly took a long rest at one of the flower calyxes and obviously enjoyed the midday sun while it was feasting on the nectar.
