2, 3 # - Hipparchia statilinus aka Tree Grayling

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.

      How nice from the mountains in Portugal!
      Very interesting that the butterflies even landed on your legs. Don't think I have seen that before.

      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!

      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...

      Wow, gorgeous. You're so lucky, that happened to me once and I didn't have my camera :-( Love the last one.

      Maybe you were in the kingdom of butterflies :)
      What smart camouflage pattern they have.
