Description

Nice post-breeding plumage bird hiding in the dunlins. Can see the difference in size particularly in image 2 where the bird is to the right of center.

In image 1 this bird is in the top of the flock slightly to the right. Unfortunately it is mostly hidden in many images because of where it was in said flock.

Grayling Hipparchia semele

Description

These images show a male trying to court an aberrant dark female. I was not able to catch the female for upperside views. It was probably different looking on the upper side due to the colour mutation. Ah well.

Description

I'm not a huge fan of handling butterflies in this fashion, but it is the only way to see the upper side of the wings when they are still alive. And yes, I caught them with my hands. Net would have helped though.

This one is a male, and the same individual shown at this observation http://www.inaturalist.org/observations/1874051.

The two genders are easily separable but only from the upper pattern.
