Some species of blue butterfly seen in Dedaj, Albania. Unfortunately there are tons and tons of species of these in europe, so I can't narrow it down to species.

Yesterday I had three new butterflies appear in the field. This gorgeous guy appeared when I was chasing a Black Swallowtail, and there was also a European Skipper around.

Not 100% sure on the ID of this one, but it looks to me like a female Grecian Copper. They are listed as a vulnerable species. This was seen on the edge of Lake Skadar, Montenegro.

A new butterfly for me! This interesting guy was eating bird poop (yum!) on the road at the Simon Pearce floodplains in Windsor, VT. I love the touch of firey orange above the white in the wing.

About

I am interested in seeing what kind of pollinators people find in their area. Some think it is just honey bees, but it is so much more than that.

Butterflies, skippers, moths, , birds, bats, beetles, flies, mosquitoes, ants, wasps and bees.

What are you seeing on the flowers right now?
