At the end point of our hike in Divjaka Karavasta NP there were several of these pretty butterflies around. They are fairly large and have bright orange color on the inner wing.
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.
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?
