They called them originally Flutterby , in Switzerland they call them „Sommervogel“ translated summerbird , in spain they name them Mariposa , what could be translated with „Mary sit down“ . The name Butterfly comes from the fact , that these insects have been attracted , when the farmer made their butter ( in german it´s the same origin )
Today i have been out , saw a few of them and tried to make pictures , at first with less chance , the only one i could catch first was the one beneath a mountain of shi….. sorry but it´s the truth.:-)
It´s hard to take pictures of them , only the one with eyes on his wings , seemed to be very self-confident , as if these great eyes would help him to defend him from me.- Yes it´s true i would never do him a harm, they are so beautyful .
