After 4 attempts during the last 3 years I finally get to see my first ever Large Tortoiseshell (Nymphalis polychloros) on northern Öland. It´s the very first butterfly I lay my eyes on as I arrive to the site and it´s such a miracle. Yellow-legged Tortoiseshell was seen too on the same site a few days ago but not today. Note the dark legs.
