Bath White

Saw my first ever Bath White ((Pontia daplidice) at Sandby, Öland yesterday. It´s a rare butterfly in Sweden and only reported once this year before these last 2 days when a couple of individuals turned up on Öland with some Pale Clouded Yellows.

Camberwells fly again

15:th of August 2012
For the first time this season the forest tracks are lined with plenty of Brimstones, Commas, Peacocks and Small Tortoiseshell. Also the first newly hatched Camberwell Beauties. Never experienced them coming out this late. But they flew well into July this year which is about a month more than normal, all due to a rainy, cold spring and early summer. Pics will come.

Northern Emerald

This Northern Emerald (Somatochlora arctica) was caught on one of just 3 known sites in the Black River area. Probably overlooked though.

Green Hawker

Found at least 4 Green Hawkers (Aeshna viridis) ovipositing in a ditch full of water soldier today. Not easy to get in clear view but at least I got something.
