Delight of Spring. May 2019.
Written by Jos   

Traditionally an excellent month in Lithuania, the numbers of butterflies rapidly increasing as the month progresses, including flights of some of the most enchanting species in the country.

Good first half of the month, with Swallowtails, Dingy Skippers and early Clouded Apollos among the 20 species seen, then a dramatic upswing with almost 40 species on the wing, including more Clouded Apollos, highly localised Mallow Skippers and Violet Coppers, plus other goodies such as Bog Fritillary, Little Blue and Green-underside Blue.
