August 2017. High Summer.
Written by Jos   

Brown Argus

 

 

Past the peak for many species, but still quite a lot on the wing, several Purple Hairstreaks included, plus a selection of added extras, perhaps the most notable being a Marbled White 70 km north of the core area. Also seen, a few Turquoise Blues at one locality, good numbers of Chalkhill Blues in the south, a few Brown Argus and increasing numbers of Pale Clouded Yellows.

Meleagers Blue

 

 

By tradition, July is pretty much the peak of the butterfly season in Lithuania. No exception this year, many superb species seen, including Black Hairstreak, Assmann's Fritillary, Scarce Fritillary, Tufted Marbled Skipper. However, for one event, it stands over and above past years - the return of the colonists, Meleager's Blue and Marbled White.

An amazing transformation from the preceding month, sun taking over and an immediate surge of butterflies - twenty species in the first half of the month, including Dingy Skipper, Camberwell Beauties and Swallowtails, then a superb selection thereafter, not least Scarce Swallowtail, Baltic Grayling and Violet Copper.
