Sometime one gets lucky
I was watching the news, and there was an set on a project to save these butterflies to the country.

Apparently, there are only ten places in Danmark where these are recorded, I had to look at my pictures from last week as this butterfly looked awfully familiar and bingo.

Euphybryas avrinia

I am not proud of the quality, but here it is, and now I hope I am not making a mistake :rolleyes:,,, but I will contact the local wildlifeoffice with my Picture and where I took it.
Have a nice weekend and thanks for wathing

Let us know if indeed it is endangered.

Either way, looks like you had fun getting out and shooting!

Yep, that looks very close...

I think you're right... :wink:

I did some researching on my own and if the figures are right, than the closest recorded species was seen over 200 km away .
hmmm, kind of exiting this is.
Probable turns out to be a subspecies :biggrin:

Very cool!

Thanks Chad
Just got a message back from the wildlifeorg. and they actually knew that the species has been seen in the area.
They were though very happy with the Picture.

Cool news, Nico...! :smile:

Yes, it makes a picture somewhat more appreciated, they apperently take counts of the sightings to determine if a special effort is needed.
To my relief, our area is one of the better ones :smile:
