Romania: butterflies

We were really lucky on this trip – not only did we see bears and birds – we also had some fabulous views of butterflies.  Some butterflies, like the Silver-washed Fritillary, will land and pose for photographs.  Others are far less co-operative.  The Clouded Yellow took off every time I approached and I struggled to get any sort of camera shot.

Brown Argus (Aricia agestis) – Denizdepe
Clouded Yellow (Colias croceus) – Ciucurova
Common Blue (Polyommatus icarus) – Vadu
Silver-washed Fritillary (Argynnis paphia) – Macin Mountains

Wade and Rock are a UK based couple who love good food and wildlife and love travelling to find it. Wade does most, but not all, of the writing and the photography. Rock shares the eating experience and tells Wade when planned posts fall short on sense or style or taste. In the opinion of Wade (and many of our friends) she is also a fabulous baker. WadeandRockandFood mainly consists of reviews of restaurants and pubs we have recently visited. WadeandRockandWildlife and WadeandRockandPlaces are mostly photoblogs.
