In Flight

Hemaris fuciformis

This is Macroglossum stellatarum, Eng: hummingbird hawk-moth, Ger: Taubenschwänzchen. It doesn’t land on flowers when slurping (sipping, ingesting, …?) feeding on nectar, but hovers in front of them, like hummingbirds do. It is also Very Quick and Rather Hard To Photograph With It Actually Being In Focus. So I am quite pleased with these photos!

Le Petit Mars

Le Petit Mars

From what the internet shows and tells me, my best guess is that this butterfly is a member of the species knowledgeable lepidopterists identify as “Apatura ilia” – Ger: Kleiner Schillerfalter, Eng: Lesser Purple Emperor, or, as the title says, Fr: Le Petit Mars. Butterly names are both lyrical and strange. Strangely lyrical / lyrically strange … stryrical?

An August Meeting

An August Meeting

The German name of this Pararge aegeria is Waldbrettspiel (forest boardgame*), the English one is Speckled Wood (geflecktes Holz).

* (albeit possibly more in the sense of “wood in the forest, being playful”, i.e. Waldbrett-spiel, rather than Wald-brettspiel)
