Farfalle in ogni dove.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

In Finlandia a fine settembre le farfalle sentono approssimarsi la fine della bella stagione e probabilmente anche della loro vita,  percio’ cercano ogni angolino possibile dove approfittare degli ultimi raggi di sole:  sulle scale,  fra il ghiaino ancora calduccio,  sullo zoccolo di cemento alla base delle case,  sulle architravi…

Naturalmente avranno lasciato molte uova fra la vegetazione,  che si conserveranno nel lungo inverno sotto la neve e si apriranno a primavera dando vita alle larve:  una seconda metamorfosi le trasformera’ piu’ avanti negli insetti meravigliosi che conosciamo.  Incredibile natura!

Butterflies everywhere.        

 In Finland at the end of September you can sometimes find butterflies in peculiar places:  on your home outdoor steps,  on the gravel of your courtyard,  on the concrete platform of your house,  on your windows:  they are trying to find every possible corner where to exploit the last warm sun rays,  as they sense the end of the good season and of their life. 

In the vegetation,  though,  they will have left lots of eggs,  which will rest under the snow all winter long.  The eggs will open in spring and give birth to the larvae,  which will later become the lovely insects that we know.   Incredible nature!

  1. Purtroppo anche da me nelle campagne veronesi si vedono sempre piu’ solo cavolaie (quelle bianche) che evidentemente sono le piu’ forti. Altre varieta’ stanno soccombendo ai cambiamenti climatici e all’agricoltura intensiva…

  2. Wonderful photos of these beautiful creatures. We see a few flitting about in the garden and they come into the warm conservatory/yard. It’s good to think of the cycle of life and hopefully butterflies will return next year.

  3. Beautiful! There’s something about butterflies that always make me smile. Our nights are beginning to get colder so the number of butterflies has begun to dwindle, but we’re still getting a few visitors at the butterfly bush and zinnias.
