Small butterflies

Special flora results in special butterflies. Butterflies are often specialised in only a few plant species and if that plant species only grows in a few places, the butterfly will do the same.

 copulating Dingy Skippers

Most people think of butterflies as large brightly coloured insects. And often they are. But some are not. The skippers are such a group. Small, dull coloured and very inconspicuous. But even so, it’s nice to find them, run after them and manage to get a few nice pictures of these butterflies who are really rare in the Netherlands.
