For the past week, the weather has been quite warm in central Europe. This has brought out the butterflies and other bugs in huge numbers. My walk to the Col du Torrent (@2,918 m or 9,573 ft) last week was therefore interrupted quite frequently while I snapped away. The sheer variety of shapes, sizes and colours is simply amazing, but I couldn’t find the precise names of them all I’m afraid.
I also discovered (on www.reference.com) that a group of butterflies is called a kaleidoscope (or a swarm, but I prefer the former). I like to inform and educate. 🙂
