Duck and butterflies

This video is from the butterfly garden in Waalre, the Netherlands: the Red Admiral (Vanessa Atalanta).

The female tufted duck of last week is still in the castle pond in the nature reserve. Many barn swallows flying over the eastern meadow.

Speckled wood butterfly. Two red admirals; one flying, one sitting, head down, on a young tree nearby. A grasshopper.

    • Hi, thanks for commenting. The Red Admiral actually is one of the bigger butterfly species in the temperate zone (in the tropics, there are much bigger species). It is a more quiet species, so easier to film than, eg, the ringlet, moving most of the time.
