Moths, butterflies and birds

Moth on flower-pot, 8 June 2014

On 8 June 2014, in Losdorp, we saw this moth on a flower pot on the cemetery.

Before we had arrived there, at 13:56, a white stork from the train in Staphorst.

Later, in Drenthe province, more white storks, standing or flying.

In the Losdorp garden, at least three red admiral butterflies.

Barn swallows fly past.

Blackbird, pheasant, chiffchaff and chaffinch sounds.

As we walk to the cemetery, a small heath butterfly. Too volatile for a photograph.

Then, the cemetery with the moth.

Not far from the cemetery, a hare on a field.

Two Bombus pascuorum bumblebees.
