Many Dutch butterflies this November

This is a video of a geranium bronze butterfly in Spain.

Translated from the Dutch entomologists of the Vlinderstichting, Thursday 20 November 2014:

The continuing mild weather and lack of significant frost during the nights ensures that many butterflies are still there to see. Nearly 3,000 butterflies were reported until November 18, many more than normally for all of of November. On Monday, November 17th, as many as eight species of butterflies were reported, and last week the very rare geranium bronze.

Nearly sixty percent of these 3,000 butterflies were one species: red admiral.
