Leucistic small copper butterfly on Texel island


This is a video about a small copper butterfly in the Netherlands. This individual has the normal colours for that species.

On 22 May 2015, in the Krimbos woodland [see also here] on Texel island, local people Henk Leyen and Klaas de Jong saw a leucistic small copper butterfly. That leucistic small copper looked much whiter than usually.
