Photographer's Note

I was indiscreet and I was looking at butterflies in their bedroom :)
Only a few years ago, during the walk I saw many species of butterflies. From year to year there are less and less of them.
Many insect species: dragonflies, beetles, butterflies, ladybugs are dying out due to the use of fertilizers and environmental pollution.
On TE, we have several butterfly specialists, but I think I recognized this last photographed butterfly well.
The small heath (Coenonympha pamphilus) is one of the smallest butterflies, wingspan up to 3.4 cm. It is widespread in colonies throughout the grasslands of Eurasia and north-western Africa.
