Small Wood-Nymph
Cercyonis oetus

Observation date: August 06, 2020
Submitted by: Arthropoda7
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Relatively nice and sunny with a freak hailstorm that occurred a little while later in the day. Not much to say about this specimen's behavior beyond it prefering to stay close to or rest on the ground. Appeared to favor less "appealing" flowers (ie: visibly damaged, wilting, etc...) such as the one in the photo.
