Nuuksio, kuva: Spring flower and butterfly

19.4.2011 Nuuksio, Myllypuro

A beutiful yellow butterfly, brimstone, was flapping on the rocky cliffs that surround Myllypuro in Nuuksio. Around and around it flew, then it decided to descend behind an old fallen tree trunk. When I sneaked closer around the trunk I found my first common hepatica for this spring in Nuuksio: the butterfly was suckling nectar on a perfectly blue and tiny flower. It really is full spring in Nuuksio!
