The butterfly hike

There is a hike close to Lungern, Switzerland, that is called “Schmetterlingspfad” (butterfly path). We did it on the beautiful last day of June 2018. The hike was nice and it took us about double the time they suggested… There are not many seating possibilities and the downhill-parts were very hard on our untrained knees. The views and the diversity of animals and plants though were awesome.

We saw a lot of flowers, insects and a total of at least 20 butterflies. Because it was a little windy I couldn’t take photos of all of them. No photos from:

  • Schwalbenschwanz (Papilio machaon) Old World Swallowtail
  • Zitronenfalter (Gonepteryx rhamni) Common Brimstone
  • Schachbrett (Melanargia galathea) Marbled White
  • Kleiner Fuchs (Aglais urticae) Small Tortoiseshell
  • Distelfalter (Vanessa cardui) Painted Lady
