Thursday is Butterfly Day Giveaway: Week 9. Map butterfly. / Бабочка Пестрокрыльница изменчивая.

2년 전
I photographed these butterflies, picturesquely placed on high pink thistle flowers, in July 2012. I rested in the country with my friend. The study of plants and animals around, their photography is part of my entertainment during the summer holiday. Этих бабочек, живописно разместившихся на высоких цветах розового осота, я сфотографировала в июле 2012 года. Я отдыхала на даче у подруги. Изучение растений и животных вокруг, их фотографирование составляет часть моих развлечений во время дачного отдыха.


From the photos I tried to determine what kind of butterflies. Internet in this invaluable assistant. And that's what I found out. По фотографиям я попробовала определить, что это за бабочки. Интернет в этом неоценимый помощник. И вот что я выяснила.
This butterfly is called the Map butterfly (Latin Araschnia levana) - diurnal butterfly of the nymphalidae family (Nymphalidae). These butterflies live in Eurasia in large areas. Эта бабочка называется Пестрокрыльница изменчивая. или Сеточница весенняя (лат. Araschnia levana) — дневная бабочка семейства нимфалид (Nymphalidae). Эти бабочки обитают в Евразии на больших территориях.


These butterflies have an unusual property. There are two generations: spring after wintering and summer. So: they are painted in different ways! Spring - bright orange speckled. And summer - such as in my photos. Previously, they even thought that these are different types of butterflies. When they found out that it was one species, they conducted experiments. According to the latest data on the color affects the duration of the day. When the winter pupae were additionally lighted, in spring, brown butterflies with light spots were painted as in summer. У этих бабочек есть необычное свойство. Бывает два поколения: весенние после зимовки и летние. Так вот: они окрашены по-разному! Весенние – ярко-оранжевые в крапинку. А летние – такие, как на моих фотографиях. Раньше даже думали, что это разные виды бабочек. Когда же выяснили, что это один вид, проводили эксперименты. По последним данным на цвет влияет продолжительность светового дня. Когда подсветили дополнительно зимние куколки, весной из них вышли бурые со светлыми пятнами по-летнему окрашенные бабочки.
