Kleiner Fuchs Schmetterling - the Small Tortoiseshell Butterfly
It is lovely to see lots of butterflies out now. This is a small tortoiseshell butterfly (hint: click for bigger!), Aglais urticae, which in German is called der kleine Fuchs or 'the little fox'. I snapped it on a 55km cycle around the southern part of the Mauerweg (Berlin Wall Trail) near Lichterfelde.
