Hi Trekkers,

Just came back from my holiday from Hungary, and I saw this interesting butterfly species. I don't have a clue which species it is, probably the Common Brimstone (Gonepteryx rhamni), but I'm not at all sure. Any ID help most welcomed.

Thanks for your help, looking and commenting.

Note update, 2nd of April: thank you so much for trying to identify this "butterfly" species, guys. It's really the European beech (Fagus sylvatica) as some of you recognized. I update the genre and category of the photo as well. Thanks for your comments, I hope I was able to give at least a bit of fun and you smiled.

Hi Laszlo,in effect the date make me to thinks at a Brimstone,one of the 1st butterflies flying at the end of winter,but the POV and the position are very very curious,maybe the most curious pic about this specie that i never seen..ehehe...the quality is absolutely perfect,fine details and a very bright yellow despite the difficult light,very interesting post!Have a good night and thanks,Luciano

Hi Laszlo,

it is indeed a strange butterfly but a very nice presentation .
Colorful , sharp and bright.

Thanks for sharing.

Wish we could see the head of this butterfly which, in fact, looks like a yellow flower to me.
There is a slight resemblance in the pointed tail-end with a Brimstone. Other than that, it is a totally unfamiliar species.

Really excellent composition.
Sharp with a good DOF.
In my favorites.

Ah, a rare and nicely taken shot of Aprilis stultorum. This species has a very short life span, and by now has probably already expired.
Best wishes, Nigel.

Hello Laszlo,

I think you have a nice holiday with your family members. Hope all are well and healthy.

What a beautiful rare Butterfly you have posted for us. I think it's an "Aprilis Bolondja" species. Very nice focus on its wings! Excellent color and very good sharpness.
But yes, Nigel is right.....their life span is very short; only 24 hours!
Amazing species!
Thanks for showing us this beautiful butterfly,
