Pretty as flowers

Northern Israel in springtime brings lush green fields, blue skies, blossoming flowers – and, of course, the occasional fluttering butterfly. 

"I have sought and seen butterflies in Israel from Ein Gedi to the top of Mount Hermon," butterfly blogger Jeffrey Zablow told From the Grapevine. "The number of butterfly species is impressive, largely because of Israel's location and Israel's many diverse habitats." 

Zablow has written about his trips to Israel extensively on his website, Winged Beauty. When asked what he thinks the most beautiful butterfly is, he took a step back. 

"So many Israeli butterflies are just magnificent," he said.
