Large Wall Brown (Lasiommata maera)

A common sight in Europe, this tiny butterfly packs a strong punch, flying the whole day through (unless it's windy, in which case it takes a break or two).

This pretty little thing can be found throughout Israel, by the riverside or within the city, and especially love to light on thistle flowers.
