on February 3, 2012, I was up in the Cumbre Pass at 4672 meters altitude and retrieve the small pieride Pierphulia nysias which I am really happy to see again.

Especially when I saw the first time in 2007, I knew there was so little white wings, and as high as 4672 mh as a locality lies that are not is much larger than 10 m2. I was not in advance it should be there?

View thread on Naturephotos.dk, unfortunately it is written in Danish, but you can see pictures from the Cumbre: http://www.naturephotos.dk/NaturePhotos_show_traad.php?menu=432&kgf=1185

Here is how small it is, wingspan, 20 mm. At the time under observation there was no more than +4 c And it changed from rain to snow in the period. It is the most hardy butterfly I have ever seen.
