Little Fox is restin’

Little Fox is restin'

Yes, yes, this is a butterfly of the Aglais urticae species, whose correct English name is “small tortoiseshell”. It’s German name, in turn, is “kleiner Fuchs”, the word-by-word translation of which is little fox. And, yes, I am totally anthropomorphisizingly ascribing to this butterfly that it is, indeed, ‘resting’. Cause “little fox is restin'” sounded like a better, if less scientifically descriptive, title, than “Aglais urticae photographed stationary on gravel, wings folded”. Or something :-). Poetic license, I am taking it. (But taking it where? And why?)
