Masters of Camouflage

Freyer's grayling rests only with its wings closed and blends well with the rocks that surround it. A common large butterfly seen on Symi and many islands in the Eastern Aegean.

Another common butterfly is the Aegean meadow brown also well camouflaged but does show its upper wings from time to time.
