Butterfly flight

We have finished the get-to-know-each-other experiments with the butterfly pieris brassicae, also known as the large white or white cabbage butterfly. It is one of the most common butterflies in Europe and can be seen even here in Berlin very frequently. The animals were provided by Insect Services, which is a Spin-off of the Freie Universität Berlin.
