The speckled wood (Pararge aegeria) is probably the commonest butterfly found in Greece. She occupies a diversity of grassy, flowery habitats in forest, meadow steppe, forest, woods, glades. It can also be found in urban areas alongside hedges, in wooded urban parks, and occasionally in gardens. Within its range the speckled wood typically prefers damp areas, and the pictured one, was spotted fluttering around a shallow creek, in Tsagarada village, Pelion mountain, Greece.
