Middle Eastern White Butterfly

Lycaena Thersamon Omphale Butterfly photographed by Jeffrey Zablow in Binyamina, Israel

Seen in the coastal plains of Israel, the HolyLand, Anaphaeis aurota caught my attention, it so different from Israel and U.S. butterflies. The white was milk white and his contrasting black wing margins stood out, much.

Found in Israel, the Egyptian Sinai region and presumably Jordan and Lebanon, A. aurota flies from June to December.

Another that Jesus, Joshua and Aaron surely also enjoyed seeing. Binyamina, Israel, near Caeseria and Netanya.

  1. Beautiful. Thank you for sharing. I have been to both those places along the coast and I can see this little butterfly enjoying all the roadside flowers ❤️ Thank you for sharing 😊
