Yes, thanks, that is just what was explained in the wikipedia article about entrance pupil.

"The entrance pupil is the image of the physical aperture, as seen through the front of the lens. The size and location may differ from those of the physical aperture, due to magnification by the lens." /

so, somewhat behind the aperture blades.
