|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|There are 9 Araschnia species. The genus is centred on the temperate regions of China and the Far East, but one species levana is found across most of Europe and temperate Asia.|
Araschnia levana exhibits very pronounced seasonal dimorphism. Both sexes of the spring brood are bright orange, marked with black spots and blotches that almost obscure the basal area of the wings. In contrast the summer generation adults are black with white spots and bands, and are very reminiscent of a small Limenitis species.
Araschnia levana is found across central Europe, and it's range extends across temperate Asia to China, Korea and Japan.

Really nice POV and focus, but I think it would have been better with less agressive sharpening. TFS.
