[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Usually associated with bramble the larval foodplant.

Identification & Similar species: Very similar to the slightly smaller lesser marbled fritillary, B. ino. Separated by the coloration of the square patch on the underside hindwing, just beyond the cell. This is partly filled pinkish in the current species, a solid yellow block in B. ino.

Distribution & Flight: Widespread and not uncommonly encountered from north Spain, south France and eastwards to Slovakia and Greece.

Habitat & Behaviour: A butterfly of woodland and bushy places where the larval food plant bramble grows. Frequently takes nectar from bramble and other flowers.

Hello John,
Almost nobody is willing to give any comment on the photos which were posted during the last days. Very sad.
But this a nice macro in beautiful colours with a fine blurry background. Good sharpness and taken from the best POV.

Hello John

Great macro of this beautiful butterfly in a very nice composition, nice POV, excellent sharpness and details.



Hello John,
Beautiful butterfly....I like its color. I think you faced very harsh Sunlight if we concentrate on white petals.
Thanks for showing this butterfly,

  • Good
