From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Zygaena filipendulae, is a day-flying moth of the family Zygaenidae. It is a common species throughout Europe.
The sexes are similar and have a wingspan of 3040 millimetres (1.21.6 in). The forewings are dark metallic green with 6 vivid red spots (sometimes the spots are merged causing possible confusion with other species such as Five-spot Burnet). Occasionally the spots are yellow or even black. The hindwings are red with a blackish fringe. The adults fly on hot, sunny days from June to August,and are attracted to a wide variety of flowers such as knapweed and scabious as well as the larval food plants bird's foot trefoil and clover. The species overwinters as a larva.

Hello Jiri,
An excellent picture of Z. filipendulae posed on this fine purple flower and in front of a fine green blurred background. Sharpness is excellent, not an easy task with these creatures.
Well done again!
kind regards
