Argynnis aglaja
Family: Nymphalidae

This large and powerful butterfly is one of our most widespread fritillaries and can be seen flying rapidly in a range of open sunny habitats. The males look similar to the High Brown Fritillary, which is far rarer but sometimes flies with them on bracken-covered hillsides. The two can be distinguished from the underwing markings, visible when they are feeding on flowers such as thistles.

I forgot my camera, so I took this picture with my cell phone :)

Location: Říp mountain - czech national mountain, where first czech tribes appeared according to the legends and ancient chronicles.

Hello Karel.

Excellent picture, very good details and colors.

jose Luis.

I am impressed with the macro quality you got out of your cell phone, really. I had to look at this some minutes to believe it.
I would have lowered the green saturation and light on the BG. to make it stand out a bit better, I dared a fast WS to show you what I mean, hope you dont mind.
Regards, Felipe.
