[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Map Butterfly (Araschnia levana) is a European butterfly of the brush-footed butterflies (Nymphalidae) family found in deciduous woods. Two and sometimes three generations are produced in a year, the spring generation being much paler in colouration than the summer generation and the occasional third generation in the autumn being mid-way between the other two in colour. The caterpillars develop on nettles in large groups.
