The Pearl-bordered Fritillary (Boloria euphrosyne) is a butterfly of the Nymphalidae family.

It is orange with black spots on the upperside of its wing and has a wingspan of 3846 mm. On the underside of the wings there is a row of silver pearly markings along the edge, which give the species its name. It is often confused with the Small Pearl-bordered Fritillary, but can be distinguished from it by the red chevrons along its pearl border (the Small Pearl-bordered has black chevrons) as well as the presence of a single silver spot in the middle of a row of yellow spots. The female has both darker markings and rounder wings than the male. The caterpillars are black with white or yellow spines along their backs.

Like other species of fritillary, the males have special scent glands on their wings so that they can be recognised by females of their own species and therefore find a suitable partner.

Nefis bir fotoğraf , tebrikler Fevzi bey .

Hallo Fevzi
What a great shot. This is truly a fine-looking image with lots of detail to appreciate. What a wonderful display of colours and patterns in one. The lighting is just right and composition is great. Point of view is magic. The butterfly is placed precisely right in the frame, bringing the wonderful colours and markings closer to the eye and superbly displayed.Thanks for sharing this delightful image.
Best regards

Another great shot Fevzi, congratulations! The dark background is not usual and the details of the head and wings are excellent. Best regards,
