The Map (Araschnia levana) is a butterfly of the Nymphalidae family. It is common throughout the lowlands of central and eastern Europe, and is expanding its range in western Europe.
The Map is unusual in that its two annual broods look very different. The summer brood are black with white markings, looking like a miniature version of the White Admiral and lacking most of the orange of the pictured spring brood.

Hi Alina.
Simply brilliant picture of an amazing butterfly and so fine flower. I like selected DOF and great details of both charming objects. You managed to show all beauties of the butterfly. Your POV and wingspread of the insect are superb and its colouration is reflected perfectly. Light green smooth BG plays the role of the cute BG excellently. Too. Well done and best regards.
