[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The picture shows a female of Melitaea phoebe. It was taken on a flower-rich meadow (Hohtschugge) in the vicinity of Graechen (Valais, Switzerland).
I rarely saw a place with such high numbers of butterflies and other insects - really fascinating!

good focus. wonderful background and sharpness. tfs.

really very nice, and very strange pattern: perhaps it's a Melitaea phoebe form alternans?
