[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a species often found in gardens. The caterpillars feed on stinging nettles, as do those of several Nymphalidae butterflies.
The adult is striking, with its dark body and red and yellow wings, which have a row of blue dots around the rear edge. However the underwings are dull, which helps to conceal stationary or hibernating individuals. When threatened, resting individuals rapidly open their wings, presenting the dramatic display of colours.

Hallo Joszef
This is beautiful. Your photo of butterfly does nature proud. The detail of the patterns and markings as well as the variation of colours is seen with great clarity and flair. I like the natural surrounding in which you have captured it, and the classic position with its wings wide open. Thanks for sharing this lovely image. Best regards.
