This small but stunning insect would appear to be Darwin's Heath (Coenonympha darwiniana), based on all the literature I can find. Alternative views welcome.
In comparison to our Small Heath, this is a very vividly coloured insect but equally shy!
I am beginning to think that the Col des Fillys (where this image was taken) in the Alpes de Haute Provence is perhaps one of the best butterfly spots I have found for diversity.
A cracking close up of this beautifully marked and coloured little butterfly
it is a very nice Coenonympha arcania-pearly heath. Please compare here
July looks right, I saw the last one then.
And you are right they are very easily scared away.
Wow what a beautiful shot, stunning Butterfly
Pearly Heath. Darwin's doesn't have such a pronounced broad postdiscal band, which is very evident here.
Agree about the area, which is why we've got a guided tour there and in Mercantour for July 2014, with Roger Gibbons - the authority on the butterflies in that area.
Now, waffle over, it is a lovely shot so well done!
Lovely image with great sharpness and colour
Nice Image!! I like it a lot!!
