Queen of Spain Fritillary (Issoria lathonia) on alpine pasture at the Col de Fyllis (1450m) in the French Alps.

This is a butterfly that I have never seen before - amazing!

They are a beautiful Fritillary aren't they! Very well captured.

Got a guided butterfly hol to the French Alps next July - will be superb! 150 species recorded in the area we're visiting!

A cracking shot of this pristine specimen, I believe these are very occasional visitors to the UK
