Nickerl's Fritillary

By fishiee
Thanks for the comments on yesterday's Reed Bunting upload and in particular the UA given by Ian.

I think the ID is correct with this one but there's about half a dozen species that look very similar!

Photographed in Switzerland last summer.

Lucky we are going to the French part of the alps this year given what has happened with the Swiss Franc recently!
