Hello Fatih, is not easy for identify this specie because i can't see all spot on the wing But i think this can be Erébia Nériene
present far east Russia area and around Korean sea and Nord of China.. Thanks for showing this specie, very rare on web! Congretulation Best regards.. Dany

Hello Fatih,
nice to see this far eastern Erebia, very beautiful pose, well shaping light, nicely balanced composition!
Very colourful appearance in the strong light looks good, but colours may have been slightly oversaturated.
Sorry I cannot be of help for the exact ID. But we do have some real experts here on TN, e.g. batu, osmeterium, ..., who may give useful comments soon.
With thanks, and best regards,

Hello Fatih
Excellent shot and wonderful capture. I agree with Dany that this seems to be Erebia neriene, a far rarely seen butterfly. Sharpness, DOF, colors, POV and composition are great.
A superb job.
My compliments and TFS.

Hello Fatih,
At first look I thought this is Erebia aethiops(Scotch argus),but later I looked again and now I think Dany is right with the ID of Erebia neriene.
TFS Harm
