This is a quite big butterfly, very shy and quick to escape. It looks very similar to Hipparchia fagi. We can recognize it thanks to the second white strike on the lower wings.
I have seen in Lardiers both species, I aready have shown H. fagi

Good evening, neighbour! :-)
Yes, I experienced how difficult is to photograph this species, as it's fast and never sits on a flower for too much. So I have no useful photos of it at all. :-( Beautiful image in natural sepia tone, well shown textures and details of the wings + in addition, pleasant, excellent composition. Although the open winged pose is imho always more spectacular, this is a fantastic shot. Huge congratulations.
Best regards, László

Hello Anne,
A very pretty butterfly that is new to me. The dark earth toned colors in it's wings show up nicely against the light BG of whitish pebbles. I like the unusual grizzled-like markings in it's wings. I would imagine this helps to camouflage it against any would be predators. Well done!!

Beautiful capture.I can't capture well when it sit on the ground.Nice POV.I like its colour and splendid sharpness.Nice light.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice Sunday,

Hello Anne
very pretty butterfly with its chocolaty wing colors. The close up is s exciting with the details well seen. The subject is well camouflaged with its surrounding I think.
Nice presentation.


Ciao Anne. Very good close up. Amazing transparencies perfect DOF and details.
