[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a widespread species occurring from north Africa to most of Scandinavia. It is most conspicuous during the first warm days of spring when is is one of the first butterflies on the wing following hibernation. It flies again in summer when it feeds for several weeks, storing energy for the forthcoming dormant period. Towards the end of August the perfect butterflies disappear for the winter and until the onset of spring they will not stir even on hot autumn days.
