from Wikipedia
The Meadow Fritillary (Melitaea parthenoides)is a butterfly of the Nymphalidae family. Note that the common name Meadow Fritillary, is also used for the North American species Boloria bellona. It is found in south-western Europe, more specifically on the Iberian Peninsula, south-western France, parts of the italian Alps and southern and south-western Germany and a few regions of Switzerland.
The wingspan is 28-34 mm. In dry, favourable climates, adults are on wing in two generations, from May to June and from August to September. On high altitudes, there is one generation from June to July.
The larvae feed on Plantago species, but mainly Plantago lanceolata.

Hello Pawel,
This is a very fine capture showing the closed wings with fine details and colour of a Heath Fritillary Mellicta athalia. Nice composition and BG too.
The Meadow Fritillary is found in France but not in Poland. Thanks and have a good weekend,

Hi Pawel,
Nicle ligth and textures here!... Well done!

Piękne zdjęcie: kompozycja bez zarzutu, ładnie rozmyte tło, doskonała ostrość i głębia. Można by dużo się nad nim rozwodzić ale po co? Po prostu życzyłabym sobie wszystkich tak dobrych zdjęć jak Twoje.Gratuluję!
