Zygaena purpuralis - family Zygaenidae.

PL: Kraśnik purpuraczek
UK: Transparent Burnet
SK: Vretienka dúšková
CZ: Vřetenuška mateřídou
DE: Thymian-Widderchen

Very attractive but not very common from Zygaenidae. The larvae feeds in Spring on Thymus plants. The adults are on the fly between end of the June and August.
As all other Zygaenidae - it's a day-flaying moth. It preffers violet flowers and can be found in hot, sunny places - especially on sunny slopes.

Other shot of this nice moth you can find here.

Nice moth Chris. I like sharpness and beautiful colors.

Beautiful shot Chris ! It's a good idea to present it centered. Zygaenae are not common in my area, never seen this one.

Excellent shot, nice details and superb compo.
Colors are great.

Hi Christopher,
Very good picture of the Thymian-Widderchen. In my region they are quite common, may be because there are a lot wild violet flowers!
Have a nice day

Very good shot
