Erebia is a Holarctic genus of brush-footed butterflies, family Nymphalidae. Most of the about 90–100 species (see also below) are dark brown or black in color, with reddish brown to orange or more rarely yellowish wing blotches or bands. These usually bear black spots within, which sometimes have white center spots.
This genus has found it easy to adapt to arid and especially cold conditions. Most of its members are associated with high-altitude lands, forest clearings or high latitude and tundra.

Very fine colors and a not often shown butterfly species. Sharpness is good too. The composition is not optimal, like you say in your note.
A nice capture of this beautiful Arran Brown butterfly. A little older specimen but I think I am seeing it for the first time. Strange composition and it is normal in nature shots. Good sharp details. I think it is infested by mite. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hi, dear friend.
Thanks for visiting my photos and nice comments. It is a nice opportunity to watch your shots too because of lack of free time. Dimply amazing picture with stunning clearness and 3D-looking. Pictured subject, diagonal composition, details of the flowers and butterfly are incredible as well as very nice smooth BG. Lights and shadows of the shot are looked perfectly too. Brilliant use of camera. TFS and best wishes.
