[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
During our holidays in Obzor we walked near the village to small mountains or rather hills. It was fantastic place with great views, full of insects and spiky plants. I took this photo during our firs walk - we saw hundreds of these big butterflies floating over dry meadow. I think this could be Argynnis paphia but I'm not 100% sure.

Very good photo of this Nymphalidae!
Yes, its an Argynnis paphia (Linnaeus, 1758), also known as Silver-washed Fritillary in english.
Not very common i Portugal.
Very good details!
Wonderful color too!

Lovely portrait of the Silver-washed Fritillary Greg, one of your Bulgarian butterflies. Nicely captured with his right wing on this angle as it is also sharp too. I like the colours and patterns too. Well shown.
Getting plenty of rest?

ustrzeliłeś "pafię", gdzieś też ją mam. U motyli skrzydełka sprawiają wrażenie (na zdjęciu) jakby weszło ziarno. Też czasem walczę o jak najczystszy rysunek. Tutaj jest fajnie, dobra robota.
