|Boloria pales (Denis & Schiffermüller 1775)|
To be met in the European Alps above the range of forests in summer at elevations beween 2200 and 2700m, this quick moving little fritillary loves to sit on rocks or a flower to spread its wings to the sun.
Taken at an elevation of approximately 2400 meters near Lucknerhuette on the slopes of Grossglockner, Kals, Tyrol.
