Melitaea sp (M. parthenoides ??)
Of some 5 cm in wingspan, this is a predominantly orange butterfly with white borders and black pattern on wings. I'm not absolutely sure about the ID, and I was thinking Meadow (M. parthenoides)...
Here seen on montane pastures, bordering mixed forest on lowland hills, in a valley between Jura mountain range and lake Geneva.
Lat: 46.34, Long: 6.10
