Medium sized attractive butterfly, about 5 cm in wingspan, flying/playing around in small groups of 3 to 5 individus. I find these beauties very attractive, with that dark brown base colour, combined with orange and white design.
Met during my last weekend trek through mixed forest (oak, beech, spruce and fir) on a rolling hills at the feet of Jura range; Geneva lake valley. I observed these beauties in two or three separate groups flying low, close to forest floor.
My second butterfly spotting this season, after the winter.
