Borboleta, no castelo de Arraiolos Butterfly, near Arraiolos

Notes:

I don´t know nothing about this butterfly, i just found it flying in the Arraiolos Castle...and suddenly she stopped for the photos... Não sei nada acerca desta espécie... encontrei-a a voar no Castelo de Arraiolos... e de repente lá posou para a foto...
