What a super colour. I am so happy I can see these photos here as I live in city and don't get any visitors to my feeder.

There are already some butterflies of Switzerland, not specially from the high alpine region, but prealpine, like these ones (and others, and more will certainly follow...):

Your about me says you are from Switzerland? You must post some spottings from the Swiss Alps!

Thanks Emma. In the montane cloud forests you have even the greater diversity than in the lowlands.
