A silver-washed fritillary at the base of the Demut ascent. The latin name is Argynnis (Argynnis) paphia but is as meaningless as the English one to me. The German name "Kaisermantel" means "Emperor's Robe" and this is something I can deal with ;-) Sept 21st 2004

... und sehr schwer zu fotografieren, weil die Kerlchen echt nicht stillsitzen können. Und weil sie ziemlich gross sind, sind sie mit ein, zwei Flügelschlägen ganz woanders.

Thanks again. It's my only photo of this kind of butterfly. They are just soooo shy. This one wasn't and I was lucky the photo turned out so good.
