Mountain garlic
Mountain garlic (Allium montanum, syn Allium senescens L. subsp. montanum)
is common flower of mountains in SW Pannonian basin,
often found at lower altitudes,
as it is case here with Mt. Strahincica at 600m

Blooming early summer through mid fall,
its handsome clusters with rounded small purple flower heads
are very popular with butterflies
(the one in the pic above is European Peacock).

This is an amazing butterfly picture. I've never seen one with such coloration, just absolutely beautiful.

Thank you.
Picture is about flora, but
butterfly was reluctant to move away (8-)

Some say it was peacock that did inspired Kandinsky for this painting

Hard to tell whether Kandinsky ever had an opportunity to see it in the real world, though...

Hvala Marija.
S druge strane krila su im jednobojno smedja
pa ne pasu toliko uz brdski luk
lijep pozdrav
