This picture is very old and I don't know where I took it.

This butterfly is very common throughout most of Europe and I am not sure why I have so few pictures of it! The underside is quite constant in appearance though the upperside may vary from being almost entirely dark, without eyespots, to having conspicuous 'ringlets' like those on the underside.
