All these pictures are taken in Switzerland, between about 1600m and 2000m. The blind ringlet is very easy to identify as all the spots are quite blind - that is, lacking black pupils. Within its Alpine range it is reasonably common. I have no idea why I have no good pictures of this species - something to correct in 2014!
