Queen of Spain Fritillary/ Storplettet Perlemorssommerfugl

Isn't it a beautiful little creature this butterfly - the English name Queen of Spain gives it a perfect image. This fritillary might give the inspiration for a gold jewel with blue sapphires from Cartier or for a luxurious evening gown by John Galliano.
