Speckled Wood Butterfly (Pararge aegeria)

I photographed this in a meadow just outside the woodlands of the Fruska Gora National Park. The edge of woods is its prime habitat and it is commonly found throughout Europe. In Serbian, it is known as Šumski pegavac. The Speckled Wood species is a member of the sub family “the browns,” which belongs to the Brush-footed Butterflies. We were in a meadow near Bukovac, Serbia, which is near Novi Sad.
