Camberwell season

The best season for Camberwell Beauties (Nymphalis antiopa) have just started up here in the Swedish forest and fresh specimen of this large and striking butterfly is flying along forest tracks and in clearings. Every now and then they turn up in my garden as well to feed on rotting fruit among Red Admirals and Commas. This one even landed on the handle to my rucksack for a while.
