Observation - Parnassius apollo - Global. Description: White butterfly with black and red spots. A commonly encountered alpine butterfly according to Matt

White butterfly with black and red spots. A commonly encountered alpine butterfly according to Matt Rowlings website http://www.eurobutterflies.com/sp/apollo.php
pictured at 2500 metres.
The butterfly is 5 o'clock from the red-flowered clover. It flew away when the camera was placed closer; seaweeds don't do that, I'm pleased to say.
