Mountain current in Lötschental, Switzerland (alt. 1800m). I went with Kees Ouwerkerk, Arie Ouwerkerk & Iolente Navarro to the kanton of Wallis (Valais) last week. Besides butterflies I captured also some landscapes. Here is one of them. The flower field (left on the photo) was a real butterfly paradise. Near a sloped edge a bit higher up in the field at least 6 Clouded Apollo's (Parnassius mnemosyne/Zwarte Apollo) were flying around.

* Canon EOS 5D Mark II with 17-40mm/f4 @ 19mm; ISO-50, f22, 1.3s; polarization filter and 3 stop ND soft gradient filter; from tripod.
