A Butterfly

Lasiommata maera

I don't know what it is, a Lasiommata megera maybe? Sitting there on a window at Danuta's place. I was helping my neighbours with a computer thingy when I noticed the butterfly. Very beautiful creatures if you ask me.

Actually, I'm pretty sure this is a moth. Butterflies have very narrow bodies; moths have thicker bodies and feathery antennae. Very beautiful! Great shot!
