This is an odd-numbered year, so there are a lot of Erebia ligea butterflies flying around. Next year, there will be larvae. Some Erebia ligea were rather worn already, others much more dark and colorful.

In the third photograph there is a butterfly which I didn't manage to identify. It should be a common one, and possible related to the Erebia genus, but so far I couldn't determine what it is.

The butterfly in the third photograph is Aphantopus hyperantus, a common one. It is lighter than usual, that is why I didn't realize what it was at once.
