This one I found without help in the Haute Savoie. Strangely, at the very same site and time of year two years earlier, it was nowhere to be seen. When it did show itself, I saw it in several places, and was gifted some reasonable photo opportunities.

 

The male is in the upper left butterfly photo, the female lower left, and her underside is depicted to the right.
