Zygaena filipendulae

I do not have much knowledge of insects and such, but I love this photo because of the subject and also because of its colors. Please, whoever knows what is the correct name of this species, please let me know in comments. Thank you in advance!

The photo is interesting but perhaps not so representative. My best guess is Zygaena lonicerae (aas-verikireslane in Estonian) or some of its close relatives.

Thanks, this indeed is Zygaena filipendulae (verikireslane). They are a kind of butterflies.
