Two trips to two brand new sites to find two brand new species and I had success at both.

Here's the first - Duke of Burgundy Fritillary photographed at the frighteningly small single location in Kent where they can be found.

About the size of a Common Blue, but unlike Blue's they are about the most co-operative butterfly species I have ever photographed!

A rather good weekend all round for butterflies, dragonflies and damselflies. And due to the success of this weekend I'm now planning trips to find another 2 new species now!

Fabulous image here John, I'm afraid we didn't get that much in Crete while we were there, well not on the butterfly front anyway. But we did manage one or two which we haven't recorded for ourselves before, too busy getting birds of prey etc.....LOL

I've no doubt I'll post something in the near future, but at the moment I'm busy working my way through about 20GB of RAW files....Argggghhhhh!

Regards, Ade

Cooperative...?
They rarely open there wings as much as here.
Mine from Ĝland, Sweden last year wouldnt get in focus with both wings.
Sċ this is an extraordinary photo. In my eyes.
