Many thanks for the votes and comments on yesterday's Spotted Fritillary, and a special thanks to looloobey for the UA, all are very much appreciated.

A break from the Spanish butterflies today, a female Marbled White on Scabious captured during yesterday's trip to Twywell with Adrian (tomcat) and Ray Seagrove. The weather didn't play ball in the morning so unfortunately we didn't get a sniff of a Purple Emperor. So after lunch we headed for Twywell and Adrian very kindly showed us his spot for the Marbled Whites. Inbetween some brief bright spells the Marbled Whites just settled, enabling many photo opportunities.

Cheers for showing us your great little spot Adrian, i'm sure we'll meet again soon as i'll probably be back for another bash at these wonderful butterflies Grin.

A very beautiful example of macro wildlife photography, which for me has all the right ingredients, to make such a great photograph.

The detail and clarity are first class Nigel, glad to hear that the day went well. There are plenty of marbled whites and dark green fritillaries on Prestbury Hill at the moment and if you plan on shooting them again, it is well worth heading that way, Lou can vouch for that as well.
