Thanks for all the votes and comments on the Marbled Fritillary, very much appreciated as always.
This little stunner is a male Scarce Copper. I have wanted a good open wing shot of this amazing little butterfly ever since Piluca showed me them 3 years ago, and finally i nailed one in the meadow in Miraflores.
Flying home this afternoon and tomorrow i'm meeting up with Ray Seagrove and Tomcat to try and find Purple Emperors, though looking at the weather forecast that's going to be quite a challenge!
