A big thank you to Mike_Young and KarenFB for their UA's and to everyone else for the votes and comments on yesterday's Niobe Fritillary, all are greatly appreciated.

Here's a female Marsh Fritillary from the same trip. She was perched right on top of a flower and was concealing the stem directly beneath her, creating the illusion that she is "floating".

A cracking close up of this marsh fritillary Nigel, this one looks to be in mint condition. You've captured her colours and wing patterns in such intricate detail.
