Dark Green Fritillary

By NigelKiteley
Thanks for all the votes and comments on the Iberian Marbled White i uploaded yesterday, very much appreciated as always.

Here's another fritillary from my favourite meadow in Miraflores in Spain. This time it's a pristine Dark Green Fritillary photographed last month, the ninth species of fritillary that i've seen in the meadow

I'm lucky enough to be escaping this appalling English summer tomorrow when i return to Spain for a week, hope the weather breaks for you guys whilst i'm away.

A fantastic capture Nigel, the detail and colours are flawless. I saw a number of these this afternoon at Prestbury Hill, a brief spell of sunshine brought the butterflies out in good numbers. I look forward to seeing pictures of lots more species i've never seen or heard of when you return from Spain.
