Dark Green Fritillary

By NigelKiteley
Many thanks for all the votes and comments on the Marsh Fritillary, always appreciated.

This stunning female Dark Green Fritillary was photographed in Buckinghamshire last summer. She was warming up on ragwort in the early morning sunshine which brought out the beautiful purple sheen that only seems to occur in the females.

What a stunning shot of this beautiful butterfly Nigel, you've captured her wing patterns and colours in such intricate detail. This species fared very well at Prestbury Hill last summer, there were great numbers of these on the wing throughout July and the first week of August
