Two trips to two brand new sites to find two brand new species and I had success at both.
Here's the first - Duke of Burgundy Fritillary photographed at the frighteningly small single location in Kent where they can be found.
About the size of a Common Blue, but unlike Blue's they are about the most co-operative butterfly species I have ever photographed!
A rather good weekend all round for butterflies, dragonflies and damselflies. And due to the success of this weekend I'm now planning trips to find another 2 new species now!
