I have only ever seen one at a time on the farm, this is a female Silver-washed Fritillary (I've only seen her once this year!).

Unfortunately, she wouldn't pose nicely and I knew I had to be quick.

The second version is especially for Rachel - I was going to hit the delete button and she said "Oh, I like that one!" Rachel, here it is! Tongue

I suppose that V1 is conventionally better but I love the backlighting through the farthest wing in V2.

I like V 2. Maybe it's my screen but the subject in V 1 seems a littte over exposed.

V1 is excellent Karen, you've captured some wonderful detail and colours. The fritillaries are always difficult to capture as they are so flighty and never stay still for long and often settle high up in trees.
