Pearl bordered Fritillary on Bugle flower

By neil john
This butterfly appears to be abundant this year due to the warm and early Spring. The butterfly appears to love the nectar of the bugle. The image was shot in natural light with the help of the Nikon DR6 for low level work. The lens was the magical Micronikkor 200mm f4 AFED The image was taken in the Wyre forest (Shropshire)-a haven for wildlife.
