Heath Fritillary

By NigelKiteley
Thankyou to everyone who voted and commented on the Black Veined White, much appreciated.

A break from the Spanish butterflies today, but another lifer for me. Pete Withers and myself think we photographed them in Spain last week but we're not 100% sure, so yesterday the two of us along with Ray Seagrove went down to East Blean Woods near Canterbury in search of this stunning Fritillary. It was well worth the 300 mile round trip as we saw dozens of them and they were relatively easy to photograph, which made a nice change.

As you well know I don't like these underwing shots(I'm not jealous or anything).

Well done mate perhaps the next time I will succeed with one of these!

Outstanding once again Nigel.....The trouble with your butterfly images is there are not enough superlatives to describe them all.

Well done again.....Ade
