Dark-green Fritillary at Perranporth dunes

These shots were taken yesterday evening, which is the only time of day that seems to be the best to get anywhere near this species.  Dark-greens are strong fliers and only need a hint of sunshine to fly around.  The species is locally common in Cornwall with the north coastal regions being the best eg Gwithian towans, Perranporth dunes and around the Camel Estuary.
