A welcome break in the weather

Yesterday was the first reasonable day for some time.  I decided to visit Penhale and check for any local specialities that might just be on the wing. In dry but dull conditions, I was surprised to find at least 20 Dark Green Fritillary, 150 plus Silver-studded Blues and six Large Skippers.  Even up to 8pm, the males were busy chasing females in their quest to ensure the colony survives another season.

The images below were taken with Nikon 200mm F4 Macro, Nikon 600 flash and all tripod mounted.
