Heath Fritillary

I managed to visit Luckett in the week to see the Heath Fritillary.  The weather has been poor this week but Thursday bucked the trend and was eventually good enough to bring out a few insects.  Heath Fritillary is one of the rarer butterfly's in the UK and likewise is restricted to just a couple sites in south east Cornwall.  Luckett is specifically managed as a nature reserve on behalf of the Duchy of Cornwall. 

The images were taken with flash as the light wasn't bright enough. More images can be found on my flicker site HERE
