Marsh Fritillary on the Lizard, Cornwall

This evening I managed to see about 30 Marsh Fritillary in strong, low sunlight.  One or two were quite docile as they sunbathed in the last rays of warmth - ideal for close viewing and composed photography. Below are some images from this evening.  (ps. apologies for featuring the two Common Blues in the Brown Argus post last night).

  1. Steve, those are lovely - and congratulations on finding a pristine female as a cooperative subject. All mine so far this year have been males.

  2. Like little stain glass windows, stunning macro photography

  3. Thanks for the positive comments. Steve
