A cracking afternoon butterfly spotting out of the window. Apart from Holly Blues, Large & Small Whites, Red Admiral, Speckled Wood, & lots of Gatekeepers - this Silver-washed Fritillary female turned up feeding on the privet flowers (we don't cut the hedges until late spring). Graham was lucky to get shots of her. :D Jean & Graham

Hi Jean and Graham,

Well done. That's a species I've always wanted to see in our garden. Nice images.

Thanks Nigel, we were amazed as we've never had one before. A keen butterfly watcher that we know said that Silver-washed frits. are having a very good year; there must be many of them for one to wander this way. :D Jean

Thanks Linda, a real compliment from you :D All the photos of this butterfly were taken through the double glazed window - I depend on Graham's skills. ;) Jean
