White-legged Damsels.

I have previously posted images here of immature White-legged Damselflies (Platycnemis pennipes) and on my main blog that I discovered last month close to Flag Pond on my local woodland butterfly transect. 

Today I finally managed to find both the adult forms resting in the grassy area close to the muddy pond.

 An adult female (above) and the adult male (below).

Silver-washed Fritillary.

Had just one brief opportunity yesterday morning to snap a male Silver-washed Fritillary (Argynnis paphia) before it recommenced its territorial sorties. FAB.
