Silver-washed Fritillary.

My first sighting of a Silver-washed Fritillary (Argynnis paphia) this year during a stroll around the woodland glades on Bookham Common. This male was constantly on the wing and only settled briefly on two or three occasions so I was pleased to capture a decent image with a single shot.  FAB.

Linking to Saturday's Critters.


  1. Lovely image of another beautiful butterfly've had a good week!!...[;o)
    (btw. I saw my first Dark Green Fritillary of the year yesterday and my first ever Downy Emerald dragonfly the day before...a good week all round!)

  2. Gorgeous shot and a pretty butterfly. Great sighting.. Thank you for linking up with my critter party. Have a happy weekend!
