White Admiral.

Last week I saw my first Silver-washed Fritillary for this year, somewhat earlier than expected, flitting through a woodland glade but it was a male White Admiral (Limenitis camilla) that also made my day as it perched on a fern during a short sunny interlude.


N.B. This is a scheduled post but I will respond to any comments when we return from Cumbria.  FAB.

  7. Beautiful photos Frank! A lovely butterfly which I have only ever seen once (not this year) and only very briefly.

    I loved the delightful juvenile gull photos on the previous post. I thought in the one captioned 'Up and away at last' that it had a look of incredulity/fear in its eye as if it couldn't quite believe it was actually doing it :)

    Have a safe and happy trip.

  13. I have yet to see one of those beauties Frank. In fact there is a real lack of flutters hereabouts at the moment.
