[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a majestic insect, the true aristocrat among the fritillaries. Although reasonably common in woodland throughout Europe, it is always arresting, commanding attention as it swoops and soars along rides or feeds on nectar sources. The green female form generally occurs in fixed proportion in particular communities, but the ratio varies from almost zero (near me in Switzerland, for example) to 50:50, as in the site in Provence where I photographed the one above

Hi John,

This is certainly an inspirational image of a Silver Washed Fritillary. The green background contrasts nicely with the frit and was perfect for this nice composition.
TFS and have anice WE!


Well done, John.
Well applied DOF generating an overall sharp insect.
