[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Notes: A widespread fritillary preferring a forest environment. Like many other similar species its caterpillars eat Violets. The Silver washed fritillary lays its eggs on a nearby tree, and the caterpillars make their way to the foodplant when they hatch next Spring.

Pictured above is a female, whilst the male (below right) has more curved wings, is brighter orange and has dark bands across its forewings, actually scent marks
