Orange and dark brown butterfly with open wings

Silver-washed Fritillary,ab. Photo: Paul Swann

Paul had a good visit to Alners Gorse on 1/07/19 as he found this Silver-Washed Fritillary aberration whilst photographing Hairstreaks. He says he has seen thousands of this species including many (f) Valesinas, but never one like this.
