Caroline takes us back to the halcyon days of Summer with this photo of mating Silver -washed Fritillaries which she came across on 14/07/19 at Alners Gorse.

A large bright butterfly with a graceful flight which is a delight to watch as it swoops and glides along woodland glades ,stopping to feed on brambles and other flowers between May -September in one brood.
