This almost immaculate female Dark Green Fritillary was found at Melbury Down by Dave Law. He believes and we agree with him that the butterfly had only just emerged hours before. Dave adds that after sunning itself for a few moments, it flew off very clumsily before being chased by several males, disappearing shortly after. Photo taken on 13/07/2016.
