Marsh Fritillary

The first part of a three part Post of butterflies observed over two days at the foothill of the Cerne Abbas Giant, Dorset.

A lot is made about the Duke of Burgundy Butterfly which is shown in the second post. 
However, I think the Marsh Fritillary butterfly shown below is much prettier to look at.


  1. Yep, that's a cracking little butterfly Roy, and you've got some lovely images there. I must admit to being just a little envious...okay, a lot envious! I guess I'll just have to be content with having some DoB's close by. ...[;0)

    1. Thanks Trevor. I think I have missed the main flight of DOB's this year.

  2. You're definitely in the right place for butterflies down there. Exquisite little creature.

  3. Hi Roy,
    Wow! that is a stunning beauty!!
    Great shots!
    Regards, Maria
