      Silver Washed Fritillary


 
 

 

These examples were found in the woods near Speechhouse Lake in the Forest of Dean, July 2010. One had suffered a chunk out of its wing but seemed none the worse for it.  Clearly they like thistles.

This is a duller silver washed fritillary and thus a female.
