More SWF!

 A second Silver Washed Fritillary was found today. This time a male and in much better condition.
 It was constantly flying between the Buddleia and chasing other large butterflies, no doubt looking for a mate.
 Black streaks on the upper forewing indicate a male.
 Not a pristine specimen, but interesting to think that we have had both sexes in the same area.
