Silver Washed Fritillary   Argynnis paphia

Argynnis paphia

This butterfly flies in some places in the UK but to my surprise it was abundant in these regions. The buddleia on which this male had settled was full of Silver Washed Fritillaries and no other species although many others were seen during the day.
