[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Silver-washed Fritillary (Argynnis paphia) is a European species of butterfly, which was in decline for much of the 1970s and 1980s but seems to be coming back to many of its old territories.
The Silver-washed fritillary is deep orange with black spots on the upper side of its wings and has a wingspan of 54-70 mm, with the male being smaller and paler than the female. The underside is green and unlike other fritillaries has silver streaks instead of silver spots, hence the name silver-washed. The caterpillar is black-brown with two yellow lines along its back and long reddish-brown spines.

Very nice shot Rimantas. The perspective makes the butterfly look like part of the flower. I like the gentle colours and it looks good centered the way it is. The background is a relaxed one that goes well. A nicely layed out shot. TFS Trevor
