The Dark Green Fritillary (Speyeria aglaja) is a butterfly of the Nymphalidae family. Wingspan: 50-57 mm. It is often seen, on pastures and flowery banks, and nearby areas where the preferred foodplants for the larvae, Viola canina and Viola riviniana, grow. The Dark Green Fritillary uses violets within Bracken mosaics frequently consisting of one-third Bracken and two-thirds grass, often on the edges of suitable High Brown Fritillary habitat. Their distribution can be found on the nbn website here.

Hi Olgierd,

The orange against the dark bg makes the butterfly stand out from it. The sharpness on the head could be better, but good use of thel light.
