Marsh Fritillary's at Ninestones

Marsh Fritillary. ......Eurodryas aurinia.
Although I was pleased enough with the image I do realise that the somewhat cluttered backdrop draws the eyes away from the main subjects.


  1. Trevor, you are a genius, the Marsh Fritillaries. They are superb.

  2. This is a very good photo! Karma Sutra position no:48 possibly?? I love the blue flowers of Germander Speedwell below the mating subjects too!

  3. Thanks Bob. I am just an average Joe who gets lucky now and again...I sure wish I was a genius.
    Comment appreciated Thanks

  4. Hi Lee.
    A warm welcome to the blog and thanks for stopping by and taking time to make a comment. Much appreciated

    All the credit should go to John Nicholls who found them and was kind enough to show us.
    I was happy enough with my photograph..but Steve Rogers showed us how a professional operates and his resulting images are a must for all the purists out there.

    You could well be right ..but I am only up to no:27 and running out of time ;-)

  5. Excellent Trevor. I'll have to travel west sometime to see these beauties. FAB.
