Silver-washed Fritillary

 

The Silver-washed Fritillary is our largest fritillary and the orange-hued male is often seen flying in woodland glades, though this one was filmed along the tree-lined edge of the Snodbrook some distance from woods.

The silver-washed in the name refers to the underside of the wings.

    A wonderful video. Silver washed fritillaries appear to be doing well in Sidmouth this year. Was this a particularly windy day? Sounds like it.
