Did you get other photographs

Did you get other photographs showing the underwing?
I think you need to see the underside to confirm it is the Small Pearl-bordered Fritillary rather than the Pearl-bordered Fritillary

They are much easier to ID

They are much easier to ID from an underside shot, but can be done from the upperside. I think this is SPBF, but it would be great to see an underside shot to confirm - I don't think Small Pearl has been recorded in that area for a while now

Record your ladybird sightings!

Unfortunately I was unable to get an underwing shot. SPBF are fairly common on the Lizard Peninsula, although perhaps not specifically at Caerthillian.
