Silver-washed fritillary      Argunnis paphia

Observation - Silver-washed fritillary Argunnis paphia - UK and Ireland. Description: This was my first observation of a fritillary butterfly. I have studied the patterns to the wing markings and colouration around the abdomen and compared them to a field guide. The markings suggest a Silver-washed fritillary.
