Silver-washed Fritillary, Argynnis paphia today in The Long Plantation, Kingswood, Surrey.
This butterfly was flying fast up and down the glade. It was joined by a second one. One then flew in a straight line just above our heads, while the second one circled it in a fast-flying corkscrew flight.
It was spectacular. Then they were gone.
