Butterfly at dusk

This butterfly was sipping the last sweet nectar ….

Butterfly - butterfly at dusk 

*This butterfly has similar markings to a fritillary – its spots are in line and it has a wingspan of approximately 6 cm – and resembles a High Brown Fritillary (Argynnis adippe) which usually lives on the edges of woodland – more common in the South of England but extends throughout the whole of England and Wales. It’s usual wingspan is from 5.5 cm but occasionally the odd one extends to just over 6 cm.

Looks like some heavy rain coming in soon. That butterfly needs to find some shelter from the storm.

Relating to the comment above..I wonder where butteries go when it rains. Nice pic, been a while since I have seen a butterfly.
