I popped to my “target rich environment” for an hour this morning and got a better shot of the topside of the European Map (Araschnia levana, prorsa). Still not brilliantly sharp, but again it was rather windy, so a bit hard to focus. At least you can see the markings.

Also caught another species I hadn’t got before. This one is a Ringlet – Aphantophus hyperantus.

And there was also a kind of hoverfly on a flower that didn’t object too strongly to having its portrait done.
