I found an open area in some woodland where the Marbled White was quite abundant mainly on the blackberry flowers.

Lovely detail Tony. I don’t think I have ever seen one of these butterflies before.
Thanks Simon. It’s odd but I saw very few of these outside of this one small area of woodland despite walking round the surrounding fields almost daily. They were in abundance for a couple of weeks then just as quickly disappeared with only the odd one to be seen after that.
They are very noticable with there b&w patterns. I just wish they were up here in Shropshire.
I have usually seen these in little colonies. They seem to stick to a small area, part of a field or a glade and don’t travel far. They are strikingly beautiful and so reminiscent of summer. The white blossom compliments this shot perfectly.
I have to say I was quite stunned by the number of these in this small open area of wood, it was a truly magical place for a short time. There were also quite a few Small Skipper and Meadow Browns but I am struggling to find a decent shot of a skipper to post. I have one but it may have to be significantly cropped.
Excellent work here. Great shot!
Thanks Carlos, much appreciated.
Beautiful work!!! : )
Thanks very much.
Tony, I think we’re even now, I’ve not seen one of these over here in PA, and it’s gorgeous!!! Also this is a fave for me, so beautifully presented my friend!
Thanks. I was lucky enough to see a Fritillary whilst on a walk in some old woodland (24/7/10) I managed a few shots before it disappeared but not brilliant. They are quite rare here and you will probably only see one at certain sites. The butterfly preservation society in the UK does a good job of preserving their habitat.http://www.butterfly-conservation.org/
Thank you very much.
This is still a fave for me, the colors in this are exquisite!
