CRANBERRY FRITILLARY Boloria aquilonaris

 

 

·         There were relatively few insects (or other wildlife for that matter) to be seen during a brief visit to Hemsedal in Norway but the photographer did manage to locate a colony of Cranberry Fritillaries Boloria aquilonaris and he was able to photograph this freshly emerged and therefore very compliant example (note the exudate in the final photograph). Worthwhile indeed as they have very beautiful markings on their undersides.
