Fritters for breakfast

A look for some Orchids the other morning turned up a bonus.

Warming itself in the sunshine and keeping low out of the wind was a Marsh Fritillary. This is a butterfly that became extinct in Norfolk some years ago. No doubt the individual we saw is part of some impromptu reintroduction scheme. Given the biology of the species demands interaction between a number of close colonies, I’m sceptical the Frit is here in Norfolk for good … but I hope I’m wrong. It’s a cracking butterfly!
