Small Pearl-bordered Fritillary now on the wing

Paul Tyrrell wrote 'With early summer here, so too is the second of the Gower Fritillaries. The Small Pearl-bordered Fritillary, (Boloria selene) is sadly less common than it once was, Although it can still be found in most parts of Wales. On Gower there are still a few colonies on some of our Commons; these photos were taken on Fairwood.
