Dark Green Fritillaries

I thought the overcast conditions today might give some hope of close-ups of Dark Green Fritillaries which normally hurtle around too much in sunshine. Was pleased therefore to encounter a pair on the Moleskin section at Sharpenhoe Clappers. I still had to creep up on them very slowly though having put them to flight twice using a normal degree of stealth! The female is on the left.
