Dark Green Fritillaries on Rodborough Common

Dark Green Fritillaries were on the wing on the south side of windy Rodborough Common yesterday. I photographed two and there seemed to be a third flying about. One obliging individual kept returning to feed on some thistles in a sheltered mini-quarry which he clearly reckoned was his territory since he kept chasing the Marbled Whites away.
