Above is a picture I took last month of a butterfly in the polytunnel. It looks like
it may be a Fritillary of some sort. Any ideas? http://www.britishbutterflies.co.uk/asp/families.asp is a really helpful site that helps you identify British butterflies, but I'm still not a hundred per cent sure what it is! Sadly, butterflies are on the decline (like our honey bees) due to the destruction of habitats and pollution, so it's a rare treat to see one up close like this in the garden.
