Weather permitting I shall hopefully over the weekend be paying visits to Abbots Wood in East Sussex for Pearl bordered Fritillary, a butterfly I have never seen and more locally, the Duke of Burgundy at Denge Woods near Canterbury. A few Dukes have been seen in the last few days which prompted me to have a look at some old photos taken back in 2006 with a Nikon Coolpix 7600 digital camera. This was one of my first cameras and still today, I am very happy with these shots and these will be hard to match I think. The weather does not look great at the moment for the weekend but I just hope I get the chance to see the Pearl Bordered Fritillary and maybe a shot or two of them. In the meantime here are a few Duke of Burgundy shots.
