The main purpose of this trip to the New Forest was to film butterflies.
Hoping for white admirals, I was instead surrounded by dozens of silver-washed fritillaries, more than I have ever seen before.
The last video shows the butterfly's very smart upper surface, but it is from the green and silver under surface that the butterfly gets its name.
The male butterfly is brighter orange, and a bit smaller.
Here you can see both male and female together.
Just after I had filmed this pair a grey butterfly appeared - the very rare "valezina" form of the female silver-washed fritillary.
In this first sequence the butterfly was chased off by a huge hornet.
Luckily the hornet soon left this great rarity alone and I was able to get some close-up shots.
