Another Scarlet Tiger

Russel and I had an enjoyable time surveying at the lovely little Dolau Hirion farm, NW of Llandeilo, today. We saw four Marsh Fritillaries in their rhos pasture, as well as numerous Five-spot Burnets, a Painted Lady and the hoverfly Microdon myrmicae. But best of all was this pristine Scarlet Tiger flying in their hay field as we walked back to the farmhouse.



On the neighbouring farm we failed to turn up Marsh Fritillaries, but saw more Microdon and a Small Pearl-bordered Fritillary.
