Its been a great journey which we have loved following and the last instalment was quite exceptional and must have been an amazing way to compleat with that sunset. That is how to do it... and you did.
Well done. :clap: :clap:

:clap: A truly wonderful report! :clap:

Congratulations on bagging the 282. Planned to finish my round on Slioch also, but this has me drooling to do it sooner! :lol:

Not sure your butterfly is a Small Pearl-bordered Fritillary. The rear rim of the wings would have light coloured dashes if it were. I'm more inclined to suggest that it is a Dark Green Fritillary (referring to a greenish underside of the wings, not it's obvious orange topside). :wink:

Your version of 'decent' is somewhat of an understatement with respect to your photos.
Absolutely brilliant.

Well done on your completion that man.

Very well done, rockhopper :clap:

A very apt way to finish, have enjoyed reading of your adventures along the way (from the high 100's, at least).

All the best for whatever challenge lies ahead.
