You seem to have covered so much in the last two or three years, Pete. Which are the species you haven't yet covered satisfactorily?
Cryptic Wood White, Heath Fritillary, Mountain Ringlet, Painted Lady (!), Pearl-bordered Fritillary and Wood White.
Most of these are "simply" planning and effort. However, Mountain Ringlet and Painted Lady will, I think, be the most problematic since they're unpredictable. I know from personal experience just how challenging the former is, and the latter depends on the 2018 migration year. Also, this isn't just about sourcing images - it's about personal observations and photos that we often forget to take (at least I do!) of nectar sources, larval food plants and habitat.
