Moments to treasure
Possibly a gatekeeper but I am not certain.
Nice capture! 🙂 I think it may be a Meadow Brown.
Thank you. I think it is 🙂
You’re welcome….I have only recently (within the last week) learned to determine these 2 species due their abundance at this particular time. 🙂
Hi Joyce, it is a Meadow Brown. I think that this is one of, if not “the” most common butterfly in the UK and the one that I find hardest to get close to. Not just this month but year in year out, they are very flitty animals. This butterfly is not half as pretty as it thinks it is 🙂 That is a great capture 😉
Thanks for the id Colin. I am just getting to know butterflies and dragonflies.
A really wonderful close up shot here.
