Another one from the nature reserve behind my workplace.
Not sure of the variety, probably a brown something or other.
Lovely macro shot. The blurring of the wings have so well captured the fluttering.
Nice like the simplicity of the shot.
Very Nice CB

Looks like a Meadow Brown to me, but you need Edward (Kit Monster) for a definative answer.
I'm not really seeing the focal point on the butterfly, rather is seems to be on the flower
Thanks. It was a struggle focusing at all, it was quite windy.
Lovely and simple shot. Good use of soft background and a lovely clean flower. Keith is spot on with his ID.
Thanks, I looked up the meadow brown and Keith is definately right.
Yep your right guys it is a Meadow Brown, however it is very easily to confuse it with A Gatekeeper, which is slightly smaller and has 2 white spots within the black circle on the wing and is slightly more colourfull! You've done well to catch this one with it's wings open as they very rarely settle with them open.
