Gatekeeper butterfly

Gatekeeper butterflies take to the wing in the height of summer when blackberry flowers are at their best. The nectar provides a valuable food source for these butterflies, which are commonly found around hedgerows and field gates, giving a clue to the origin of their common names: gatekeeper and hedge brown. The males have a dark brown patch of scent-producing scales on the forewing, used to attract females during courtship. Gatekeepers are common and widespread in Europe, and the British Isles has its own subspecies (britanniae).
