Gatekeeper Butterfly

By DerekL  
Thank you for the votes/comments on my previous upload of a Broad-bodied Chaser, especially to Adrian Kennerley (tomcat) for his valued User Award, all much appreciated.

Went for an enjoyable walk in the sun around Goscote Valley with my daughter this afternoon, lots of butterflies flitting around, including this Male Gatekeeper.
