Meadow Brown Butterfly

By Holmewood
Thank you so much for the votes and comments on my last upload. Special thanks to Jeff (kojack), Fred (Badgerfred) and Bob (bobpaige1) for your smashing User Awards.

We went up to the hide today and it was very quite. The Spotted Flycatchers came back and I decided to try and get nearer and ended up kneeling on stinging nettles - not a good idea and I still haven't checked to see if it was worth it. Popped into the nature reserve next door and was well pleased to catch this Meadow Brown (please correct me if I am wrong). Hope you like it.

Have a great afternoon and evening.

Cathy and Stan

I can't tell these apart, Cathy.
Could it be a Gatekeeper?
Good shot - sorry about the knees!

Very well caught Cathy. The only time I really ever caught a butterfly, was when I was a kid, and with a net.

A superb image, Cathy.javascript:;
Stunning detail, dof & bg.
Nettles are a pain Sad
