On the Wall

By Glostopcat  
My contribution to "Shadow Saturday", a wall brown butterfly resting on a wall on the seafront at Weston-Super-Mare in Somerset. This one was taken near the old Birnbeck Peir back in late August, some of you may recognise it as a variant which I uploaded for Shadow Saturday last week.

Parts of the wall colour coordinate nicely with the wing colour, Ed: good strong shadow cast too.

As for rarity I usually see these in reasonably good numbers at both Crickley and Leckhampton Hill close to where I live, but sadly not this yearSad

Colour coordinated with a strong shadow. Who says blokes can't multi-task.
