Small Heath???? or..........Meadow Brown??

By Louise_Morris    
Taken earlier today at Swelshill Bank. I think it's a SMall Heath but last time I thought that everyone said it was a Meadow Brown!! What do I know?? This one was very small and very skittish.

Thanks for the C&C's on my Demoiselle - always appreciated greatly.
Special thanks to Trev (Achieverswales) & Ed (Glostopcat) for their UA's - really appreciate them.

Hope you've all had a good weekend,

Take care,

It is indeed and a fine shot of one too! They are never easy to photograph as they settle so low down in the long grass

A lovely image, Lou - you're lucky it kept still long enough to snap it!

A nice early one, very well captured, a tricky subject this particular little butterfly.

Lovely image Louise.
Maybe would benefit from an increase in sharpening, to get the full detail captured by the camera?
