Female Gatekeeper

By DerekL
Taken today on a Buddleia Bush in my back garden.
Just returned from holiday and it was good to see a few butterflies flying around at last.

Thanks to Mickyr for the ID

Great detail and colour Derek, bet it was a relief to get back to some sunshine after your holiday in wet and dull Torquay, strangely enough the weather did improve as soon as you left Wink
Regards,
Geoff.

Thanks for that Geoff.
Looks like the rain is coming back with vengeance this week-end. Have you been on the Wheel at the pavilion in Torquay yet?
