Small Tortoiseshell with its wings folded. I was struck by the difference in colour. Folded like this makes them a far less attraction to predators - isn't nature wonderful as to how creatures have evolved in the art of self-protection and survival. I know you see these everyday but its the thought and understanding of evolution behind them that is so amazing. Darwin's evolutionary process at work-living proof. Thanks to everyone for comments and votes on yesterdays image. Very much appreciated.
