Gatekeeper Butterfly

My Macro Monday post this week is a Gatekeeper (Pyronia tithonus), a butterfly species found in Europe. An alternative common English name is Hedge Brown.

The darker patches in the center of the forewing show this is a male. The butterfly is resting on a Bramble leaf in Faddiley near Nantwich in southern Cheshire, England.
