Speckled Wood Butterfly

by trixie

I was lucky enough to be in the woods today and this lovely moth just settled down long enough to take this shot, I thought it was a Woodland Brown Moth but now thanks to Cliff I know its a Spekled Wood Butterfly.

Well thank you so much, I wasn't too sure, I looked it up in a Moth and Butterfly Book and the Speckled wood was on the same page, so thank you for that. I will change its title now, Cheers Trixie
