Another current butterfly species to emerge and look out for, the Meadow Brown.
I found these earlier in the week. Not a particularly colourful species, but nonetheless interesting to see and study.
Interestingly this male below has been joined by a species of the Longhorn Beetle, the Wasp Beetle (Clytus arietis).
The Wasp Beetle's markings are designed to protect it from predators as they imitate a real wasp.
It does not sting however and oddly enough the males are vegetarian, but the females not so.
It can be found from May through to July.
