Photogaphy Contest, Honorable Mention.

Pyronia tithonus, gatekeeper butterfly. The photographer writes, "This photograph was taken at my garden in Rotherham, S. Yorkshire, UK. I noticed that the under wing of this gatekeeper is not the same as other photos of gatekeeper butterflies. It is sitting on an Echinacea."
