Small Heath

Small Heath
A small heath butterfly settled on Leasowe Common. Despite some similarity in underwing patterns it cannot possibly be mistaken for a meadow brown due to its small size. It also keeps its wings firmly shut - I have never seen the upper side of a living small heath!

Thanks Pam. They're very pretty little butterflies with that russet running through to the topside - but unfortunately in life they keep their wings firmly shut.

Many thanks. One of my discoveries when I started macro is that some butterflies are very hairy!
