[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Meadow Brown is another frequent visitor to our garden. This too is a typical woodland species, commonly seen in meadows near woodlands. Just like the Ringlet it is a dark brown species (this applies to the males especially), so it often flies about unnoticed. Often we see three to five specimens in our garden at the same time. The females have a dark orange patch in their wings, the males are almost entirely dark brown. On the backside of the wings the differences are that males have less contrast than the females

Merhaba Dostum Nikos!
Tam bir renk cümbüşü içerisinde enfes bir kelebek makrosu. Seyretmesi büyük keyif veren karelerden biri bu. Çok başarılı bir çekim. Tebrikler.
