[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Meadow brown - Maniola jurtina - Family: Satyridae.
The male's upperside is dark brown with a single black eye-spot surrounded by orange. The female is larger and brighter with the orange extending into the hindwing. Eggs are laid amongst grasses. The caterpillars are green and covered in fine white hairs, feeding by day when young, hibernating through winter and feeding again by night the following spring.
