[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Speckled Wood is a common butterfly and familiar to many observers, especially in woodland where, as its name suggests, it is most often found. The appearance of this butterfly changes from north to south, forming a "cline", where individuals in the north are dark brown with white spots, with those in more southerly locations being dark brown with orange spots. This has given rise to a number of named subspecies.

Hi John,
Very good photo of this Butterfly, TFS!

Hi John,
A nice capture of this speckle wood butterfly in open wings. Very good details. Thanks a lot for sharing.

John, ta photo est un peu flou, mais ce "Pararge" femelle, est assez rare, à mon avis.
je n'en ai jamais rencontré... je ne voit que les mâles...
Alors merci pour cette prise de vue
