Small Tortoiseshell Aglais urticae Butterfly

Photography Anston, Dinnington, Sheffield, South Yorkshire, North Nottinghamshire and UK

I thought this was a red admiral butterfly until I saw the lovely blue markings along the wing.  This would have been a perfect shot if it hadn’t been for the blade of grass obscuring the view.  The meadowland down the side of my property is encouraging Bees and Butterflies.
