Gatekeeper on Euonymus


Gatekeeper on Euonymus

He stayed for enough time for a photo - unlike the Red Admiral, who didn't!

I don't think they are rare? Watch out, and you might well see one!

Good pic... butterfly contrasting well with the euonymus background..

If anybody's still interested after 6 years, the butterfly is not rare and is a Gatekeeper. We get them sometimes around here. Its a lovely photo - so hard to catch butterflies on camera as they seem to know and fly off at the crucial moment...
