Hypparchia semele, thanks to Maurizio!
The Grayling (Hipparchia semele) is a species in the brush-footed butterfly family Nymphalidae. It sometimes occurs in coastal areas of northeast Scotland such as the Fowlsheugh Nature Reserve. It can also be found near the coast around England, such as Fire Beacon Hill. This species is often associated with bare ground and rocky hills.

A fine macro of a female Hipparchia semele in a camouflage pose. The composition on the lichen-covered rock is great and the sharpness, composition and DOF are superb in this natural-coloured, pleasing composition.
Thanks and best regards,
