Though the Gatekeeper is somewhat worn out, it still makes a strong impression in your picture, Anne.
The top perspective shows the colours and markings on its wings quite clearly.
Thanks and regards.

It seems like it is looking at you. Taken from a pleasing top POV. Excellent sharpness and beautiful natural colours.

Very beautiful although it does look a bit worn out as Ram says. What is it doing sitting on the stones? Is it taking some precipitate? I like your choice of portrait format here. Enjoy what is left of the weekend. Best wishes.

Je viens de vérifier, car moi aussi j'ai eu un doute, mais tu as bien raison.
Ton papillon est "Pyronia tithonus", et c'est une femelle.
Comme dit Luciano, il n'est pas facile ŕ photographier ouvert.
Alors : bravo.
je te souhaite un bon dimanche

Looks like this worn out soldier has spent quite a few days on the wing. It may be a little tattered and torn, but it is still a beautiful butterfly. I like the color of it's wings, orange trimmed in brown with those two black eye spots.
