I've had some chauffering duties this weekend in that I've taken J home to his Mum for the weekend and then visited my Mother about six miles away so - a tad busy and not any time for any pictures. Back down to the sea front to collect my young lodger and home again for the last full week at school.
I think my camera may have seized up or is in it's bag sulking because it's not been taken out much recently! This has more to do with the weather and traffic than any other restrictions.
However, after an abysmal day yesterday in that it rained all day long, this morning dawned bright and sunny and a flutter took full advantage of this to visit the hydrangeas in my mother's front garden.
HOWEVER, what is it? I've looked in the books and I'm undecided - I think (!) it's a Gatekeeper but on the other hand is it a meadow brown? The marking on the upper wings suggests Gatekeeper but the underside ???
Apart from cropping I've not edited the pictures at all.
Any help would be appreciated?
