Gatekeeper Butterfly
Comments(4) # Gatekeeper Butterfly london e17

As promised yesterday, the Gatekeeper butterfly.......I told you it was similar to the Meadow Brown. Somewhat less common and also a little smaller, though that doesn't help unless they stand side by side or you manage to hold a measure up to them. The Gatekeepers like all of the Browns, the Aristocrats and Fritillaries only have four functional legs. The front two legs vary from being vestigial to, in the case of this one apparently, missing altogether. Canon EOS 5D
