Who Said Meadow Browns Can be Dull And Boring?


Meadow Brown (Maniola jurtina) – It was a morning where these butterflies were showing off their colours with their wings splayed fully open. This is the more brightly coloured female with its rich orange flashes on the wings. Meadow Browns appear to be a penny for a dozen (old saying) at present, and one can tend to easily ignore them as they don’t always have the flashy colours or patterns like other butterflies do, and they mainly hide in the grass until they are flushed out as you pass by. Yet when you come across them with their wings open on full display to the world … it can kind of take your breath away.
