Gatekeeper Butterfly (Pyronia tithonus)

Nearly all of my posts so far have been animals from Costa Rica, so here is one from the UK. I think the colour combination on this butterfly is pretty unusual, because it doesn’t seem to have any sort of camouflage advantage. Whenever I see it in the fields, it is always quite obvious and stands out from the greenery. But it clearly works for it, as there are a lot of them out there.
