Gatekeeper (Pyronia tithonus), Ruspidge, Forest of Dean
Gatekeeper (Pyronia tithonus), Ruspidge, Forest of Dean
As you can see from the photograph, the Gatekeeper butterfly has an interesting type of eye. Each ocellus (simple eye) has two pupils one pointing upwards and the other down. These butterflies are quite common in the Forest and like brambles and bushes which are separated from each other by 3 or 4 metres or so.
