Ringlet butterflies in 2006

The ringlet butterfly, Aphantopus hyperantus, seems to be having a particularly good year here in East Sussex. I have seen it quite commonly in five or six different places.

The one in the photo was in the Brede Valley part of our village of Sedlescombe and it is a butterfly that prefers damper grassland.

Part of the reason why butterflies often have eyes on their wings is so that predators will attck these rather than the head proper. The photo shows that this works as the butterfly has lost a chunk out of its wings where the 'eyes' are situated.
