The Most Beautiful Butterfly in the World (Not)

The Meadow Brown

There is nothing actually wrong with this Butterfly except that this is the one that I find the hardest of all the Butterflies to approach. I think it has a jumped up idea of it’s own specialness.

I wouldn’t mind if it was rare but it is the most common Butterfly in the UK. I wouldn’t mind if it was exceptionally beautiful but…. well, judge for yourself.

(I decided to use some old photographs in this post because, I am hardly likely to want to do another post about Meadow Browns am I?)

I am being a little bit unfair here, the female is a bit more colourful and she is actually quite nice to look at and the most beautiful thing of all is their name Maniola jurtina.

I just wish that they would allow me to get close enough to show people how beautiful they really are. Here is a female that I shot this morning.
