Speckled wood butterfly

Speckled woods like shady gardens, which give a similar environment to their original preferred setting, sunny glades in woodland.

The males settle on a bright sunlit patch and spread their wings to display themselves, to deter other males from intrusion while trying to attract females. White plastic garden furniture can give favourite posing positions.

The butterflies are much less conspicuous when they perch with their wings folded together.
