Continuing the butterfly theme, here's a fairly similar specimen to the Gatekeeper in the last post. The difference is subtle at a glance, but this one is a Meadow brown, probably a female. The main difference is that the hind wings have almost zero orange, and there's less orange on the forewings too. Confusing the issue is that males of both species have less orange on the forewings so a male Gatekeeper could look a bit like a female Meadow brown.
