Ringlet Butterfly (Aphantopus Hyperantus)

Location: Twyford Downs, Winchester, Uk

A dark brown butterfly easily recognizable especially when wings are closed like the mating pair in my picture with the distinctive yellow ringed eye-spots which are dark inside with white in the center. There is one generation a year and the caterpillars feed on various grasses.
