Female Hedge Brown in Suffolk, England, August 1972

Taken 11th July. This is the male, smaller than the female.
Taken 14th July 06. The underside of the male, which is more strongly marked.
On Coreopsis Limerock Ruby in my garden in SW France, July 2008. The dark sex brand of the male is clearly seen on the forewings.
The underside of the wings. My garden in SW France, July 2008.
A pair mating - on electric horsefield tape (not connected). SW France August 2008.
This appears to be the female flashing her wings as there is no dark sex brand visible. SW France, August 2008.
