Challenge #1 in the Best Wildlife Photo of the Week series. Hosted by James Larsen.
Challenge has finished
I see a ton of Wildlife photographers on this forum, lets see what you got! It can be any type of Wildlife. I would prefer the pictures to be taken in the wild, and not at a zoo - I will not disqualify your photo for being taken in a zoo, just would prefer to see it in the Wild. If you can, Resize your photos to 1600px MAX on the wide side. I'll be posting these every one to two weeks hopefully for all you Wildlife photographers!

53rd place (joint)
(Pyronia tithonus) Hiding in the long grass in the fields, showing the under wing. Also known as the Hedge Brown, it is golden on the upper wing. This butterfly spends much of its time basking with wings open, when the sexes are easy to tell apart - only the male has the distinctive dark sex brands on the forewings.
