Why its a Ringlet

The wings are a dark brown with a this white border, and if you look at the enlarged photo you can see the small circles which give its a name. The velvety appearance and the crisp white border is indicative of a fresh adult. As they age the wings become paler.

I've edited this so that it appears in the "Invertebrates" section, where we should get the 'Likely ID' showing correctly, and more people will see it. Hope that's okay!
