Speckled Wood Butterfly

This pretty little butterfly flew into our kitchen tonight and settled on the tiles above the work surface.

 

Speckled Wood's are brown with creamy yellow spots and normally inhabit woodland or hedgerows. They do not feed from flowers but feed instead on the honeydew secreted by aphids.
