Common Ringlet in Newfoundland

The Common Ringlet Butterfly, also known as a Large Heath, tends to be found along the edge of the road, often near ditches.  This common butterfly is extremely variable in different geographical regions in terms of color and number or absence of eye spots.

 It is very difficult to get a photo of this butterfly with spread wings. The last shot in this series is my best effort to show its back.
