Speckled Wood butterflies are superbly named examples of our forebears saying what they saw, for both sexes of these attractive creatures are certainly speckled - creamy yellow patches on the upperwings are splashed onto a dark brown background; whilst a number of white centred, black 'eyespots' earned for them the early name Wood Argus, a reference to the many-eyed character of Greek mythology.

If you were named for your looks.. What would you be called?
I'm wee bald man!
