Skipper

From earlier in the summer. This butterfly was quite content to carry on feeding whilst I photographed it for almost half-an-hour. If anybody can identify the precise species, I'd be grateful - as always!

Cracking close-ups Ric, well done.

Thanks, Bruce. It was an enjoyable afternoon. Hope to get more macro work done with the bugs and butterflies next year!

Think it will be Small Skipper, though your pics make it look huge ! Large Skipper is more marked, and no others are likely to be at C.Bottom.

Thanks, Steve, for the ID. I'm always happy to learn.
