I considered myself very fortunate, to spot this Grizzled Skipper Pyrgus malvae, with the wings closedSmile

Just as the Common Blues were beginning to appear, I fear the sudden shift in the weather will knock them for sixSad
Rain here today, heavy at times & only 10C

Big hugs to Ann (pluckyfilly), for your generous U.A given to yesterday's uploadTongue

Stunning detailed capture Adrian, before I started on this site I did not know the identities of any Butterfly or Moth, still a novice but learning from these awesome captures, thanks mate, who say's you cant teach an old dog new tricks.

Regards

Trev.
