I'd been trying to capture a tiny butterfly earlier without success, and when I say tiny it was tiny. However this RA decided to give me some entertainment by assuming no-one could see him on the matching Osteospermum. I only had the 55-250 on at the time so it was as it comes and hand-held. Thankfully I saw right through the disguise Smile

Thank you for all the comments and votes yesterday on my 'orange Mushroom.' Blush

NB: I'm being a complete idiot here; this WAS NOT the larger Red Admiral but the much smaller Butterfly; approximately 2CM wing tip to wing tip. It has three small light blue spots at the bottom of each wing. It also had a mate it was 'playing' with. It is the tiniest butterfly I have ever seen, and I WOULD be grateful if anyone could tell me precisely what species of butterfly it is. Sorry for confusion, I am being treated for it thoughSmile Blush Blush Blush

Updated: It is a small copper butterfly:Lycaena phlaeas and I'm grateful for the 'nod.'

I have updated the description; I'm getting so fed up with this memory / brain thing I have; at times I make mistakes. I made a mistake in the description so have left original but updated with relevant info. Sorry for any confusion.

It is a small copper and a grand shot of one too. This species has fared well this year after the past few poor summers
