There are still very few skippers appearing in the meadow, managed to spot this one briefly, feeding on the clover that is covering the ground at present.

Andy's comment is dead on, and surely this must be one of the hairiest butterflies I have seen, Carol.

Two tremendous close up shots of this hairy little fella, I wonder what variety he is. No skippers around here yet although in some areas dingeys and grizzled have been recorded
