I've never seen one in my vicinity - perhaps i'm not looking in the right places.

Another beauty Alan, well done.

Saw a few this morning, but couldn't get anywhere near them for the undergrowthSad

Love the light on this one Alan, which really accentuates the wonderful golden colour

Beautiful light and detail on both skipper and plant, and a graduated background that enhances both. Top notch.
