At last there were two skippers around on Saturday, up on the plateau!
this is Oberthür's Grizzled Skipper (Pyrgus armoricanus). Second view is for his nose!

many thanks to Martin for the UA and to all of you for the C&C

Three different approaches but each captured in fine detail, colours, etc: possibly your V 1 is my favourite though.
