A Grizzled Skipper Pyrgus malvae, taken about 90 minutes ago at Twywell.

Popped over to see how things had faired since the heavy rain the other day.
Only saw four Common Blues, three Small Heaths, a few Dingy Skippers and this fella.

Big thanks to Ron (Maiwand) for his U.A given to my GoldfinchTongue

The detail is quite immaculate, could not be better: how well the subject is set apart from the b/g.

Perfect, as always, Adrian. Temperatures rising here, forecasting mid to late 30's by Wednesday, big cracks appearing in the ground now. Carol
