Coppice CCXXX

By tomcat    
Possibly could have been subtitled "Gatekeeper Pyronia tithonus & friend"Grin
I never spotted the wee fella until I downloaded the imageSmile

Taken yesterday afternoon, in the main ride at The Coppice

Home from work early, as I have a dental appointmentSad. A bottom, back tooth has been giving me a bit of jip over the weekend -I can easily move it from side to side, so I guess it will be removedWink
