Small Skipper - Thymelicus sylvestris

By Mendipman  
Taken on a beautifully calm morning up on the mendips last summer on the BC reserve at Stoke Camp, a very good site to for finding these little butterflies and the last few years have seen very good numbers. Hopefully it will be the same this year. Grin

Best viewed large.

Many thanks for the votes and comments on the previous upload of the Cowslip and especially to Carol (CarolG), Bill (chavender), Peter (Cephus), Jennifer (taggart), and Fred (Fred263) for their user awards. Also to Phil (PhilT2), gerry (gerryg), Patrizia (part), and the EPZ team for their awards on the image of the Scorpion fly, it was all so very much appreciated. GrinGrinGrinGrinGrin
