With no internet connection, and time on my hands, I managed a few trips to the meadow during the odd dry spell, on the off-chance of spotting anything interesting. Yesterday morning I saw 5 different species of butterflies, skipper, red admiral, painted lady, large white and small copper. Here are a couple of skippers I captured, and I couldn't resist the manipulation in V.1.
Very many thanks for the lovely welcome back messages, and special thanks to the four wonderful members who gave my mantis their user award.
