Amongst The Iris

By KarenFB
The other day, whilst hanging out the clothes, I glanced over at the Iris leaves which are by the pond - there to my delight was a Small Copper (they really are very small!). It was beautiful, absolutely pristine. The only one I've seen this year.

Well, it would have been rude not to pop in and fetch the camera! Smile
