Small Skipper

By Alan_Baseley    
I can't ever remember seeing as many Butterflies as I saw yesterday afternoon. Not many of them were still long enough to photograph but I managed to get one or two.
This is one of the countless Skippers, a Small Skipper, I think.

Many thanks to Paul (Skeet1Away) for his Award, yesterday
