Large Skippers

By chalkhillblue
A mating pair of Large Skippers (Ochlodes venata), a small butterfly with a wingspan of 2.8-3cm, flight period May to September, favours
a wide range of grassy habitats from meadows and hedgerow margins also hillsides up to 2,000m.
Many thanks to all for the comments and votes on my previous image, special thanks to TonyDy, CarolG, hHolmewood and PhilT2 for
