Butterflies 2015 No 13

By tomcat    
Please accept a Dingy Skipper Erynnis tages for this evening's uploadSmile

Taken just over a week ago. Managed a few Green Hairstreaks yesterday, but there was no shelter from the damn stiff breeze and difficult to nail one without some wing movementSad

Totally blown away (and not by the breeze) by the response to the pair of Orange-tips

An exceedingly fine close up of this often overlooked butterfly, when fresh this species is far from drab and does not deserve its name!
