This morning, I was bemoaning the fact that there seem to be very few butterflies around this year. Walking around the parkland over the last couple of years, there have been quite a few both in number and species. But this year, we have seen a few Orange-tips and a few Ringlets, but that's about all. Having said that, this morning, we did find a Large Skipper ().
They were up to their 'business' on the stem of a grass, below an empty larval case which was still attached to the stem above them. Common in the UK, these moths also like to feed on the Bird's-foot Trefoil flowers.
