Small Skipper Butterflies seem to have reached a peak in numbers on the little patch I watch. There were many of them although I think numbers will soon fall. I noticed male Small Skippers on several occasions following Meadow Brown Butterflies and have since read that the male skippers will investigate females of any species. I was very pleased with this image. It was the only Small Skipper to settle.
I got my eye on the Two-spot Ladybird as I sat beside the lake. It was very obliging.
There were some very attractive insects about and this was one of them. I need to get myself a decent insect guide book because the Collins I have is useless. An i d would be much appreciated. It's another image that I was very pleased with.
The sun brought the best out of this Blow Fly.
