Aye Aye Skipper!

3rd Aug.  Having spent an hour by the lake whilst on patch today, I visited the productive insect area and was pleased to be able to find a good number of Small Skipper Butterflies.  Images are shown below.  The only other butterflies seen were a handful of White species and Meadow Browns.

I took the chance to capture images of two or three other insects.  Again images are shown below.  I find Bumble Bees probably the most difficult to photograph as they are on the move constantly.  Macro photography makes you really work, but is very rewarding at times.

I have the New Naturalist book on Bumble Bees and thought the photos let the book down.  I now have some sympathy for the photographer!
