Small Skipper
Comments(1) # Small Skipper london e17

I think we'll stick with butterflies for the rest of the week now that we know it's Save Our Butterflies Week and seeing as I've now finally come across more than one or two. This, the Small Skipper, is I think you'll agree almost indistinguishable from the Large Skipper that I showed you a few weeks ago. The main difference is the lack of the hook at the end of the antenna in the smaller species. I find they're easier to approach when feeding, as this one is upon some Ragwort. Canon EOS 40D
