Small Copper (Lycaena phlaeas)
A couple of these butterflies are visiting my herb garden at the moment. They are very territorial and each has a patch - and whenever one strays towards the other a battle ensues.
They're pretty little things and gleam beautifully when the light catches their wings.
If anyone's interested, I made a note of the butterflies in the herb garden in the past couple of days:
Not a bad selection :-)
(A day after I posted this a Comma and a Holly Blue joined them.)
Not easy typing this because I have a greyhound who thinks she's a lap dog and is being a bit squirmy... soon be time to head out for a walk (and a moth night at a local wood).
