  1. Great photo 🙂 Are you sure that isn’t an “Essex”? I don’t know but the antennae club looks quite black. I am still working on my own Skippers. I wish I could get them to pose like that 🙂


  2. Thanks Mike. I will give humming a go. I doubt that I can look more ridiculous than I already do chasing them around the field 🙂


    • The other thing, Colin, is to approach the butterfly with the camera to your eye – they don’t like to be looked at. They fly away if the see your eyes.
