This year I've started using the camera again and got these photos of marbled whites and meadow browns, which are almost the exclusive two species of my garden and fields.

Thanks Cin, I have other images of the Skipper so when I get a little time I'll have a peruse..... if it is an Essex then 2 new to me ones on one trip out
As for the frit, I did ask it nicely to show me the underside lol
Have not seen many butterflies about the garden this year, seems a lot fewer than last year. Found this yesterday on Verbena Bonnerensis of which we have quite a few about the garden.
There was also the first Gatekeeper seen this year but as it never landed no photo.
Could someone please help with ID of this flutterbye, found at a distance on Dunwich Heath last week. I wonder if it is a Skipper of some sort?
Not the best of pics as it was some distance. I dismissed Essex Skipper as it was in Suffolk, is there such a thing??
Snap Tony, I counted 18 in the garden today and they have been a joy to watch
