A few images of the Large Skipper (Ochlodes venata) which is our brightest and most widespread 'orange' skipper. Single-brooded and is on the wing usually from late May, reaching a peak in mid-July and disappears by the end of August. With the drier spring this year you may well have seen one much earlier.
N.B. This is a scheduled post and I will respond to comments when we return from Cumbria. FAB.
