Small and Coppery

Here’s a pretty little Small Copper butterfly that I spotted a couple of days ago on a little walk to the village pond. They’re very dainty little things ๐Ÿ™‚ I took some photos while he busily investigated every inch of this flower… he was having a good day with plenty of sunshine and flowers, and I was having a good day getting the chance to watch him and many other insects enjoying themselves ๐Ÿ™‚




These weren’t taken today, but today is rainy, so this is better ๐Ÿ™‚

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Today Was a Goodย Day.”

I like to take photos and write words ...


  1. Suzy, absolutely stunning pictures! I’m a great butterfly fan anyway, but these are lovely. As straight images, I think my favourite is the centre one, because the landscape format shows more context, and I like the way the butterfly is situated in front of – and almost haloed by – the highlights in the backdrop.
