Large Skipper Butterfly

Despite its name this butterfly is relatively small and difficult to photograph as it does skip about from one flower to another, never staying on one flower for very long.  On a recent walk along the river in Fordham, Cambridgeshire in the UK, we spotted several of these on the bramble flowers that were in the hedgerows.

They are distinguished by the faint chequered pattern that can be seen on both the underside and upperside of their wings.
