Chequered Skipper, female upperside, Glasdrum Wood, Argyll & Bute, Scotland. May 2015.
An overnight stop near Oban; hoping for a productive morning visit to Glasdrum en route to the Mull ferry. Unfortunately the weather was rather cool,
overcast and misty; no butterflies on the wing. Careful search found this female resting amongst the grasses. Encouraged her onto a broken stem and
held her up with my left hand, whilst holding the camera in my right. Bless her, she was a model of cooperation.
