In the garden: Small Copper?



Pottering around the garden, I noticed this single, tiny butterfly enjoying the flowers of Verbena bonariensis It’s bright orange and I think it’s a Small Copper.

I think you are right! How lovely :) We have had loads of cabbage whites and a few tortoiseshell on the buddleia.
Oh, good. The colour is too washed out in the photo; the contrast between the orange butterfly and the purple flowers was very striking.

I've seen a lot of cabbage whites this year, but few others. Plenty of bees but far fewer butterflies than usual.
What beautiful colourations.
Aren't they? And much better in real life than in my rotten photo.
