A Drink from a Deptford Pink

  Silver-spotted skipper takes a drink 
from a Deptford Pink wildflower.

Kerri,
I once watched a tiger swallowtail nectaring on deptford pinks, it was funny watching it land on them and take them to the ground. This is a Silver-spotted Skipper, note the big white spot.

No idea on ID Kerri but very distinctive underwing pattern. Only Bees and flies in the garden here today but at least the sun is still shining. FAB.

Nice shot, Kerri. Seeing it on the pink shows the approximate size of the skipper.

I have to agree with Pescalune, you do seem to have an abundance of different butterflies.
All of them captured beautifully!
Love the background here.

Kerri, I don't know much about butteflies, but this is a fabulous shot. I love the little touches of vivid pink in it- a great contrast to the green.
