Small Copper Butterfly

I was at Loop Head on Saturday 14th May.  Despite the bad weather there was a huge hatch of Caterpillars, butterflies and insects.  During my search for birds in the lanes and fields, I came across two Small Copper Butterflies Lycaena phlaeas that were flitting low along a track, avoiding the winds from the North west and basking in the sunshine along a low growing hedge.
