Another Spring Skipper.

The Dingy Skipper is our second spring skipper and I saw this one at Whiteways today.It is often seen in the company of the Grizzled Skipper.However it is slightly larger than the Grizzled,and the latter has a clearly more chequered pattern on its wings, which is obvious when at rest. There are eight resident skipper species in the UK although only five are found on the Isle of Wight.
