I could hear the garden calling this weekend - the end of summer and the end of the veggie patch. Was pulling up weeds, old long forgotten lettuces and the rank remains of tomato plants when I noticed a small bright orange and brown butterfly.
The weeding was rapidly (and rather thankfully) abandoned and the camera fetched - these are the results. The orange and brown one is (I think) a Greenish Grass Dart. There were also some small blue butterflies about. I normally only see these when they flush out of the grass, but on this day they were a little more cooperative. These turned out to be Common Grass Blues. Neither of them are more than about 3 cm from wing tip to wing tip.
I never did finish tidying the garden!
