Groans at the title, I know, but I can't be bothered to change it.
As ever yesterday on my ride home, I took time to look on the thistles that line the cycle track to see who was in residence, and on this occasion it was small skippers rather than 5 spot burnet moths - why do we only get 5s on campus and not 6s? - that were settling in to have a good long feed and be rather less skittish than normal.
Usually the sight of a human, or their shadow, has these little furry dart flights flittering off. Not on this occasion.
A bit of a breeze made the camera focus angry, but I got OK shots.
