Venus Pool - Essex Skippers

Not so many years ago, I remember spending ages looking for Essex Skipper. Today was dull with not a lot happening so I photographed half a dozen skippers (ignoring Large). They were all Essex Skippers and with flight periods similar, are they displacing Small Skippers?

The black underside to the antenna tips is key so an angle which reveals this is necessary...

A few full frontals!

Maybe we shjall see Marbled Whites replacing the resident 'Whites' in years to come? :-)
