The small copper is one of my favourite butterflies, it's so small and fragile looking with beautiful patterning. In the past it used to be reliably seen on Corstorphine HIll in Edinburgh but is much less frequent now. So we were delighted to see two today, including this one that posed for Crafty Green Boyfriend to take its photo
Big Butterfly Count which runs until 12 August.
There were also loads of hoverflies around including several pied hoverflies
