Double butterfly pleasure

First grayling butterfly spot of the year, but a good one, on the Malverns of course. Two attached graylings flew by and landed on the path just in front of me (about 2pm today). They were still there, intertwined, when I left 20 minutes later.  This was a minute or two after seeing two gatekeepers doing pretty much the same thing, and flying in front of me when I moved, still attached.

I only had my mobile phone with rubbish camera to hand, but here are some cropped shots.

Some better photos of graylings on the Malvern Hills from a few years back.
