Menage à trois

Menage à trois

Observation - Menage à trois - UK and Ireland. Description: Here we see Small Heaths in a mating embrace. Somewhat unusually - at least, I hope unusually - if you look closely there are actually three butterflies in the cluster. As to whether there are 2 x females and 1 male or 2 males and 1 female ... well!
