|Marbled White, Melanargia galathea. Sandwich Bay, 3 June 2015.|
There were dozens of Marbled Whites. They are very pretty, and as is often the case, the undersides of their wings are more interesting than the upper surfaces.

|Small Skipper, Thymelicus sylvestris. Sandwich Bay, 3 June 2015.|
The Marbled White at the top is feeding from a Creeping Thistle. The Small White is just resting. The Small Heath is investigating a bramble flower, and the Small Skipper is feeding from a Ragwort. Those are all popular food sources Bramble hedges in particular are always good for some insect life.
There were other Lepidoptera present too. There were many Narrow-bordered Five-spot Burnets, which are day-flying moths.

Although I did not see a mature adult, there were Cinnabar larvae feeding on the Ragwort.
