Many nectaring on garden flowers now, with a bit of fighting in between.

I've just started seeing them in the last week or two too. They seem a bit smaller than usual - an effect of the time of year maybe?

Ours are about mid-size for the species, I'd say, but they usually vary a lot in size. The meadow arguses have just appeared again too, though they continued almost all the way through winter here.
