Another bee

This time a Bee Orchid, Ophrys apifera, which according to Wikipedia, prefers well-drained calcareous soils, and is threatened by mowing.  As it is growing in our "lawn", it is another beneficiary of our #nomowmay.  This has now become #nomowjune because the grassy meadow that was once our lawn is now full of waving grass seed heads, clover, vetch, bees and butterflies.  I'm sure the extra is a Skipper, but I am not sure which one, possibly a Large Skipper.  I hope someone out there can tell me.
