Holly Blue.

A Holly Blue (Celastrina argiolus) captured above the ground at long last using the 17-85 lens [F/10: 1/250: 83mm and cropped] during a brief local patch walk earlier this week just as it was starting to drizzle with rain but not enough to unsettle this flutter.     FAB.

  1. ...whenever I see these tiny little butterflies, I think of fairies. I might have to draw a little fairy one of these days!

  7. Nice to see the Holly Blue Frank, I saw one recently at Brocadale Nature Reserve near Doncaster but didn't manage quite as clear a shot. Linda
