Many thanks for your kind reception of the bee orchid.
A very special thank you to Jackie for the UA!!

here is my first ever brown argus, zooming in on the irresistible scent of the mini gorse of the Plateau d'Argentine. This place is mainly known for the wild orchids, but as you saw yesterday, they are in our garden and in the meadow but not up there this year...

A lovely shot of this attractively coloured butterfly and it's bright colourful 'perch': I have as yet to spot a butterfly up here this year, so have had no chance to try my hand at this subject, but doubt of I could do as well as this, Annette.

Like Ronnie I too have still to bag a butterfly.
Maybe they don't like Scotland.
Anyway yours is a lovely specimen.
Great capture.

Terrific detail and colours in this fab close up Annette. I think this may be a female common blue or some other blue as i've never known a brown argus to have any blue on it. It's a pity epzer Celestun hasn't posted in an age as he's an expert on butterflies of France and Spain
