Many thanks for all the votes and comments on the Spanish Chalkhill Blue, and especially to ValSaxby for the GEA and myrab for the UA, all are very much appreciated.

I've spent the last two days with Ben and Pilu in Burgos, 220km north of Madrid. The aim was mainly to try and find the five species of Anomalous Blues that occur in the region aswell as any other lifers. This beautiful Damon Blue was one of three species of Anomalous Blues that we found and we also found five other lifers So all in all a great end to the trip which finishes tomorrow when Ben and i return to England Sad (in search of Brown Hairstreaks!) Smile.

Stunningly delicate butterfly Nigel and captured superbly. Really attractive seed head it's perched on too.

My only criticism is the background. I'd darken down the top half a little as it's a bit over powering and maybe lighten the bottom right a little too.

A brilliant close up of this tiny beauty Nigel, it looks like you've had a productive and enjoyable time on your Spanish vacation, it's back to wind and rain over here again though!Sad
